THE ROCK SONG OF THE DAY IS: EUROPE - CARRIE

"Carrie", by Europe
"Carrie" is a 1987 hit single and power ballad released by the Swedish hard rock band Europe.

It was the third single released internationally from the album The Final Countdown, and was number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart (#1 on the Radio and Records chart) in the USA during the fall of 1987. The track on the B-side of the 7" single was "Love Chaser".

The song was co-written by vocalist Joey Tempest and keyboardist Mic Michaeli in 1985. An early version of the song that consisted of just keyboards and vocals, was played on a tour in Sweden the same year. The demo version was similar, but the final version that was included on the album The Final Countdown included the whole band playing.
