Carrie (4:31)

Cover of The Final Countdown

From The Final Countdown and 212 other releases

“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.

On recent Europe tours, an acoustic version of “Carrie” has been played, with Tempest performing the song on an acoustic guitar.
