Awesome Old Song of the Week: "The Glory of Love" by Peter Cetera

Sticking with my Karate Kid theme from last week (because why not?), Peter Cetera's contribution to the The Karate Kid, Part II soundtrack was a Billboard #1 hit in the summer of 1986.

At the end of the movie Daniel gets caught up in a fight to the death with Sato's nephew, the kid with no honor.  Miyagi helps guide his student to victory (although no murder takes place; imagine if Daniel had killed the guy like he was supposed to?  That would have been a surprising turn of events...) by playing a little toy drum.  Supposedly the drum held the secret to karate passed down through generations of Miyagi's family in Okinawa.

I got one of those drums as a souvenir on a family vacation to Puerto Rico, which at the time made perfect sense to me.
