Eye of the Tiger


Eye_of_the_Tiger_Survivor

So I think we all can agree that Eye of the Tiger is one killer song. I absolutely love it and consider it one of Survivor’s best pieces. It was written in 1982 for Rocky III. Sylvester Stallone asked for it specifically, because he wanted a song to really capture where Rocky was in the third film. That’s also why they repeat the phrase “eye of the tiger” fifty-majillion times.

These song is awesome on so many levels. First there is the great introduction; it just really gets you going and into it. Second we have the amazing lyrics! These are just sooo good!

Risin’ up back on the street
Did my time, took my chances
Went the distance now I’m back on my feet
Just a man and his will to survive
So many times, it happens too fast
You trade your passion for glory
Don’t lose your grip on the dreams of the past
You must fight just to keep them alive

(Chorus)
It’s the Eye of the Tiger
It’s the thrill of the fight
Rising up to the challenge of our rival
And the last known survivor
Stalks his prey in the night
And he’s watching us all
With the Eye of the Tiger

Face to face, out in the heat
Hangin’ tough, stayin’ hungry
They stack the odds till’ we take to the street
For we kill with the skill to survive

(Repeat Chorus)
It’s the Eye of the Tiger
It’s the thrill of the fight
Rising up to the challenge of our rival
And the last known survivor
Stalks his prey in the night
And he’s watching us all
With the Eye of the Tiger

Risin’ up straight to the top
Had the guts, got the glory
Went the distance, now I’m not gonna stop
Just a man and his will to survive

It’s the Eye of the Tiger
It’s the thrill of the fight
Rising up to the challenge of our rival
And the last known survivor
Stalks his prey in the night
And he’s watching us all
With the Eye of the Tiger.

The Eye of the Tiger
The Eye of the Tiger
The Eye of the Tiger
The Eye of the Tiger

Third, their music video is awesome, I mean watch this thing.

Fourthly, It is great dancing music! I don’t know about you all, but as soon as I hear that song, I start dancing. I don’t really dance so it looks more like a strange movement interpretive thing, but yeah the music moves me. And I don’t think anyone expresses how one gets into this song better than Jensen Ackles. For those of you who may not know who he is he plays Dean Winchester on Supernatural, and one day he was just goofing around and started dancing to Eye of the Tiger expressing how I truly feel.

Here’s the video, I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do! 😀
