wussed out with his song "1999
" and refused to do a remake of his 1982
classic song for the party the world was going to have to celebrate the new Millennium. It didn't really matter as no-one gave a toss anyway. Prince
is on a crusade these days to remove all his music video's from Youtube
. Maybe he made a phone call to Lars Ulrich
on how to be a noob and to piss off your fans. Anyway, back to how Europe ended up being the non "official" song to see the Millennium in. Now, I don't know about you, but I always thought the song was about the end of the world? With all the fear of Y2K
with planes dropping from the sky and ATM machines blowing up, maybe the song choice was apt back then. At least Europe (the band) had the decency to make the time and do a jazzed up version of "Final Countdown" for the celebrations, not like some other
wusses I know.
