The Final Countdown, Final Day

by Joey deVilla on April 22, 2011

And here we are: Friday, April 22nd, 2011, my last official day at Microsoft and also the last day of my week of tributes featuring videos of various versions of Europe’s big ‘80’s hair-metal hit, The Final Countdown.

For this last installment, how could I go with anything other than an accordion version? I would’ve loved to have recorded my own, but I’m a little too short time – the next fortnight promises to be a busy one rife with king-sized changes galore – so I’m leaving it to the UK’s Jimmy Blair Accordion Orchestra to give us the final Final Countdown. You will believe that this song was meant for accordion.
