Weighted Spatial Join

I'm trying to do a one-to-one spatial join between 2 polygons, but because there are multiple polygons in the source layer that are overlaying my target layer, it's assigning attributes to the target layer that are a low percentage of what is actually being covered.  For example, if 3 polygons are overlaying one, and those 3 polygons take up, respectively, 75%, 12%, and 13% of the one polygon, how can I get the final layer to take the attributes of the majority overlay....the attributes of the polygon that covers 75% of the land as opposed to the one that covers 12%?  I cannot figure out how to do this.....hope it even makes sense.  Thanks!  JT
