""Eye of the Tiger",REALLY,brings a(rare)smile to my(oft-sullen)face!! This occurs,when I APPLY,its' inspiring lyrics to my life.."Went the distance"(In my"bout"with the"Grim Reaper",following a MASSIVE stroke,and ensuing brain surgeries!!)"now I'm BACK on my feet"(Defying the Neurosurgeons who said,I'd NEVER walk again,even IF,I(somehow)managed to avoid existing in a vegative state,for the rest of my life)"just a man,and his WILL,to survive"(My INDOMITABLE will(coupled with the AWESOME,"healing virtue" of JESUS)enabled me to(twice)walk 18 MILES,clear through Detroit(while legally BLIND)into surrounding communities,with NO problems whatsoever,less than two years after awakening in the O.R.to the bleak prognosis,that I'd never be able to take a single STEP again!!Yet,I walked(at a speed of 3 m.p.h)for(slightly over)an INCREDIBLE,TWENTY-THREE consecutive HOURS,when the SuperBowl came to Detroit,some years back!! "Rising up,to the challenge,of our rivals"(As a "child"of the"MOST-HIGH GOD"my "rivals" are doubt,fear and bad-reports from the worlds'"experts")I've already ROUTED,the(feeble)"challenges"of two of my rivals:"Fear"(by getting out of my bed,heading out the front door and taking my first(post-stroke)walk through my neighborhood..)and"Bad Report"(when I,after being told that my days of lifting weights,were FINISHED,bench pressed 90 pounds:ONE HUNDRED consecutive times(with partial paralysis on my left side!!)and I'm STEELING my mind,to rise up,and meet the challenge that"Doubt"presents!! This encouraging song,helps me out IMMENSELY!! I can't believe that I'd just about,totally forgotten this song(with my decimated memory)but when I heard it again,I was OVERWHELMED,with JOY and INSPIRATION!! This ENTIRE albun,is both,Timeless AND Priceless!!Admitedly,I had no idea that Survivor made so MANY,other quality songs!! However"Eye" transcends,merely being a"song" to me...It's been my lifes' THEME,for the last 5 years!! And buying this album,was the BEST purchase,that I've made in the last TEN years!!!"
