St Elmos Fire Man In Motion

St Elmos Fire Man In MotionSt Elmos Fire Man In Motion, “St. Elmo’s Fire (Man in Motion)” is a song recorded by John Parr. It hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 on 7 September 1985 and peaked at number six in the UK, Parr’s home country.

The song was originally written by David Foster and John Parr for the Canadian athlete Rick Hansen, who at the time was going around the world in his wheelchair to raise awareness for spinal cord injuries. His journey was called the “Man in Motion Tour.”

The song was used as the theme song for the film St. Elmo’s Fire, and became a number-one hit for John Parr around the world and provided many awards and a Grammy nomination.

Strangely, this hit song did not also appear on a John Parr album – except on a very rare 1985 CD re-release of his self-titled album from 1984 in West Germany.
