The Final Countdown" by the Swedish rock band Europe. was first released as a single in 1986 from the band's third studio album, The Final Countdown. The song reached No. 1 in 25 countries, including the United Kingdom. In the United States the song peaked at No. 8 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The single was certified Gold in the United Kingdom in 1986.The song was based on an old keyboard riff that vocalist Joey Tempest had written as early as 1981–82 and In 1985, bassist John Levén suggested that Tempest should write a song based on that riff., which he did and recorded a demo version for the other band members to listen to which in turn received mixed reactions but Tempest fought hard for iy to be used.. Guitarist John Norum said “When I first heard the synth intro ‘my reaction was: 'No, this is nuts. We just can't use this,'", "Thank God they didn't listen to me”. The song's lyrics were inspired by David Bowie's song "Space Oddity".
