From our old friend Andrew of Songs To Wear Pants To, came the album The Final Countdow: A series of covers to an original song of the same title release by Europe in 1986. There are 7 versions in total, each using a different style of music, and most better or at least just as good as the original in my opinion.

What made this so interesting (even more than the songs themselves which are always awesome), was how Andrew released them. Each of the 7 covers was released in the week leading up to “doomsday,” with the final track coming out on the day (if we lived).

So I got to countdown to amazing music! What a nice way to sign off the planet 😛 You can buy the album here for just $5.
