Iron Eagle's fried chicken aside, give us the 'Road of the Gypsy'
Yesterday we started off the 5th Annual Movie Music Week on Lost and Found with the title song from the deep soundtrack of Iron Eagle. To prove its depth, we feature another song from Iron Eagle with today's offering being Adrenalin and Road Of The Gypsy.
Without a doubt, the most recognized song on the Iron Eagle soundtrack is Queen's One Vision with its blazing riffs by Brian May and the great vocal ending of Freddie Mercury singing "Give me fried chicken." Besides One Vision and Iron Eagle, the soundtrack also featured Adrenalin, the band from the affluent Detroit suburb of Gross Pointe (yes, the same town as the fantastic John Cusack flick Gross Pointe Blanke). The six members of Adrenalin were friends from elementary school and gained their greatest visibility when Road Of The Gypsy appeared on the Iron Eagle soundtrack.
The video for Road Of The Gypsy pales in comparison to King Kobra's Iron Eagle as movie clips dominate the video with occasional glimpses on the band. Although they never made it nationwide, Adrenalin was so well regarded in their home state that in 2015 they were inducted into the Michigan Rock N Roll Legends Hall Of Fame.
