Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger” hits #1 (1982)

“Eye of the Tiger” is a song by American rock band, Survivor. It was released as a single from their third album and was also the theme song for the 1982 film Rocky III, which was released a day before the single. It was recorded at the request of Rocky III star, writer, and director Sylvester Stallone, after Queen denied him permission to use “Another One Bites the Dust”. The film version  contains tiger growls, which don’t appear on the album version!
