His music is perfect for those long days at work. With a vape in hand to make the nostalgia that much better lol..

Ah who are we kidding? He isn't revolutionary but he made some good rhythms that make me wish I was born a little earlier than 1985

Still being an 80's child there must be a reason I like his work so much. Most of it over the last couple decades has been released or reissued. The fletch soundtrack, both from 85 and the sequel, still missing most of the score and the second film's release is just the score..

The running man deluxe reissue was great as it had all the missing tracks and demos. Save for one of course. Both beverly hills cop deluxe reissues we also great. All those tracks finally saw the light of day after sitting in a vault since 1984

Top gun's score is the only big one really missing and hopefully it will be released. This guy deserves it. He is the sound of the 80's for a lot of people including myself
