A modern sing along song done with a classic Steely Dan type 70's groove!
This CD Single is of a sports anthem in the style of Queen's "We Will Rock You/We Are the Champions", Anastacia's "Boom", Right Said Fred's "Stand Up (for the Champions)", Steam's "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye"*, and Gloria Estefan's "Reach."
The song "Our Finest Hour" (and the German translation "Heut' ist unser Tag") was selected to be the team's anthem by the German National League volleyball champions, VfB Friedrichshafen (http://www.vfb-volleyball.de). On this disc you'll find both the English and the German versions, with both the Radio Edits and the Mirema Remixes which feature the volleyball team helping out on vocals.
