"Axel F" by Harold Faltermeyer




"Axel F", the theme from Beverly Hills Cop starring Eddie Murphy, hit number 1 on the pop chart back in the day. It was the reason I was motivated to practice playing keyboards, and how I got into Herbie Hancock, who I just learned is often miscredited for writing it. The composer of the funky keyboards (Roland/Moog/Yamaha DX-7) / LinnDrum synth masterpiece is named Harold Faltermeyer. My apologies for not clearing up my own misinformation before I blogged about it on my music blog.
