Help to keep our cinematic and musical history alive by sharing my posts! Thank you!

I love the movie “The Last Dragon,” starring Taimak & Vanity (of Vanity 6). The movie was released in 1985. Although the movie is essentially about martial arts, but because it has a music element to it, within the first minute of watching this movie, you’ll immediately realize it’s so 80s 😂. Not only was this movie wildly popular (and to be honest, I think that was due to Vanity being in the movie), the soundtrack had a lot of hits as well. Such as “Rhythm Of The Night” by DeBarge (which hit #1 in the U.S.), and “Peeping Tom” by Rockwell (which peaked @ #21 on the dance chart). But there was one song from this great soundtrack that did not get much credit (in my opinion). “First Time On A Ferris Wheel,” which was song by Smokey Robinson and Syreeta. This was, and still is an amazingly beautiful song. It reminds me of one of those “new teenage love,” kind of songs. By the way, the way Syreeta sings, she reminds me of Deniece Williams a lot.
