We here at Pong A Long just wanted to say that we surely think that "Heat of the Moment" off of Asia 's 1982 self titled CD is the best song that has ever been created, and will probably never be topped in our lifetime. For chrissakes, they even have a Sea Dragon grappling an oversized floating marble on the CD cover.
The lyrics in the song are flawless and ring true to the real world:
And now you find yourself in 82
The disco hotspots hold no charm for you
You cant concern yourself with bigger things
You catch the pearl and ride the dragons wings
Even Dem Franchise Boyz covered the song, although they slightly modified the lyrics to:
I'm all about my cash ride around wit a nice peace
Ear piece icy they straight up like me
You heard pimpin playa (they shine so brightly)
Don't stand so close vision burners with ice blingers
Asiaâ€™s brady-esque video stimulates the senses with up-close tambourine shots, flaming sunglasses, smashed hourglasses, and even the unheard of usage of a skin-tight button-down vest with no shirt underneath.
And we rest our case. We here at Pong A Long are are merely beer pong guru's, but we dare you to find a better song, and will even send you free stuff if we agree.
And No Europe's "Final Countdown" is not better.
