Best Survivor Songs


The Top Ten

1 Eye of the Tiger Eye of the Tiger


Hell yeah man, this song is the best inspirational song ever made. Thanks & regards to survivor.

This is definitely the MOST awesome song on the face of the Earth. This song used to be my favorite already... But recently when my crush sang it with me TWICE already... I knew this song would mean more to me than anything else.

When I listen to this song it gives me the power to beat my enemies! The best song of the survivors! I listen to it everyday. This song is the "King of Kings"!

2 I Can't Hold Back I Can't Hold Back

I have to get this beautiful song. - BloDayBey

Amazing song... Makes me cry because it makes me think of the gal whom I loved...

Amazing Amazing Song Love This One Great Tune Great Guitar Solo Great Bass Great Drumming And Great Singing - mneilan

3 Burning Heart Burning Heart

Good theme, I really it!

This song is great, even though it was made for a soundtrack. (then again, it is Rocky, so... What can you expect? Amazing movie, by the way. ). What more can I say?

It's simply the evergreen pathfinder for the soul seekers expedition. Superb summit of great inspiration and dedicated professionalism in a never

One of the most inspirational songs I've ever heard I love survivor there great
Every time listen it makes me think of dreams I have I love this so much it is amazing

4 The Search is Over

A career defining performance from the late Jimi Jamison... A truly beautiful song!

Just listen to the words. It speaks for itself

Love this song

5 High On You

This is one of a few songs that always manages to put me in a bubbly mood whenever I hear it. It has a special power over me in that way.

Most people probably have no clue Survivor sings this song and they rock out to it everyday on the radio. That's the kind of song it is. Everyone knows it, no one knows who sings it, the mark of a truly great song because it doesn't matter about band allegiance, it's left all up to the music!

This is my all time favorite song ever

Great song please vote up higher please love it

6 Man Against the World

This may be the saddest song in the world; I cried the first time I heard it. But yet, this is the magic of Survivor that makes it an amazing. Vote this up, it shouldn't be at 13!

I did the math; this is Survivor's best song. Not kidding.

Also, this might be the saddest song in the world. It's a shame it's not high than 14.

This is their third best song... what is it doing at 14? Please vote this up.

Its ons of the most stad And yet beautiful songs on the planet please vote this up!

7 Even Since the World Began

A truly amazing and poetic song from an awesome Sylvester Stallone film, Lock Up!

I've been listening to the song since I was a kid, and it still inspires me even to these day..talks about lifes mystery...a very good song..

This mus be at least in the top 3 or five, great song

8 Is This Love

This song, along with Burning Heart and Eye Of The Tiger are the top 3 Survivor songs, this song makes me want to cry. Ong Live Rocky and Survivor! 1

After I heard this song I started crying RIP J.J/ Jimi Jamison.

I don't know, Is this love?

9 Broken Promises

Best song ever released by the band. Hard to pick one because they had so many. This one, though, is not just a more simplistic love song. It speaks both philosophically about sociologically about life and relationships. It also has clever lyrics, and along with the music, creates both joy and melancholy... Absolute gem.

10 Didn't Know It Was Love

The best song from their best album -Too Hot To Sleep. Can't believe it hasn't even made the Top 10!

Really reminds me of my ex... 😢

The Contenders

11 Poor Man's Son
12 American Heartbeat

Great Tune, great instrumental sound and lovely vocals

This song should be number 5 or 6 not 7 please vote this one up great singing guitar bass and drums

This song makes me feel like running in the streets @ 1:00 in the morning it's the only way I feel like I'm in the 80s!

This song should be in the top ten - mneilan

13 Can't Let You Go

Should be in top 10, one of their not known songs, but when you listen to it, it really brings the rock theme back into it, and it's so catchy, it's my 3rd or 4th favorite from survivor behind I can't hold back and man against the world

14 The Moment of Truth

Should be in top ten

15 Oceans
16 Children of the Night
17 Feels Like Love

Criminally underrated!
There’s just such an energy to it. Wish more people knew about songs like this

18 Popular Girl
19 I See You In Everyone

Listen, Just because Eye of the Tiger is their most popular song doesn't make it the best. The entire Vital Signs album is just flawless, but this song takes the cake.

Great Survivor era Song!

One of nicest songs by survivor...
Makes me feel happy

20 Burning Bridges

One of the most under-rated songs of all time, one of Survivor's best.

21 Hungry Years
22 First Night
23 You Know Who You Are

Should be @ #1

24 Caught in the Game

Hands down the best they ever did

This should be #1

25 I Never Stopped Loving You
26 Rebel Son

Wow... Just wow...
This song is so inspirational, even more than the songs played in the Rocky movies. I get goosebumps every time I listen to it, it's just that good. Of course, every Survivor song is pretty damn amazing in it's own way, but Rebel Son, in my opinion, trumps them all.

This song is amazing :)
One of the best songs by survivor ever.

27 Desperate Dreams

Wow! What's wrong with you guys...classic survivor, catchy as hell and not even here, TOP TEN for sure.

28 I'm Not That Man Anymore

Come on guys, the live performance from Tokyo, 1985, with Jimi on vocals is unbelievable.

29 Santa Ana Winds

Like this song better every time I listen to it

Second only to Eye of the Tiger

Should get aor radio airplay

Jim Peterik's piano,Frankie Sullivan's guitar,Marc Droubay's distinctive drum sound,Dave Bickler's vocals, doesn't get much better than this one
