DEF: Europe “The Final Countdown”
Stockholm-based band Europe made five appearances on Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart, all between 1987 and 1988, with four of those songs reaching the Top 40. The band’s chart run began with the song that, while not their biggest hit, is their most well-known song. Exactly 30 years ago, that song — “The Final Countdown” — climbed to a peak position of number 8. To commemorate that anniversary, “The Final Countdown” by Europe is today’s Daily Eighties Flashback.
