The Final Countdown – Europe

The new year has started and now that I’m done my detox, I’m going to get back to it: Monday = music that makes me happy!

I recently had a birthday and while last year I turned 30 this year I moved “into my 30s” which just sounds gross to me. If you are in your 50s and about to tell me how I silly I am, don’t. I will lament my 30s if I want to and I do. It’s weird to me that I can make statements like “25 years ago I did mmmmm” and actually have very real memories from that thing I did 25 years ago. It just seems so very long ago.

But I digress…as always…

Twenty-six years ago a Swedish rock band named Europe released a hit single: The Final Countdown. I won’t lie, I LOVE this song.

Instead, though, of posting a video of Europe performing this fabulous song I am introducing you to my favorite cover version complete with a melt-your-face-off electric guitar solo. If you don’t enjoy this then you are dead inside.

A volunteer says: I volunteer at Chako PitBull Advocacy and Rescue in Sacramento, California.  This is Tyson, who is a wonderful, energetic dog who just loves to be with you.  He was adopted twice and was returned both times due to no fault of his own.  The adopters just didn’t want to invest the time or energy to train him.  This is one of my favorite dogs at the rescue and he deserves an active forever family.
