Sylvester Stallone called upon Survivor to write the theme song for Rock III after Queen denied him permission to use “Another One Bites The Dust”. The result was “Eye Of The Tiger” an epic, anthemic tune that would go on to earn its own legendary status.
Can you think of any other songs that were written to emulate another famous tune and went on to enjoy a similar level of success? Let me know in the comments!
