Good song (and hated by many) from the 80s which was lots of fun.

1) You will need decent General Midi soundfont, the one I used is below:
a) "Musyng Kite ":
b) You need to unpack the sfpack file to an sf2 file:
c) Once you do this, you will need to re-set each instrument to this soundfont AND patch.

2) Dexed (FM Synth) is a must for this one, as the original soundtrack used DX7 (well technically the TX816) and Dexed is pretty damn close:

3) You (might) need the original ROM for the dx7, load it into Dexed. They are in this zip along with vocals.

4) I used Big Beauty VST for the Distortion Guitars:

(Bonus Fun - 80s were nuts about gated reverb)
If you want a more authentic version, try adding a Gated Reverb on Toms, Snare, and Lead Brass. Preset #6 on this VST will do the trick: or you can do it manually, tutorial here:

Here's my version (not using gated reverb), soundcloud wouldn't accept it:
