Whether it’s nostalgia a yearning to go back to the days of being a child I am not entirely sure but Rocky IV has resolutely stayed with me since the day my mum took me to see it as a six year old back in 1985 . God knows how many times I have watched it! Back in the day I literally wore out the treasured VHS and whenever it’s shown on an itv channel I end up watching it . The movie like the soundtrack is pure bombast and I challenge anyone not feel a burst of utter joy at hearing Hearts On Fire , Burning Heart and my particular favourite There’s No Easy Way Out . These particular songs are infused with an ultimate pumped up adrenalin that hit you viscerally , the epitome of eighties power ballads souped up on steroids lol .These are songs that make me want to lift up my potato sack body off the sofa , run up a flight of stairs , thrust my fists into the air .Forget the parameters of cool this is undiluted inspiring pop of the highest order . As a souvenir of a particular era this Rocky IV soundtrack is indispensable no matter how time moves on , how old I get Stallone and Rocky IV will always have a place in my heart. Got There’s No Way Out absolutely blaring , did anyone master the montage better then Stallone god bless him .I actually feel tears lol so go back in time , forget your troubles get inspired and purchase the Rocky IV soundtrack now !!!
