Day 18- A song from the year that you were born
“The Final Countdown” / Europe (1986)
There is no other song released in 1986 as amazing as “The Final Countdown”. I don’t care what VH1 and their stupid countdown of worst songs has to say. Have they ever heard this piece of magic? It played at my wedding when I entered my reception and is the ringtone on my mom’s phone when I call. It’s kind of my official theme song.
Speaking of theme songs, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention G.O.B. Bluth in this post. I can’t think of a stronger association between a television character and song. Or a song and magic. Before I see any illusions, I fully expect to hear “The Final Countdown”.
