You just can't help but love the 80s Arena rock sound can you?
Released in November 1985, Burning Heart reached #2 in the U.S. and #5 in the UK and featured on the Rocky IV soundtrack. With its Cold War inspired lyrics about the battle between East and West, the song was highly suitable for a movie about a Boxing match between Rocky (played by Sylvester Stallone) and Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren). The movie was written and directed by Stallone himself.
Burning Heart was Survivor's seventh Top 40 hit single in the U.S. and the second and last Top 40 hit in the UK. The band's most well-known and most successful song is, of course, Eye Of The Tiger (from the previous movie Rocky III) which spent six weeks at number in the U.S. The song also reached #1 in the UK .
