Axel F is the most iconic element of the Beverly Hills Cop series, without a doubt, but my favorite track from Harold Faltermeyer's is actually on Side B of this long extinct single. "Shootout" the track featured when Axel, Billy, and Taggart break into Victor Maitland's estate is far more funkier and upbeat tune. It's literally impossible to put the needle on Side B in a bad mood and not come away in a good mood. It's the kind of track that you just want to last for a whole hour. In fact, I might just mix my own version that does exactly that...

Having searched for a CD copy of the London mix (the best one as already mentioned) I couldn't find one, but there is an edited version on an old compilation 'the Greatest Hits of 1985'. Forgot how good it was!

(couldn't see this on here!)
