It’s The Final Countdown…

Here in India, there are many diverse kinds of music – from Bollywood hits to classical Indian music to top hits from around the world. However, there is one song that stands out among the rest – “The Final Countdown” by Europe.

The magnum opus of the hair rock group Europe, this song has long been a staple at sporting events around the globe. This particular song seems to hold an honored spot here in India – I hear it at least 3 times per week, if not more. On the radio, in bars, in the bowling alley, on “DJ Night” on campus – you can’t escape the towering synthesizers and monster guitars.

In honor of this special song, I’ve dug up the music video – enjoy a little trip down memory lane (or in my case, every day life). Be sure to avoid inhaling too much hairspray.

    That is scary, although amusing (the video). The lead singer looks like a crossdresser! I don’t think the Indians would approve if they saw the video 😉

  2. it is not the most popular one outside but of course it one of the most popular ones inside the Infosys campus.

  3. Whenever I hear that song I think of G.O.B. from Arrested Development and his “illusions.” It makes me smile.
