Heart of a Lion, Judas Priest

For this Metal Friday, an obscure song by Judas Priest that nevertheless kicks some serious ass.

"Heart of a Lion" was supposed to appear on Turbo, but did not fit the album and so Rob Halford offered the song to the band Racer X, who parlayed it into a minor hit. Racer X admittedly do a nice version, but it doesn't compare to peak Halford wailing the chorus.

On Fridays at least I have the Heart of a Lion.

Listen and enjoy. And have a very metal weekend.
