The film was directed by Taylor Hackford and stars Rachel Ward, Jeff Bridges and James Woods alongside Jane Greer (who had starred in Out of the Past), Alex Karras, Richard Widmark and Dorian Harewood. The film revolves around an aging American football star who is hired by a mobster to find his girlfriend.The film’s soundtrack, nominated for a Grammy Award, featured songs from Big Country, Kid Creole & the Coconuts, Stevie Nicks and Genesis breakout stars Mike Rutherford, Peter Gabriel and Phil Collins; the latter performed the title song, which was nominated for an Academy Award as Best Original Song and for a Golden Globe Award as Best Original Song, being one of the top-selling singles of 1984. While the soundtrack to the 1984 Out of the Past remake Against All Odds is now best remembered for Phil Collins’ classic theme song for the movie, the album also features several other memorable songs, as well as excerpts from Larry Carlton’s synthesizer-heavy score. “Against All Odds (Take a Look at Me Now”) remains not only one of Collins’ definitive singles, but one of the 1980s’ best love songs, a perfect mix of over-the-top drama and genuine emotion that has aged better than anyone might have expected in 1984. The rest of the album, meanwhile, sounds completely of its time, but that’s a big part of its appeal; songs such as Stevie Nicks’ brooding “Violet and Blue,” Mike Rutherford’s “Making a Big Mistake,” and Big Country’s surprisingly dour “Balcony” make the soundtrack a veritable time capsule of mid-’80s mainstream pop. “Walk Through the Fire” may not be one of Peter Gabriel’s strongest or most memorable tracks, but it’s still a decent example of his ability to mix the experimental with the accessible. Kid Creole & the Coconuts’ “My Male Curiosity” sounds just as fey and wolfish, and as playful and stylish, as ever. Carlton’s synth-and-guitar-driven score tends toward the melodramatic, particularly on tracks like “Search,” “Solitario,” and the unintentionally hilarious “Rock and Roll Jaguar,” but they’re all a part of the fun. While it’s not an especially great soundtrack, Against All Odds is still an entertaining ’80s artifact.Video: Against All Odds (Take A Look At Me Now) 1984
