The Final Countdown

The epitome of 80s rock – even 5 year olds can sing the chorus (see video) – what’s not to like?!

It translates to the ukulele fairly well (apart from a rather tricky solo section – but that part is hard on any instrument!) – and it’s a lot of fun to play in a group. Get the kazoos/melodica out as a brass section and I defy anyone to not tap their foot along with this.

I’ve moved it from the original key of Cm to a little easier on the voice Am.
