Sylvester Stallone has decided his movie masterpiece Rocky should be a musical.
Yes, a musical.
Rocky is going to become a song and dance routine, but maybe it’s not that bad of an idea? There are some catchy songs from at least two of the movies. There the theme “Gonna Fly Now” and in Rocky III there was “Eye of the Tiger”.
However, those two songs are not enough. I’ve been thinking about scenes from the Rocky movies and so far I haven’t come up with much. Remember when he’s drinking the raw eggs as part of his training? Perhaps that could become a song. How the scene where Rocky wants his trainer, Mick to cut his eye because it's swollen shut?
Maybe there could be a whole song based on Mr. T’s phrase “I pity the fool!”
I wish Sly luck. The musical is going to open in Germany and maybe it will really become a hit. After all, no one expect the original Rocky movie to be a champion.
