The Final Countdown (w/ Mic Michaeli of Europe) - Season 7 Finale, Episode 720

The Final Countdown (w/ Mic Michaeli of Europe) - Season 7 Finale, Episode 720

Season 7 draws to an epic close as we cover the most well-known synth riff of the 1980's and chat with the man who played it--that's right, it's The Final Countdown, the smash hit by Europe! We'll cover it in depth (and a truly, uh, amazing cover), and have the usual fun, and then chat with keyboardist Mic Michaeli about this slammin' synth part and the legacy of a song that's been awesome, not cool, and awesome again.


Season 7 is over, but if you help us share the show you can unlock a BONUS EPISODE-- PLUS there's one more week to be entered to win an autographed copy of the new Mammoth WVH record by Wolfgang Van Halen! Just share the show or join us on Patreon and you're automatically entered to win.
