It features the title track, which is the theme song of the film Rocky III. The single went to #1 in both the US[1] and UK,[2] while "American Heartbeat" reached #17 in the US.[1] Both singles also made the charts in Germany.[3]

Following the temporary disbandment of Survivor in 1989, Jimi Jamison recorded a cover of "Ever Since the World Began" for the film Lock Up.[4]
