    Europe's "The Final Countdown" or Asia's "Only Time Will Tell?"

    Do not be hasty in your answer.

    It will dictate what I think of you.

    "Only Time Will Tell" is more melodic. "The Final Countdown" is more recognizable and simpler.

    I'll go with Asia, Jones. Then again, I'm a big fan of Tony Banks, so this shouldn't be a shocker.

    Didn't Antarctica record "Byrdland?" Or was it Weather Report?

    The Final Countdown was damn near ruined by that Spelling Bee show or whatever it was called.
    I just know that the Soup ripped it endlessly.

    Gob Bluth did his magic act to Final Countdown, thus it wins by a mile.

    Plus, Asia sucks balls. Well, expect for Heat of the Moment, which rules.

    Europe. Any song used so well in the brilliant show "Arrested Development" gets my vote.

    Australia's "Who let the Aborigines Out" was solid at the start, although the song faded a bit in it's 17th minute.

    Hopefully this won't out me, but I spent two years doing warmups as a marginal high school basketball player warming up to "Only Time Will Tell," I have to vote Asia.
