I started going to Elementary school in 1990 and fell in love with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I don't think I was allowed to watch the live-action movie which is probably why it wasn't on this list, but I remember having a lot of action figures.


The 80's are over and with it the amazing movie soundtracks. In their place I found a new love of video game music.
