October 5, 1952: Harold Faltermeyer Born

Harold FaltermeyerOn this day in 1952, Harold Faltermeyer was born in Munich, Germany. This musician’s synthesizer-heavy scores are more indicative of 80s movies than those of any other composer.

Faltermeyer is an accomplished musician across the board, having produced numerous albums. In the 1970s, he moved to Los Angeles in the 70s to play keyboards on the soundtrack for “Midnight Express” and got his first big break composing the score for “Beverly Hills Cop.” He had a great run in the 80s, scoring numerous films before moving back to Germany at the end of the decade.

Faltermeyer now has a variety of projects, but recently composed the score for “Cop Out,” with Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan. Below is some his greatest work.
