SURVIVOR "BURNING HEART"
by Mark Nobes, chief editor
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.
