... FOUR?! Okay, those songs were okay but they were hardly worth writing home about!

#42: The Touch

Featured In: Transformers: The Movie (1986)

Composer: Stan Bush

Performer: Stan Bush

 
Description:
"The Touch" is a rock song by American singer and guitarist Stan Bush. The song features prominently in the 1986 animated film The Transformers: The Movie, and appears on the soundtrack album released the following year.

The story in Transformers: The Movie takes place in 2005, twenty years after the events of the TV series' second season and serves to bridge into the third season. Set to a soundtrack of synth-based incidental music and hard-driving metal music, the movie has a decidedly darker tone than the television series, with detailed visuals in Toei Animation's typical anime film styling, and Decepticon villains that are more menacing, killing without hesitation. The film features several grand battles in which a handful of major characters meet their end. The film's tagline was: "Beyond good. Beyond evil. Beyond your wildest imagination."

Fun Fact:  "The Touch" was also released as a double A-side with Weird Al Yankovic's "Dare to Be Stupid", another song from the soundtrack album.

I wouldn't call The Touch a great song, but the way it was used at that moment in that movie, coupled with my 9-year-old sense of awe and wonderment left a permanent mark in my brain that lasts to this day. :^)

I'd call it a pretty good song. It's a fine example of how music and drama come together to produce something glorious.

#41: Eye of the Tiger

Featured In: Rocky III

Composer: Frankie Sullivan & Jim Peterik

Performer: Survivor

 
Description:
"Eye of the Tiger" was released in May 1982 as a single from their third album Eye of the Tiger. It was written at the request of actor Sylvester Stallone, who was unable to get permission for Queen's "Another One Bites the Dust". The song was to be the theme song for the movie Rocky III in which Stallone was playing the main role. The movie version of the song is different from the album version because it features tiger growls

In an interview with Songfacts, co-writer Jim Peterik explained the song's title. "At first, we wondered if calling it 'Eye of the Tiger' was too obvious. The initial draft of the song, we started with 'It's the eye of the tiger, it's the thrill of the fight, rising up to the spirit of our rival, and the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night, and it all comes down to survival.' We were going to call the song 'Survival'. In the rhyme scheme, you can tell we had set up 'rival' to rhyme with 'survival'. At the end of the day, we said, 'Are we nuts?' That hook is so strong, and 'rival' doesn't have to be a perfect rhyme with the word 'tiger.' We made the right choice and went with 'Eye Of The Tiger'."

Fun Fact: Newt Gingrich has used it at his events since 2009, and in early 2012 was asked by the song's creators to stop doing so. As of January 2012, they have sued Gingrich to demand he cease playing it and to compensate them. I guess because they're a bunch of morons.

Also, is anyone else confused about the actual lyrics? I have always thought it was "It's the thrill of the fight, but I've seen it listed as "the cream of the fight".
