Final Countdown

My first attempt at a cover song was of Europe’s epic song The Final Countdown, which since I first heard it in 1986, thought had one of the best synth lead melodies ever written.

Produced as a 4-channel chiptune, I remember struggling with both the chords and timing. It didn’t end up as a perfect chip rendition of the original, but being a musically untrained 15-year old when I made it, I think it came out okay.
