Lou Gramm: Lost in the Shadows (1987)

Well, as it turns out, sometimes an iconic movie has two songs that make it what it is. In this case, not only does Gerard McMann's Cry Little Sister become inseparable from the 1987 cult hit The Lost Boys. So, too, does Lost in the Shadows, the soundtrack contribution performed by Lou Gramm, the lead singer from Foreigner and owner of one of the clearest and most characteristic voices of the 1980s.

Here is the original video from the song, featuring some selective and well-timed imagery from the film.

It is also somewhat cool that in this video, Lou Gramm looks like he could well have been the fifth Lost Boy. He could easily have had the role portrayed by Alex Winter (a.k.a. Bill S. Preston, Esq). There he is, way in the back...
