I'll then look up whatever dumb dumb 80s flick I was watching and it will indeed have been composed by Silvestri! He's the easiest because of Back to the Future. Who has not seen that movie a million times?

Then I found a fan site that went on and on about it. I find fans freaky. Anyway, one of them also pointed out that this song:
