I love them both, and they were both Oscar nominated top 5 hits. I really can't choose. FYEO is beautiful and GFN is inspirational. What about you guys?

I love both, hard to pick a favorite.

For Your Eyes Only is a gem....but Gonna Fly Now has transcended the medium in every way...and out of the two wins my vote...one of the greatest pieces of music written for film...ever.

Sheena Easton is more pleasing to listen to, so I vote for FYEO.

Neither is really a favourite, to be honest. But I like Conti's score on FYEO -- dated or not!

Gonna Fly Now is my pick of the two.

Ditto, Timmer. For me Gonna Fly Now takes the win.

Same here. I find both as sounding dated. I guess 'Gonna Fly Now' has become the more famous piece. I'm not even sure 'For Your Eyes Only' is a particularly well remembered theme song.

This is pretty much apples and oranges, isn't it?

FOR YOUR EYES ONLY.

I love the Rocky scores to death, but for me Gonna Fly Now was never their primary attraction. I love the all instrumental Rocky theme more.

I have never listened to FYEO so my answer probably doesn't count but I will say the one song that I absolutely get pumped every time I hear it (jogging, driving, relaxing) is not Gonna Fly Now but Going the Distance. What a perfect butt kicking song!
