Flashback Friday: “Eye Of The Tiger” by Survivor

Thought we’d go with “Eye Of The Tiger” this week, which of course is from the third Rocky movie that introduced Mr. T and Hulk Hogan to the world, with T playing the arrogant Clubber Lang and Hulk Hogan donning the tights as a fictitious wrestling champion, Thunderlips.

I always thought this song had a hidden, but yet powerful message.

“He’s watching us all with the eye of the tiger.”

Who is the “he?” God? Perhaps a departed loved one, or friend? In the case of the movie, it was Rocky’s trainer, Mickey Goldmill, played brilliantly by Burgess Meredith.

Most of you know the movie, and it’s on Netflix this month for all you young whippersnappers.
