    At first I thought this was too generic, but the "Kumite" chanting says otherwise.

    Sidenote: I remember going to the theater to see this and the box office saleslady giving my Dad a hard time about taking 9 yr old me with him to see this "R-rated bloodbath." :) I turned out fine, and, thanks to this movie, kicked some ass at the next school fight when someone blew chalk dust in my eyes.

    Song title said in the movie, right before the song starts


    Not sure if this was posted already.

    Nobody's Fool by Kenny Loggins. It was the theme to "Caddyshack II", and there's a lyric in there that says "Back to the shack". Cringe-inducing, although it is a great song.

    He also says "If time has taught me anything, you gotta learn to be the ball." :eek:

    Back when Helen Slater got to be in things, and Night Ranger was asked to provide tunes for films.

    things were better before


    I actually haven't even seen the movie, but I have Night Rangers greatest hits and it said something about being on a soundtrack.

    Doesn’t have lyrics but I can’t hear top gun mentioned without instantly hearing Steve Stevan’s guitar in my head...

    It was a simpler, cocaine-fueled time.

    7 pages in and no one has mentioned one of the greatest 80's movies (especially if you were a teenage boy in the 80's.........Phoebe Cates........)

    "Moving in Stereo" is definitely memorable in Fast Times, but it wasn't written for the film.

    Well 1992 but this is the first one that sprung to mind not already listed - I tried to watch the movie but... it was a struggle and I eventually gave up.

    The song is certainly much better than the film IMHO -
