I somehow got into a conversation today about great soundtracks to military films, and everyone (except me) took it for granted that Top Gun was the best, by a wide margin.

Which, just -- what?? Top Gun??

And granted, part of this is because I liked the Berlin that did "Sex (I'm a ...)" and "The Metro," while "Take My Breath Away" made me want to hurl. But I think a large part of it is that I was a good 15-20 years older than everyone else there.

But still -- Top Gun??

There are a ton of military movies with great soundtracks -- Bridge on the River Kwai, Magnificent Seven [which is technically a Western, but actually has a lot military elements] -- shoot, I think I'd even take that dorky song from Kelly's Heroes over *Top Gun*.
