I love TOO CLOSE TO PARADISE, but I think his brother Frank should have sung it.

Sly was finished by 1976. He sadly could never get his career restarted.

Drugs are bad for you, kids.

Related, kinda, is a new documentary called "Stallone: Frank, that is..."

Its all about Frank and his career. I haven't seen the film but the trailer looks pretty good.

Yes, I'm also curious why Frank didn't do "Long Road". Perhaps Sly didn't have the clout to get him hired at that point. As for Sly's own singing, that's better left alone, I think. smile

In fairness he has a much better voice than Rod Stewart or Bryan Adams!

They should have got Arnold to sign it...





Both equally terrible. At least Arnold is really funny.

Must say I've never been fond of the RAMBO songs. Nepotism is the only possible explanation for Stallone opting to use to "Peace in Our Life" (a well-intentioned but incredibly cornball song) instead of Goldsmith's cue, which was probably his most spectacular "End Title" ever (except for THE SWARM maybe). "It's a Long Road" is a nice enough song (mostly on the strength of its melody!), although it is somewhat ironic that Dan Hill, with his unmistakably Canadian timbre, was chosen to sing it, given that the plight of Rambo (being an abused, frightened, lonely Vietnam vet) is something indigenous to the United States.

I agree with the other RAMBO songs, but disagree with you in terms of "It's a Long Road". His soulful, aching singing, alongside the autumny, melancholic melody line of Goldsmith's theme (along with the lonely trumpet) is the perfect encapsulation of the trauma of disenfranchised war vets. It has no significance where the singer was born.

I agree he did a fine job and obviously where he's from has no bearing on his ability to sing the song. I just think it's odd that Sly didn't tap his brother to sing it, as he did with STAYING ALIVE and FIRST BLOOD PART II. He seemed to have creative control over every other element of the film, going as far as changing the novel's ending. May have been a matter licensing or scheduling, IDK.

I agree PEACE IN OUR LIFE is corny, but I like it. I also think TOO CLOSE TO PARADISE is a great song, just not the vocals.
