One of the interesting aspects of Marjane Satrapi's Persepolis movie is the soundtrack. What everyone noticed in the trailers has been a new take on one of motion picture's most famous music score's that of Sylvestor Stallone's third personification of Rocky Balboa. It was performed in the original film by the Rock Group Survivor and was entitled " The Eye of the Tiger ". In the soundtrack of Persepolis distributed by  DIAPHANA DISTRIBUTION.

The comic parody heard in the movie is on the contrary a sentimental and slow soft beat version performed by Chiara Mastroianni and rearranged by composer Olivier Bernet ( Below the Lyrics):



Risin' up, back on the street
Did my time, took my chances
Went the distance, now I'm back on my feet
Just a man and his will to survive

So many times, it happens too fast
You change your passion for glory
Don't lose your grip on the dreams of the past
You must fight just to keep them alive

It's the eye of the tiger, it's the cream of the fight
Risin' up to the challenge of our rival
And the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night
And he's watchin' us all in the eye of the tiger

Face to face, out in the heat
Hangin' tough, stayin' hungry
They stack the odds 'til we take to the street
For we kill with the skill to survive


Risin' up, straight to the top
Have the guts, got the glory
Went the distance, now I'm not gonna stop
Just a man and his will to survive


The eye of the tiger (repeats out)...



The soundtrack also contains original themes using Persian instruments like the Tar as well as some of dialogue from the film.
