Best Europe Songs

Their third album The Final Countdown rose them international fame.

The Top Ten

1 The Final Countdown

From the band's third album with the same name, their hit song reached number 1 in 25 countries - MatrixGuy

Without a competition, the best song by the group.


This was the first song I ever like as the Nationals would always play during the climax of a game. Go Nationals

2 Carrie

505 sucks

The final countdown is the greatest europe song and one of the greatest rock songs ever.

But I vote for Carrie, cause it is perhaps the best rock ballad of all times. So Carrie is number two, not three!

This song brings back some great memories

The Final Countdown's Europe's most popular song, but I love Carrie because it's one of their best ballads and I'm really big on glam metal ballads.

3 Superstitious

I vote for superstitious beacause of the solo this is just best europe solo probably and one of the best in the whole year

Love Chaser as number three instead of Superstitious? That's insane!

Superstitious is so awesome love joeys voice so powerful

The Love of my life and I love this song!

The final countdown deserves to be on top, but Rock the Night is clearly the second best song they've ever made! Just amazing song.

28 On Broken Wings

Not their most known song, but I think it's their best.

On Broken Wings is Europe's best song. It's melodic, it's fast, the musicianship is bang on & it rocks. There is daylight between On Broken Wings and their next best song.

On Broken Wings is by far Europe's song writing at it's very best. It's a straight-out rocker with a melody and hook that Jon Bon Jovi would kill for. John Norum is such an amazing guitarist.

On broken wings is song is a amazing melody x

29 Last Look at Eden

Their best song after the Final Countdown - full-on hard rock rather than wimpy stuff

This is not a glam rock song like in the 80s. This time is very different. Their music is full of power, hard rock at its best. - gustavochavarria

Last look at eden very powerful song xxx

Amazing hard rock. Not tip-top, but an important piece of any decent rock playlist. Certainly not their worst song (where it is now as I write this)

39 Memories

And when I say that their earliest stuff still sounds well I'm talking about the earliest music from 2003 to now.

The first two albums were pure fine heavy metal and sometimes I think they added some power metal sound into it (Scream of Anger, Memories, Dance the night away).
Those are two of my very favourite albums. The Final Countdown and Out of this world were hard rock albums, I like them a lot too, although I rather listen to the live versions because they sound much more heavy (Ready or not, Heart of Stone, Just the Beggining, Love Chaser, More than meets the eye sound better live).
On the loose is a good song, but I prefer the 1985 demo version (it's heavier) where "Can't you stay? " was recorded as well.
Their earliest stuff still sounds very well. It is different, but I like some songs.
Now, some people criticize the band for their hard rock albums TFC and OOTW, but come on... Joey is a real music genius... you need to be very talented and commited to make such compositions on both heavy metal and melodic/hard rock. That's something you should recognize. Obviously I would ...more
