  • Continuing the Top 50 Movie Songs of The 80’s! A #48 is “All The Right Moves” by Jennifer Warnes and Chris Thompson.

  • All The Right Moves was one of the lesser films in the early career of Tom Cruise, but it does hold a small place in pop culture history for one reason: Tom’s full frontal Thetan! It’s actually been a cause of debate for 30 years. Was it a body double? A few years ago co-star Lea Thompson set the record straight by saying it was definitely all Tom. But I digress … the title song was performed by Jennifer Warnes (who’ll you be seeing twice more on this list) and Chris Thompson, and debuted on the chart on November 12, 1983, and peaked four weeks later at #85. Take a listen – ALL THE RIGHT MOVES. Monday’s clue – “I taste tomorrow in your kiss.”
