Time to buzz the tower… First off, Top Gun is a horrible movie. So why the heck did we write a song about it? Well, if you are anywhere from 10-100 years old, and you’ve lived in the US for at least a few months, you have involuntarily watched the crummy thing 55 times. Despite the film’s flaws, we’ve always had a tendency to quote it here and there amongst the band. The first line from the song, “You say its not my flying, it’s my attitude” is taken from Val Kilmer’s character Ice man. While we are on the road together, we use that line quite a bit while giving each other a hard time. “it’s not this traffic, it’s your attitude” “It’s not your social skills, it’s your attitude” “It’s not your crabs, it’s your attitude” You get it.
Anyway, how did this “Maverick” song come about?
Brandon came up to me, and said “that movie ‘Overboard’ with Kurt Russell cracks me up, we should write a song about it!” I said, “you’re right that show’s hilarious, but we should write a song about Top Gun, we quote it enough.” He liked the idea, so we started compiling what quotes in the movie we thought were funny. The result? Well, maybe we should have written a tune about a good movie… like Time Bandits.
