Music Monday ~ Eye of the Tiger (Survivor)

Upon the request of Sylvester Stallone, the American rock group Survivor wrote this song for the 1982 blockbuster movie Rocky III. It speaks of a man's fight for survival.... Definitely a feel-good song.

I am featuring this song today as a tribute to the recent victory of boxing champ Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao... He made all Filipinos very proud!

"We are witnessing one of the all-time boxing greats, and the impressive part about it is that Manny Pacquiao doesn't talk about how great he is. He proves it, fight in and fight out."

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 change your passion for glory
Don't lose your grip on the dreams of the past
You must fight just to keep them alive

It's the eye of the tiger, it's the cream of the fight
Risin' up to the challenge of our rival
And the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night
And he's watchin' us all in the eye of the tiger

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

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

That was an excellent fight. Manny did so good. It was exciting the whole bout. I loved watching it and this song is so appropriate for him. I hope you are well my friend :) You've been real quiet for a while :) xoxox
