Highlight of my pandora
Awesome
I got so excited when I heard the song I stubbed my toe on my couch and tripped while yelling it's the FINAL COUNT DOWN
Love this song so much. So popular at school. In band when it is time to pack up our instruments this is the song some kids play. Saying it's the final count down it kind of scares me making me think that the world is about to end, ever thought about it like that but that is what makes this song so good besides the trumpet solo, that part is truly the best
True song. Bees are dying since 1980
Awesome montage song

the last of a few gases spew in haze as unphantomed engines slowly start their scream and we look out port holes just to gage our fall from this worlds grace sighting out beyond stars never dwelling on past scars out there some where my life awaits as this one closes being our fate perhaps a new beginning lies out in deep space replaceing the end we now face the roar of thrusters carry us fourth and blast all earths sound and in its increasing force we know this is the final count down..4.3.2. 1 .
all count downs are final as the twighlight of a last erra dwindles and closes to bring the new milleniea of the future and every one looks to there possible beginning as the past dies for each decade to give birth to dreams of changing there old life for a new and maybe even a new world in the not so distant future when this one draws its last breath
One of the classics. I guess none of these countdowns are really final, considering that this song will continue to be played for ages to come.

ha.. used to love playing this on a keyboard.. 80s forever!
We miss you when the music was good and wasn't made on a computer goodbye 70s-80s��
Their only good album
Best song ever
Also u cant stand on venus so why head to it. Its a razor brand also!!!
This song reminds me of Jobe from arrested development
Always felt the mix could have had more prominent rhythm guitars. The keys overpower everything. Still in all one of those songs that will be played forever.
OtakuSoph1: they all will miss earth
Best song ever
I love this song
MY CHILDHOOD HELLO

This song reminds me of the movie R.I.P.D
The riff was nearly unused because the keyboardist didn't like it.
Wooooo
