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.
