I would say that my list is exactly the same, but I will also add Measure Of A Man (from Rocky V) and Ever Since The World Began (from Lock Up).

Gonna Fly Now and It's A Long Road are the two that immediately sprung to mind, plus I have a soft spot for Hearts On Fire (with the DiCola insert) and Peace In Our Life.

There was a song for the end credits of Lockup that I'm sure used Conti's melodies. Mysteriously it was never on the CD.
It was pretty cool from memory.

So, no good songs from Stallone movies the last 20 years?

I guess it says a lot about modern pop music...

Angel in the City from Cobra is another great tune,
and I actually liked Dredd Song by the Cure from Judge Dredd too

    Does anyone have a list of all the songs?

    "It's a Long Road" is probably my favourite of those mentioned so far.

    Nope. You just have to slide through the "soundtracks" section of Stallone's imdb credits...

    I see. Bit of a job to research, then.

    Well, shout-outs to these, then:

    "Gonna Fly Now" from ROCKY
    "Brown Sugar" from NIGHTHAWKS
    "Eye of the Tiger" from ROCKY III
    "It's a Long Road" from FIRST BLOOD (my favourite)
    "Stayin' Alive" from STAYING ALIVE
    "Hearts on Fire" and "No Easy Way Out" from ROCKY IV
    "Take it Higher" from OVER THE TOP
    "Don't Go" from TANGO & CASH
    "The Measure of a Man" from ROCKY V (written by Alan Menken and performed by Elton John, imagine that!)
    "Demolition Man" from DEMOLITION MAN
    "Release the Pressure" from JUDGE DREDD
    "Can't Take My Eyes Off of You" from COP LAND
    "Descent" from GET CARTER (although not a song, strictly speaking)
    "Highroller", "Out of Control" and many more from DRIVE
    "Keep on Chooglin" and "Born on the Bayou" from THE EXPENDABLES
    "Mustang Sally" from THE EXPENDABLES 2
    "War" from GRUDGE MATCH
    "Mr. Blue Sky" from GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

    There was no mention in the original post that these were supposed to be original songs written for the films; hence the mix of both.

    Not "Two Into One" from COBRA?

    Nah. Rather maudlin stuff, IMO.

    What about Peace in our Life by Frank Stallone? That’s my favorite.

    I always have a dream, that Barry recorded vocal version of "Did you Call Me".
    At least, after locating 3 (!!!) vocal versions for "The Day of the Locust Theme", about which we never heard, before Intrada released their CD, I can believe, that something could be recorded.
    But as it's Sony Music - we probably will not solve this mystery in near time...

    When I read the title of the thread; I instantly thought to myself:

    MEET ME HALFWAY
    ...by Kenny Loggins - from "Over The Top"

    And then I noticed that it was the first song mentioned!
    So I guess; that - "Meet Me Halfway" - is the best!

    Honourable mention: "Peace In Our Life" - from "Rambo: First Blood - Part II".

    "Peace in Our Life" is pure cheeseballs. Nowhere near the beautiful, melancholic song that is "It's a Long Road".

    I like how Levay's style shines through, like in the distant synth bass after 40 seconds. Would have loved an instrumental version. Carmen Twillie also sings wordless vocals on Zimmer's PACIFIC HEIGHTS, by the way.
