This song was written in 1984, by Joey Tempest, the singer of Europe.

Some more recent work today. From 2012, and I only just discovered it had a link with the European Football Championship (probably because I have no interest in football.). The song is made by a German singer, who included it on the second album. In the song, there is a sample of Mr. Saxobeat, which was a hit in the year before. The song was a hit in Europe, but did not exceed the borders. Enjoy

An old French song today. And yes, it has been used in a commercial, which actually was the first time I heard it. That was a few years ago. The song, however, is much, much older. It was released in 1971, and was his only big success in Europe. He is still active, especially since 1997, when he started writing lots of songs again. After 1971, he had a sort of silent period, writing a lot, but not performing. That’s over, and he’s back. Well, not in the charts, but in the music industry. For today, we have this oldie:
