About the song

Written by Joey Tempest.
Arranged by John Higgins.
Originally recorded by Europe.

Instrumentation requirements

This song is usually played very loudly, so the more musicians, the better.
Like almost every pepband song, this song needs a strong trumpet section.


Starts with a measure of snare.
Played as written, but typically one or more people will scream the "countdown" in the intro section. Count down from 10, one number for every two beats, starting on beat one of measure 9.
