Another 80's soundtrack gem, from the mind of Krull composer James Horner. This one has sort of a cheesy "island"/"jungle" feel, due to the inclusion of steel drums, pan flutes, and tribal, nad-pumping beats, but the plentiful saxophone riffage keeps it more Miami Vice than Congo. Smooth as all Hell, but still intense and charmingly synth-y. James Horner, John Matrix. John Matrix, James Horner. GO!
One caveat: The score also includes a bonus (???) track, the brutally Eighties-adelic "We Fight For Love" by The Power Station. You can listen to the song below (accompanied by a Commando best-of video) to decide whether it's your cup of tea or not. I dig it, but the cheese runs deep on this one:
