In 1985 “St. Elmo’s Fire (Man in Motion)” peaks No. 1 in the Hot 100 Charts

“St. Elmo’s Fire (Man in Motion)” usually known only as “St.Elmo’s Fire”, by John Parr hits No. 1 in the Hot 100 U.S charts on September 7th 1985. 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.” Featured in the soundtrack of 80’s movie “St. Elmo’s Fire”, it became more popular than the movie itself and even got a Grammy nomination. Remains to this day John Parr’s biggest hit and signature song and a standard play on Classic Rock and 80’s radio stations.
