Kenny Loggins - Danger Zone

Revvin' up your engine - listen to her howl and roar
Metal under tension - begging you to touch and go

Highway to the Danger Zone
Right into the Danger Zone

Heading into twilight - spreading out her wings, tonight
She got you jumping off the deck - shoving into overdrive

Highway to the Danger Zone
I'll take you right into the Danger Zone

She'll never say hello to you until you get it on a red-line overload
You'll never know what you can do until you get it up as high as you can go

Out along the edge - it's always where I burn to be
Further on the edge - hotter the intensity

Highway to the Danger Zone
Gonna take you right into the Danger Zone

Highway to the Danger Zone
Right into the Danger Zone

"Danger Zone" is a rock song from the soundtrack to the 1986 American motion picture Top Gun. It was composed by Giorgio Moroder and Tom Whitlock, and performed by Kenny Loggins. Moroder originally asked Bryan Adams to record this song, but he was said to have rejected it because he had disliked the jingoism expressed in Top Gun. The rock group Toto was also supposed to perform the song, but due to legal matters, it was passed to Loggins. The second single released from the Top Gun soundtrack, "Danger Zone" was a commercial success, peaking at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song continues to be popular today, continuing in heavy rotation on Classic Rock radio stations in the United States. The song was covered by Oh, Hush! and released on the band's Don't Judge a Record by Its Covers EP. It was also featured in the films Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay, Sex Drive and 17 Again, the episode "Eight Misbehavin" of the television series The Simpsons and in the episode "Slutty Pumpkin" from the televison series How I Met Your Mother . Dann Huff, lead vocalist and guitarist from '80s glam metal group Giant performed guitar work on this song. A music video was released to promote the single. The video featured footage of Loggins singing, as well as clips from the film Top Gun.
