Interesting - I never had the soundtrack album and didn't know it was considered a separate track. I always just assumed that they had done a special mix of the background vocals in the "ohhh heart beating" breakdown in the middle of the song.

While it certainly could have been a Fairlight (it was brand new and Kenny Loggins would definitely be in a position to get access to one), I'd put just as much money on it just being flown/looped multi-tracked background vocals. Have you ever read the story about how 10cc produced "I'm Not In Love"? The intro of Caddyshack always reminded me of that sound.

It really is amazing how trivial something like this would be these days with a DAW and one or two plugins, and how involved the process was not so long ago.
