Top Gun: Maverick
Jennifer Connelly plays Maverick’s love interest, Penny Benjamin, in “Top Gun: Maverick” and during her entrance scene in the sequel, an interesting track plays that has absolutely no connection to the Tony Scott-directed classic "Top Gun." However, for fans of one of Connelly's career-defining roles and those that know how to dance the magic dance, it'll likely ring a few bells.
That's right — Connelly's Penny enters to "Top Gun" franchise backed by the music of her "Labyrinth" co-star and late, great music icon, David Bowie. The two appeared in Jim Henson's wild fantasy that saw the actress enter the titular maze to save her younger brother from Bowie's ball-juggling Goblin King.
The song is easy to miss if you're too busy getting hit with the sparks firing between Maverick and his new love interest, but should you manage to pull yourself out of the romance, you can hear Bowie's 1983 classic, "Let's Dance." It’s a song that suits the vibe going off between these two characters, who totally sell a history together that we've never seen before.
