I just can't choose. So I figure I'd open up the floor. Feel free to try and top these gems.

The Teen Wolf one is awful close but the winner is the one from Karate Kid.

No Easy Way Out wins over You're The Bestt by a hair. The smallest hair ever.

That said, Rocky IV's soundtrack in general blows away Karate Kid's. KK1 had You're The Best & Cruel Summer (which wasn't even on the actual soundtrack they released), that's about it. Rocky IV's was magnificent. No Easy Way Out, Eye of the Tiger, Burning Heart, Living in America, the two awesome DiCola instrumentals, and a few other semi-forgotten gems as well.

Yes, The Rocky IV soundtrack overall definitely beats Karate Kid's.

Holy shit, I actually just watched that movie a couple days ago. Yeah...it doesn't hold up. The movies main flaw is the kid befriends his estranged dad too quick. It's like "I hate you dad!" Then "Hey kid, wanna drive my truck?" Then, "YOU'RE THE BEST DEADBEAT DAD EVAR!"

Has to be "Eye of the Tiger." My college alma mater, the Pacific Tigers, played this before every basketball game!

That's the one I was going to mention. I think it was a law that every high school football team in America during the 80s had to use this song for their highlight video at the end of the season.

No Easy Way Out wins for me, The Rocky 4 soundtrack is easily one of the best ever.

edit- Man I want to have an 80s movie marathon now.

Rocky 4!!!
That training montage is the best thing ever. Cant see the vids cuz I'm at work but Beat Street is also one of my favorites.
My friend told me that Rocky's brother made eye of the tiger for him.

some clips
I always called this the training beat

Dude you posted exactly what I was going to, same song, same soundtrack, same sentiment.

No Easy Way Out wins over You're The Bestt by a hair. The smallest hair ever.

That said, Rocky IV's soundtrack in general blows away Karate Kid's. KK1 had You're The Best & Cruel Summer (which wasn't even on the actual soundtrack they released), that's about it.

As long as it is part of the montage it doesn't matter.

Your post made me think of this spoof of motivational songs from 80s movies:

In terms of spoof you can't really top Turn and Smile
