Rock The Night doesn't even sound good with the band's new sound, which is three times as good as their old sound.
The Final Countdown is easily better than most of the rest of that album, it's about the only song on it that isn't generic '80s keyboard rock. It's unfortunate really that the song is now used to define
generic '80s keyboard rock, because it's better than the stuff that really is derivative and boring (On The Loose, Ninja, Cherokee, etc.). And especially better than horrible ballads like Carrie (glad you've at least corrected that). I swear listening to that song too many times will turn you gay.
