'Karate Kid' songwriter furious after Donald Trump uses 'You're the Best' during campaign BY Meg Wagner NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Updated: Wednesday, August 26, 2015, 6:37 AM The songwriter behind “You’re the Best,” the smash hit from 1984’s “The Karate Kid,” isn’t happy that Donald Trump is using the adrenaline-pumping tune in his campaign. “This guy’s mouth would get us into a nuclear war in three seconds,” Allee Willis told the Daily News Tuesday. “He is opposite of everything I stand for," she continued. "So I’m not happy that it’s promoting someone who treats people the way he treats people.” Trump blasted the song — which is sung by Joe Esposito and was featured during the movie’s tournament fight montage — at an Aug. 11 campaign stop in suburban Detroit. But while Willis said she doesn’t support Trump’s use of her iconic song, she said she can’t do anything about it. She originally co-wrote the tune with fellow composer Bill Conti for 1982’s “Rocky III," but the filmmakers scrapped the song the last minute, replacing it with Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger.” Two years later it wound up in “The Karate Kid,” but the “Rocky III” studio likely still has the rights, Willis said. “I do not endorse this, but I don’t control the rights to this song,” she said. “I don’t even know if Trump ever tried to get rights to this song or if he just used it without permission.” Imeh Akpanudosen/Getty Images for the "Detroit Cr Willis isn't happy that Donald Trump is using her song 'You're the Best' in his campaign. A spokesperson for MGM, which distributed “Rocky III,” said the company does not own the rights to the song. It is not clear if Trump licensed the song through the studio. Willis doesn’t support the boisterous billionaire’s presidential bid — but she does think the “bombastic” song fits his personality. “Do I think it fits Trump perfectly? Without a question,” she told the Daily News. “It’s all about bravado and fighting. And Trump is the giant who comes and stomps on the village. I can see why he picked it.” Willis — who also co-wrote the “Friends” theme song and the 2005 Broadway musical “The Color Purple” — doesn’t consider the tune to be one of her best works. “I didn’t think it was a great song. It’s a very bombastic song,” she said. “But that was the whole purpose of us writing it. It was supposed to be Rocky triumphing in the fight.” While she’d prefer Trump lay off her hits, Willis said there is at least one candidate she’d let into her music library. “I wouldn’t mind if Hillary used my songs,” she said.
