Stan Bush has to consider himself one of the luckiest men in the world to be able to work with JCVD. We’ll get to that in a minute As many of you should know, I’m a huge fan of the old Jean Claude Van Damme classics. Seriously, how could you not be? And when it comes to the best of the best it certainly doesn’t get any better than Bloodsport or Kickboxer. Speaking of Bloodsport, perhaps one of the more overlooked features of this movie is the sick soundtrack. I’m taking synthesizers up the wazoo. I’m talking “Kumite, Kumite, Kumite.”
Actually, you really can’t mess with “Kumite.” It’s definitely the coolest song in the movie but a not so distance second is “On My Own” by Stan Bush. The song itself was performed by Paul Delph. It’s certainly on the softer and more sensitive side but it really hits you in the feels doesn’t it? In case you forget, this is the song they use when Van Damme is roaming the streets on his own having nightmares about Chong Li while riding on a bus.
It’s a real tearjerker. Just listen to Delph belt out those lyrics!
