Songfacts®:

  • This was one of two successful songs by Loggins to come out of an unsuccessful movie. This one was from Over The Top, starring Sylvester Stallone as an arm wrestler. Loggins also sang "Nobody's Fool" from Caddyshack II, a movie that was a critical and commercial disaster. >>

  • Chuck Zzz from NyNo, the movie wasn't comparable to Top Gun or Footloose, but that doesn't mean it wasn't enjoyable and didn't send a message about how important loving someone is. This song describes Link & Michael's relationship to a T.
    I personally think that the movie and song are GREAT!!
  • Christine Olney from Lake Odessa MichiganThis song says exactly how I feel about you meet me halfway just a really great song. I am hoping that one day you will meet me halfway. Thanks for this song hopefully I haven't been out of line here if I have just tell me so have a great day Kenny thinking of you as always Christine

    from Top Gun and the same film's Oscar- winning theme song "Take My Breath Away".
  • Sara from Silver Spring, MdDuring the 1980s Kenny Loggins was known as the "movie soundtrack king" but only three of the movies he sang during that period, Top Gun,
    Footloose and Caddyshack were hits.
