looking for the song "don't make me dream alone"
1 July 2007 | by See all my reviews

can anyone help me find the song, that was sung at the end of the show, Don't make me dream alone, I've looked on the internet and cant find any song by that name,, i am looking for the lyrics,, but have been unable to find them, as far as the movie goes i really liked it, but then again i am a big rocky fan, i love boxing and loved the singing in the show. i have also looked for the song on lime wire and still nothing, its almost like it really don't exist. but it does. I want to thank every one for letting me make this post i know I'm not good at it, but its really nice to be able to tell others how u do or don't like a film, and to be able to ask questions about it.
