    No. Came out on So several years before Say Anything was released.

    TRIVIA. John Hughes said that Smithereens' Girl Like You was going to be a theme song for the movie, but decided against as it gave the story away too much.

    EDIT: this was all mentioned already. Sorry. Stressful morning at work, and all.

    Howard the Duck's theme song by Thomas Dolby featuring Leah Thompson, George Clinton, on vocals and Joel Walsh on guitar?

    Neil Diamond "Heartlight"

    But I just looked this up. It wasn't in ET, it was inspired by ET and he actually had to pay royalties for using the ideas. HA!

    I just use any excuse to post a video of Tim Capello. Music needs more oiled up, sax playing bodybuilders

    Perhaps we need a separate "Buff Musicians" thread. We could Kick it off with Tim Capello & Alice Coopers old guitarist. There must be others.

    That was Lindsay Buckingham? OMG I never knew that. I seriously thought it was Kenny Loggins.

    I guess I was....in....the....danger zone?
