The Goon Squad – Eight Arms to Hold You [1985]

25th Aniversary of The Goonies this month, so this cut is the Freestyle monster that was featured on the sountrack (and deleted Octopus scene from the movie). Although it smacks of 85 so much, Arthur Baker does a stellar job of bringing some fantastic synth mastery to the proceedings.

From Discogs
With the breakdance scene begining lose popularity the music was starting to break into two categories, Rap and freestyle.
Eight Arms to hold you which appeared on the the Goonies movie soundtrack exploded onto the underground dance scene and people did not know what kind of style this music was but in actual fact it was a massively under supported by radio anthem of the dawning garrage/Freestyle scene.
Produced by Arthur Baker, Huge keyboard synth arrangments and a catchy song make this a must for all Freestyle lovers. Should really have been the “Let the Music Play” of Freestyle.
