Lanzada en 1986, alcanzó no. 1 en 25 países disfrutando de notable popularidad en conciertos, concentraciones y demás inauguraciones de carácter épico.

Europe, "The Final Countdown"

We're leaving together, But still it's farewell
And maybe we'll come back, To earth, who can tell?
I guess there is no one to blame, We're leaving ground
Will things ever be the same again?

It's the final countdown

We're heading for Venus and still we stand tall
Cause maybe they've seen us and welcome us all
With so many light years to go and things to be found
I'm sure that we'll all miss her so

It's the final countdown
