I woke up early today and put on my finest eighties gear. I'm talking headbands, wrist bands, high socks, a Gizmo shirt and Jordache jeans. Why the 80's nostalgia? Because one of my favorite food flavored remix artists, the Disco Fries, are releasing their version of 80's hit "Final Countdown." The original version, by Swedish band Europe, was a song that reached number one on charts in twenty-five different countries. In the United States, it made it up to number 8 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
The Disco Fries version dials back the synths and the 80's hair flair delivery while simultaneously magnifying everything else. It seriously bangs. If the original was enough to make twenty-five nations dance wildly with top of the chart blissfulness, then this Disco Fries bootleg should pretty much take over the world. In fact, I have no problem going on record as saying when aliens come from the skies and overtake the Earth to replace the planet they already f***ed up, they probably will be blaring this track from their telepathic speakers (the Disco Fries telepathic version of this song should be out early 2028). It's not a good thing or a bad thing. It's just a really big thing.
