This week I bring you "Gonna Fly Now," the theme song from the movie Rocky, which topped the Billboard Singles Chart this week in 1977. The song became part of American popular culture after main character, Rocky Balboa, as part of his daily training regimen, runs up the 72 stone steps leading to the entrance of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
