We always sang that song, "I just died in your arms tonight. Must have been something I ate."

I'm glad I just read this thread ... it reminded me of something I've thought for years.

I've always thought this tune by Icehouse has a vocal that sounds a lot like JW -- especially the "crazy" chorus (around 1:33).

 Cuttin Crew were good, "I just died..." was great (I remember I bought the 45 record, at that time...).
And I remember also an interview in which the guitarist of that band said he was a great fan of Steve Howe...

I still think Europe had the ultimate Asia mimic song in "The Final Countdown".

It seems like every component of that song was lifted from OTWT.

That's a sound clip that always shows up on a commercial or other once a year.

The Final Countdown, Europe?  I only know that sound from The Detroit Pistons games.

There was a Coke or Pepsi commercial last year which pitted Reggie Bush, the Running Back from the New Orleans Saints against one of their soda machines in competition.  The Final Countdown was the music they chose.

It must have been played 20 times a day during football season.  Geesh.

I always thought "The Sun Always Shines On TV" had a proggy, sympho feel. Most of their debut album sounds pretty tight anyway. Of their later endeavours I particularly liked "Summer Moved On" (around Y2K, I believe that was).

A-ha's "Take On Me" is definitely erroneously listed as an "easy" song to sing on Kareoke Revolution on the XBox.  It was definitely a surprise when you get to the chorus and each line keeps going higher and higher until you hit "In a Day or Twooooooooooooooooooooooo".  I actually nailed it but I had to go into the upper extremes of my falsetto voice and attach a vice grip in the nether regions. A-ha!

I listened to the A-ha's Hunting High and Low (the album) the other day and for the most part I was not impressed and it sounded kind of "dated".
