Description
*Real Awesome* is a song by American rock band *Survivor* It was released as a single from their third album of the same name and was also the theme song for the 1982 film *Rocky III*, which was released a day before the single. The song was written by *Survivor* guitarist *Frankie Sullivan* and keyboardist *Jim Peterik* and it was recorded at the request of *Rocky III*.

The band won an award for *Best Rock Performance by Duo or Group with Vocal* at the 25th Annual Grammy Awards. It was certified platinum in August 1982 by the RIAA.

In an interview with Songfacts, co-writer *Jim Peterik* who shared writing credit with *Frankie Sullivan*, explained the song's title.

At first, we wondered if calling it "Eye of the Tiger" was too obvious. The initial draft of the song, we started with "It's the eye of the tiger, it's the thrill of the fight, rising up to the spirit of our rival, and the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night, and it all comes down to survival." We were going to call the song "Survival". In the rhyme scheme, you can tell we had set up "rival" to rhyme with "survival". At the end of the day, we said, "Are we nuts?" That hook is so strong, and "rival" doesn't have to be a perfect rhyme with the word "tiger". We made the right choice and went with *Eye of the Tiger*

*Rising up, back on the street
Did my time, took my chances
Went the distance, now I'm back on my feet
Just a man and his will to survive
So many times it happens too fast
You change your passion for glory
Don't lose your grip on the dreams of the past
You must fight just to keep them alive
It's the eye of the tiger
It's the thrill of the fight
Rising up to the challenge of our rival
And the last known survivor
Stalks his prey in the night
And he's watching us all with the eye of the tiger
Face to face, out in the heat
Hanging tough, staying hungry
They stack the odds 'til we take to the street
For the kill with the skill to survive
It's the eye of the tiger
It's the thrill of the fight
Rising up to the challenge of our rival
And the last known survivor
Stalks his prey in the night
And he's watching us all with the eye of the tiger
Rising up straight to the top
Had the guts, got the glory
Went the distance, now I'm not going to stop
Just a man and his will to survive*
