#20 – Rita Coolidge – “All Time High” – (1983)

This song just sounds like a sappy movie theme song from the 1980s. Which is exactly what it is. I don’t think sappy was the intention, but it’s just the nature of the time period in which it was written and the artist chosen to perform it. Apparently, Barbara Broccoli, the daughter of the producer of the Bond films at the time, was a big fan of Rita Coolidge (who wasn’t all that popular by the time 1983 rolled around). Broccoli would play Rita Coolidge albums around her dad until he finally took the hint and hired Coolidge to sing the theme for Octopussy.
