Bit By Bit (Stephanie Mills)
The Movie This is From: Fletch
The Better Known Song From This Soundtrack: None
The Fletch soundtrack features a number of big 1980s stars – Kim Wilde, Dan Hartman, John Farnham and a Harold Faltermeyer fresh off his success with Axel F from Beverly Hills Cop. But it produced no major songs. The biggest hit was this song by Stephanie Mills. Having only reached #78 on the US Hot 100 it’s only arguably a “hit” but it is most certainly “under appreciated” – this fine piece of pop should have been massive.
Fun fact: The writers are Faltermeyer and Franne Golde. You’ve definitely heard other tunes by Golde, she’s written A LOT of great songs.
