Europe: The Final Countdown
The Swedish rock band released the song written by Joey Tempest in 1986, including it in the homonymous album. Although it didn’t manage to get to the very top spot in the American charts, it hit the top spot in many other countries including the UK.
Although it wasn’t even planned to be released as a single, but rather used as an opening song in concerts and anyway in a secondary way, it became the signature song of the group and the most successful from the album which was their third.
The song became also one of the favourites at sporting events.
