If I Turn You Away (Vikki Moss)
The Movie This is From: St Elmo’s Fire
The Better Known Songs From This Soundtrack: St Elmo’s Fire (Man in Motion) (John Parr), Love Theme From St Elmo’s Fire (David Foster)
Canadian singer Moss isn’t well known but she did know composer/producer David Foster and that no doubt landed her the lead on this underrated track. Foster co-wrote almost every song on this soundtrack and his co-writer here subsequently became very well known himself – it’s Richard Marx.
Fun fact: If you’re looking for more of Vikki Moss check out the terrific ballad Love At Second Sight on Foster’s 1983 album Best of Me.
