    Default "Winner takes it all" fact

    "Winner takes it all" from "Over the top" was actually recorded by Asias John Wetton, but Sylvester Stallone felt it was'nt "tough" enough for the soundtrack, so he offered it to Sammy Hagar. Sammy took the offer imediately, and even though Georgio Moroder wrote it, Eddie played bass on it. I gotta say, its a great video clip too. I love Slys face when he and Sammy are armwrestling and Sammy looks like getting the better of him.

    A song written by Asia wasn't "tough enough" for a Stallone flick? You don't say.

    It was'nt written by Asia or John Wetton, as I specified in my post. It was by Georgio Moroder.

    Ok, let me rephrase that. A song recorded by Asia wasn't "tough enough" for a Stallone flick? Shocking.

    Hey give John Wetton a break people. It was the best he could do in the HEAT OF THE MOMENT.

    Thankyou, thankyou, I'll be here all week, try the veal.

    It would've been a great live VH tune, despite the poppyness of the lyrics.
