We gave it a B

Aside from some funky scatting and a dash of hip-hop rhythm, the soul slickster doesn’t add much to Steve Miller’s ’70s classic-rock classic. Seal does get points for good taste in cover material, though: The song’s ethereal synthesizer squiggles, wah-wah guitars, and soaring chorus sound great in the ’90s. The latest fast break on the charts from the Space Jam soundtrack, “Fly Like an Eagle” is perfect music for Michael Jordan to slam to.
