Short tunes on #Ukulele: 'Axel F' from 'Beverly Hills Cop'

Riff known even by those who never saw the movie, Axel F is the main theme of the soundtrack of the 1984 movie Beverly Hills Cop: an electronic instrumental theme performed by Harold Faltermeyer.


From Wikipedia:

The title comes from the main character’s name, Axel Foley (played by Eddie Murphy), in the film. (It also happens to be in the key of F minor.) Faltermeyer recorded the song using five instruments: a Roland Jupiter-8 provided the distinctive “supersaw” lead sound, a Moog modular synthesizer 15 provided the bass, a Roland JX-3P provided chord stabs, a Yamaha DX7 was used for bell and marimba sounds and a LinnDrum was used for drum programming. In addition to the Beverly Hills Cop soundtrack, the song also appears on Faltermeyer’s 1988 album Harold F. as a bonus track. Reportedly, Faltermeyer was against including it, but MCA insisted as it was his most recognizable track.
