Eye of the Tiger

I've just hear the most brilliant cover ever! I was browsing around for music in Spotify and came across a title I knew well,Eye Of The Tiger. But the artist was a big surprise: Paul Anka. He has made an album called Rock Swings which contains some surprising covers. And his version of Eye of the Tiger sounds nothing like the original, it's a big band swing version. The only thing left from the original is the lyrics, it has none of that pumping electric guitar. Yet I couldn't help laugh when I heard it, barely recognizing the original behind the cover.

Hey Joel. I'm a former concurrent programming student of yours. I thought that you'd find Richard Cheese funny too.
