♫ Remembering the 80s ♫: LOVE THEME FROM ST. ELMO'S FIRE (Instrumental) by David Foster

Remember that movie - St. Elmo's Fire - from the 'Brat Pack' genre? Yes?
Then you'll definitely remember the "Love Theme from St. Elmo's Fire" (the instrumental theme to the movie by Canadian composer/producer David Foster).
The song, which was released in 1986, hit No. 15 on the US pop charts.

A scene from the movie 'St. Elmo's Fire'
The 1985 St. Elmo's Fire film starred Emilio Estevez, Rob Lowe, Andrew McCarthy, Demi Moore, Judd Nelson, Ally Sheedy, and Mare Winningham, which centred on a group of friends that have just graduated from Georgetown University and their adjustment to their post-university lives and the responsibilities of encroaching adulthood.
