Southern Pacific - Shoot for the top

Captain Howdy

Recommended Posts

Just watching Police academy 4 and this song came on, and I forgot how much I loved it.

Back in the day when this movie came out I bought the soundtrack vinyl and as someone who was only just dipping his toe into rock at the time, and listened to a lot of pop I loved this album.

Listening to this song now, it gives me a cool lightweight AOR vibe, which is weird considering when I just looked this band up they are actually a country rock band, yet no signs of country on this one.

Autograph and Loverboy come to mind for similarity.

As far as I can tell, all their albums are more country orientated and this never appeared on any of them, just this soundtrack.

I have heard a couple of Eagles sounding tunes as well though, so who knows.
