Final Countdown by Europe

This is one of my favourite songs. I like it because its music is fantastic and makes you want to dance. I like the lyrics too. They talk about the final countdown before a great adventure or a big victory and this is why the song has always been a symbol of victory and team effort. Enjoy it!

Love,

Mrs Sophia

Hello,

I love this song too. I think it's very old, maybe it was written 20 years ago.

The song is very old but it's one of the most famous songs. I listen it on a show on TV. It reminds me when I won at swimming because I always listens it after the match.

Hi all,

thank you so much for your kind comments. For those asking, the song was first released in 1986. The band is called Europe and they are from Sweden. It's wonderful how an old song like this appeals to young people your age. But then again, a good song will always be a good song no matter its age. What do you think? Do you think a song must be new to like it?

Best wishes,

Mrs Sophia
