Everybody Cut, Everybody Cut, Everybody Cut Footloose!!!
Yes, Its Kevin Bacon rocking a small town to the tunes of Kenny Loggins. This was one of my favorites for the year 1984. Footloose was a soundtrack that everybody could enjoy.
What was the plot?
Moving in from Chicago, newcomer Ren McCormack (Kevin Bacon) is in shock when he discovers the small Midwestern town he now calls home has made dancing and rock music illegal. As he struggles to fit in, Ren faces an uphill battle to change things. With the help of his new friend, Willard Hewitt (Christopher Penn), and defiant teen Ariel Moore (Lori Singer), he might loosen up this conservative town. But Ariel’s influential father, Reverend Shaw Moore (John Lithgow), stands in the way.
Amazingly enough the soundtrack to the film was on the Billboard 200 for three months as the number one album that year. It still rocks and still has a place in my heart.
