Top Gun Anthem

Have you seen the hit movie of this summer, Top Gun: Maverick? After 36 years of its first movie and another one year of delay because of the pandemic, the blockbuster sequel finally made it to the cinemas in June, and almost immediately took over the box offices everywhere.


No matter you are a fan of Maverick or not, the minute the movie starts, you will be impressed and perhaps even haunted by the easy yet harmonious electric guitar music: the Top Gun Anthem. (Listen to the original version here: https://youtu.be/zCTJmXrgsFg)


Today we’d like to share a cover of the Anthem rearranged and performed by Australian Air Force Band.



Although the melody is simple, the chords behind the motive create the essential emotions that teleport audience to the plots and scenes in the movie. If you understand Mandarin, here is a musical analysis of the Anthem: https://youtu.be/W-p5Va8uOlE


Isn’t it amazing how these simple few notes convey and conclude the whole movie? That’s the magic of music!
