'EYE OF THE TIGER’

From: Rocky III (1982)

Sylvester Stallone wanted Queen’s ‘Another One Bites The Dust’ for Rocky III. Unfortunately for The Italian Stallion’s real-life incarnation, Brian May and the boys declined his kind offer, and he had to make do with Survivor’s ‘Eye Of The Tiger’. His second choice – written at Sly’s request – went on to sell nine million copies to date, and inspire a pretty terrible Gary Busey movie called, yes, Eye Of The Tiger, which came out four years later.

I felt that The Karate Kid and TBOTRK were similar to both of those -- though they are undoubtedly huge earworms -- so if I get the time I'll add them on Thursday (I'm away today). As for Cap, I wanted something new on the list, as a lot of it was very nostalgic (ironic, considering the song's nature...) More

Oompa Loompas predicted the fake tan epidemic way back in 1971, who knew? I'm more partial to Underground from Labyrinth myself with the gospel choir that kicks in midway through, one of David Bowie's forgotten songs that should have been a bigger hit in 1986. More
