Currently Booming: 80's Lost Hit- Eddy Grant - 'Romancing the Stone'


Since it's soundtrack Sunday here at Daily Boom I was trying to think of something a bit different and then this song came to me. Not long after recording "Electric Avenue" Eddy Grant was also featured on the title track for Romancing The Stone. The 1984 flick made just under $90 million worldwide at the box office and it most certainly helped to launch Kathleen Turner's career. It also reminded viewers that Michael Douglas was a very capable leading man.

The title track is actually pretty catchy and I've always liked it a bit more than Avenue, which basically is to this day considered Grant's musical calling card. Check out the video below, do you remember it? Are you a fan of Romancing The Stone?
