Young Hearts (Commuter)
The Movie This is From: Karate Kid
The Better Known Song From This Soundtrack: The Moment of Truth (Survivor) Note: Cruel Summer by Bananarama does feature in the film but isn’t on actual the soundtrack.
Electro-pop band Commuter is just one of the lesser known acts on this soundtrack which also includes songs by the equally little known St. Regis and Baxter Roberston. Commuter’s lead singer Dave Merenda went on to have a successful career as a composer, principally for series television.
Fun fact: Merenda is also a co-composer of the Sarah McLachlan classic I Will Remember You.
