“Holding Out For a Hero” – Footloose

Music and Lyrics: Jim Steinman & Dean Pitchford

Ariel, the daughter of a conservative minister, sings about the man she is waiting for in this vivacious number from this musical based on the film of the same name about a town where dancing has been outlawed.  Maybe she was waiting for pop star Enrique Iglesias who released the album Escape on this day in 2001 which included the song “Hero” in which he purred, “I can be your hero, baby.”
