About the Book
A fun and, like, totally incomplete guide to the place where ‘80’s music and ‘80’s movies collide. Animated films, heavy metal horror films, punk movies, breakdancing movies, movies where the dancing is dirty, and a whole lot more gets the treatment here. Join filmmaker and author Michael J. Heagle for the story behind great movie songs, hit soundtrack albums, and musical movies of the 1980’s. Synthesizers and Saxophones tackles everything from movie musicals like Purple Rain and Streets of Fire, to cult movies with a musical bent like The Last Dragon and Howard the Duck. With movie reviews, behind the scenes stories, and chart-busting hits galore!
