Awesome Old Song of the Week: "You're the Best" by Joe Esposito

From maybe the greatest sports movie montage of all-time, this song needs no introduction.  One thing I've just discovered is that "You're the Best" was originally intended for Rocky III, but got turned down in favor of "Eye of the Tiger."  It was then subsequently rejected by Flashdance as well, which opted for "Maniac" instead.  It's a good thing those other two films passed, because Daniel Larusso never would have been able to get to the finals of the All-Valley Tournament without it.

I think I went as the Karate Kid for every single Halloween from 1984-1987.
