    I prefer the work Stallone did with Sly and the family stone. Although I'm not a great fan of his movies. What do you think was the best song he's ever done?

    The best song in a Stallone movie is "Eye of The Tiger", hands down. I mean, come on.

    However, you may be referring to Frank Stallone. In which case I must declare "Frank Stallone" only a slight runner up to the best debut album of 1984.

    Be honest. This song could easily have been an early Smiths b-side:

    Take you back
    do do do do
    take you back
    take you back
    do do do do
    take you back
    i don't know why i should even try
    to take you back
    take you back in my life
    you say there's a reason
    that you can't live without my love

    Push me back
    you push me just too far
    you never stop
    you are what you are
    you lie and you hurt me
    when you do the things you do

    Now the nights are forever
    all the low lie together
    no one else will it matter
    theres nothin you can say or do
    change my mind of you with you...

    Don't put me down no more
    heres walkin out the door
    you know that i love you
    but i can't be a fool no more....
    i need someone in my life...

    Now the nights are forever
    all the low lie together
    no one else will it matter
    theres nothin you can say or do
    change of you with you..
    yeah yeah yeah

    Sly Stones best song might be If You Want Me To Stay, but possibly Somebody's Watching You or I Wanna Take You Higher. Sly Stallone has no good movies or songs and is most famous for appearing in the Andy Warhol Diaries supporting Bianca Jagger.

    Dave, Dave, Dave. I'm looking at that wonderful picture of Ozzy and just have to ask: you didn't like Sly's run of campy action films in the 1980s? What about "Rocky"? At least "Rocky".

    And if not, well, no worries, you might still love his paintings.

    There was probably something there that I have forgotten, to be fair. He gave us Bridgette Nielsen [​IMG] anyway. I mean, way before the Flavor Flav thing she was sort of cool.

    Sez Sly, from Aint It Cool News:

    "The reason ROCKY IV seems a little disjointed is because I was having a conflict with [composer] Bill Conti at the time and decided to go in a different direction, which I’m sorry for. Also, I think the whole premise of the film was based too much on “the fight” and not the personal struggles that preceded the fight. If I had to do it all over again, I would’ve hired Bill Conti, married Ivan Drago and punched out Brigitte Nielsen."

    Well...the song is in every Rocky movie in some form...just like Frank Stallone. All he had to do was Google the lyrics...
