Radio V, side A, track 10: “Superstitious” by Europe

Oh, Europe, if someone asked me to describe you, I’d kind of have to say, “Well, they’re a rock band.”  Because that’s what you are.  When you think of a generic rock band in a movie from the ’80’s, I’d bet the look and the sound that pops into one’s head would be you, Europe.  Now don’t misunderstand me, Europe, I’m not saying generic in a derogatory term.  Far from it.  As a kid, I grew up eating generic potato chips and I drank generic soda and I bathed with generic soap.  And you know what?  I loved them.  I would sit in my dad’s recliner and eat a whole box of those generic potato chips in one go.  And if I found a burnt one in there, which were my faves, well, that was just an added bonus, kind of like “The Final Countdown” is when listening to your stuff.  You guys knew how to rock, and maybe you didn’t capture my attention like Guns N’ Roses or Poison or Def Leppard, but if I could sit down and eat a box of generic chips and listen to “Superstitious” a few times, that was a pretty darn good day.

“Superstitious

Keep on walking that road and I’ll follow
Keep on callin’ my name, I’ll be there
And if a mirror should break (mirror should break)
It’s easy to take (easy to take)
Deep down I know that you care
Well, I’m not superstitious
No

Woooo

I’m not superstitious, I have no doubt
That there’s a reason how things turn out
While things are changin’ from day to day
Well, I keep this feeling with me all the way

And I want you to know that you’re on my mind
Every day
All of the time

So keep on walking that road and I’ll follow
Keep on callin’ my name, I’ll be there (yeah)
And if a mirror should break (mirror should break)
It’s easy to take (easy to take)
Deep down I know that you care
Well, I’m not superstitious
No

Ooooooo

It might be times of wonder when I’m on my own
Trying to find out if love is gone
It might make a difference, it might bring me down
But no superstition is gonna turn things around

And I want you to know that you’re on my mind
Every day
All of the time

So keep on walking that road and I’ll follow
Keep on callin’ my name, I’ll be there (yeah!)
And if a mirror should break (mirror should break)
It’s easy to take (easy to take)
Deep down I know that you care
Well, I’m not superstitious
No

Nooooo!

<awesome guitar solo>

So keep on walkin’, and we’ll make things right
Yeah, keep on dreamin’, each and every night
We gonna make it, that’s what we’ll do
Right to the end, girl, we’re gonna walk, on walk on through

So keep on walking that road and I’ll follow
Keep on callin’ my name, I’ll be there (you know I’ll be there!)
And if a mirror should break (mirror should break)
It’s easy to take (easy to take)
Deep down I know that you care
Well, I’m not superstitious
No

Not superstitious
