Survivor released their 3rd LP “Eye Of The Tiger” on June 8, 1982. The album followed the release of the movie “Rocky III” which had been released on May 28th of that year. (The single for “Eye Of The Tiger” was released one day after the films release).
And it all started when Sylvester Stallone, who had wanted to use Queen’s “Another One Bites the Dust” for the film but was denied by the band, called Survivor founding member (and very successful song writer) Jim Peterik and asked him to write a song for the movie. Yes Jim is a good song writer….
The song is still huge to this day. And the film also introduced many to the lovable Mr. T.
Happy 36th Birthday to Survivor’s “Eye Of The Tiger” LP!! ‘risin up’
