The Eye of the Blogger

HTWB tiger 2It’s blog-aoke time again … this time, using the theme music from that superb Sylvester Stallone movie, Rocky III.

Get ready to sing along to the music of “Eye of the Tiger” … with new lyrics totally appropriate for a corporate environment, because now they’re all about blogging…

To quote Wikipedia:

Eye of the Tiger” is a song by American rock band Survivor. It was released in May 1982 as a single from their third album Eye of the Tiger. It was written at the request of actor Sylvester Stallone, who was unable to get permission for Queen‘s “Another One Bites the Dust“. The song was to be the theme song for the movie Rocky III, in which Stallone was playing the main role.

Survivor, the band who performed it, had a huge success – including a Grammy award – with both the single and the associated album. Having original formed back in 1978, the band is still going strong today. You can check out their current line-up and progress on their official website here.

Now, for the blogging version of the lyrics

As before, click on the video below so you can sing along:

Risin’ up, back in print days
Did my time there on paper
Went the distance in those typewriter ways
Long before blogs were all de rigueur

So many times it happened too fast
Changin’ up from that print is just fine
Don’t lose your grip on your themes of the past
Simply write so they work well online

It’s the Eye of the Blogger, it’s the thrill of being right
Risin’ up to the challenge of being online
And the best known good bloggers get to sleep well at night
‘Cos they know they’re the best in the Eye of the Blogger

Face to face, that’s what you need
Write your blog like a convo
It’s so easy, simply write as you speak
And your bloggin’ is all set to go

It’s the eye of the Blogger, it’s the thrill of being right
Risin’ up to the challenge of being online
And the best known good bloggers get to sleep well at night
‘Cos they know they’re the best in the eye of the Blogger

Risin up, straight to the top
That’s what great blogs are made for
Write good blog posts and just don’t try to stop
Yours are great so just keep on doin’ more

It’s the eye of the Blogger, it’s the thrill of being right
Risin’ up to the challenge of being online
And the best known good bloggers get to sleep well at night
‘Cos they know they’re the best in the eye of the Blogger

The Eye of the Blogger
The Eye of the Blogger
The Eye of the Blogger

Here they are – Survivor in action…
