...oh, Gob. To me, this used to be just a novelty song from years afore, but was greatly brought to popularity as being Gob's theme song from Arrested Development.

I'm sure the rest of Europe's music is good, but I only downloaded this song to bring to memory Gob's introduction at optical illusion shows.

Yeah, it's cheesy. Yeah, it's 80's. Yeah, it totally rocks. How can you not want to stand on the top of a speeding car with your arms held to the sky while listening to the only good song Europe has ever produced? Plus GOB Bluth in a pirate shirt with a dagger in his mouth is pretty awesome...

I love the music of the '80s... but somehow I was blissfully unaware of this song's existence until I stumbled upon it in a list from Cracked -- "The Most Terrifyingly Epic Songs of the '80s." I had heard most of the songs on the list, but had somehow overlooked this one entirely. Cracked has a sketchy record when it comes to recommendations, in my opinion, but given that I loved most of the other songs on this particular list ("Eye of the Tiger," "Don't Stop Believing," "Holding Out for a Hero," "Love is a Battlefield," etc.), I decided I had to give this one a listen.

I'll just say... if you're an unabashed fan of cheesy '80s poodle-hair rock, you will love this song. :D

There's nothing subtle whatsoever about this song. From the triumphant and soaring synthesizer opening to the epic guitar and drum riffs, this song's instrumentation is the epitome of goofy '80s rock. The lyrics, while simple, are also rather nonsensical, seeming to hint toward a group of astronauts leaving Earth but otherwise defying easy explanation. And the lead singer's voice is nothing to write home about, though at least he actually tries to carry the tune and doesn't just yell into the microphone.

And yet somehow, this all WORKS. It's a goofy song, yes, but it's the kind of goofy that leaves a huge smile on your face. It's a song that's completely over-the-top but in the best possible way, and you can't help but want to bang your head and sing along when it comes on. I haven't listened to anything else by Europe -- and from what I understand this is their only real hit -- but they sure hit a home run with this number.

This song has found plenty of new fans thanks to "Arrested Development," but even if you've never seen that show, it's almost impossible not to like this song. It's not the greatest hit of the '80s, but it sure is one of the most fun... and yes, one of the most terrifyingly epic.

I've... seen things you people wouldn't believe...

Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate.

All those... moments... will be lost in time, like tears... in... rain. Time... to die...

This song sticks in your head. My kids recently discovered it due to some internet meme going around in their age group. I said, oh yeah, I know that song and started singing it for them. They were suitably embarrassed - sometimes parenting is so much fun!~

We were looking for this song to put on a basketball pre-game warmup CD and were able to find it here. I was hoping the volume would have been a little higher to match the volume of the other songs we have for the CD.

good and clear, works well from my phone to my component stereo system. Plus it's stored in Amazon's cloud for me now too- so I can access it if I accidentally delete my local copies.
