Ruined Gun or Top Landscape

EDM pioneer Giorgio Moroder gave us the first track in 1984. In 1986 he collaborated with his protégé, Harold Faltermeyer, on the Top Gun soundtrack. Faltermeyer gives us the second track above.

What’s happening here?

Sounds to me like the student is copying off the teacher. Or Moroder created both and gave Faltermeyer the credit. I’m leaning towards the latter. I think at the very least the guitar track off both songs came off the same synthesizer. And maybe some early work on The NeverEnding Story was recycled for Top Gun.
