DLC Week of 10/05: Asia and Survivor!
Start October off right with these two '80s hits from Asia and Survivor!
Asia – the prog rock super group consisting of members of Yes and King Crimson – released their debut single “Heat of the Moment” in 1982. An instant hit, the song spent 6 weeks at #1 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart and was one of the biggest singles of the year. But thanks to its frequent use in TV & films, the song's popularity didn’t end there, and it's still one of the top tracks played on classic rock radio. The song opens with the epic main guitar phrase of distorted power chords. When the vocals kick in, the guitar creates a syncopated feel against the vocal melody and drum beat. Everything builds up to the release of the chorus, where the tempo picks up and the harmonies kick in. Each part will keep you moving.
Another chart-topper from 1982 is “Eye of the Tiger” by Survivor, a song that is no stranger to Rock Band, having previously been featured on the Rock Band 2 disc. The song has been featured in dozens of films, TV shows, sporting events, and has topped countless charts worldwide. Its impact on pop culture is timeless and iconic. All parts get their knockout moment in this song. Keep your eye on the end of the choruses, there is a collective run of eighth and sixteenth notes that will be tough. Playing this song will pump you up for anything!
Songs can be purchased individually for $1.99 each. The Rock Band Rivals Season 2 Spotlight Pass can be purchased for $13.49.
