EUROPE – OUT OF THIS WORLD (1988)
EUROPE released their fourth studio album, Out Of This World, back in August of 1988. My favorite song from this album is the opening track: Superstitious. This is just one fine, memorable and inspiring (uptempo) late 80’s ballad from Europe. I still own the cassette version of Out Of This World and I’m not selling it. It has nothing to do with my being superstitious either. Metal be thy name.
Sweden’s chart-topping, multi-million unit selling band spanned the Glam/Hair, Arena Rock, Hard Rock and 80’s Heavy Metal genres with their Heavy Melodic Rock sound; embedded with powerfully driven guitars along with a dynamic rhythm section and keyboards to match. The vocals of Joey Tempest are laced with Heavy Rock eloquence, coupled with his confidence and unique harmony.
EUROPE still kicks Heavy Rock ass to this very day. Ring that EUROPE bell and tell all the villagers to gather around, cause the song Superstitious has a brilliantly contagious sound!
Watch and listen to EUROPE perform Superstitious below! Hopefully this music video hasn’t been pulled for some lame reason. If it has, then check it out for certain on YouTube. Whoa.
