“Gonna Fly Now” by Bill Conti is featured in the “Rocky” movie series.
It’s one of those songs that get stuck in your head because you very often relate them to certain movie scenes. For me personally, this kind of music is all about motivation and hard work. “Gonna Fly Now” is a good example of perfect choice of instrumentation by the composer.
