R.I.P Diego Maradona: Opus - Live Is Life • TopPop

Today, November 25, 2020 it was announced that world famous soccer player Diego Maradona died. The football world is mourning his death en masse. The Argentine Football Association expresses its deepest sorrow through chairman Claudio Tapia. "He will remain in our hearts forever," writes the union about Maradona, who led his country to the world title in 1986.

On 19 April 1989 the song 'Live Is Life' was played by Austrian band Opus during the warming up in Munich before the UEFA Cup semi-final return between FC Bayern Munich and S.S.C. Napoli. Napoli soccer player Diego Maradona did a 'keepie uppie’ exhibition while the song was heard on the stadium's loudspeakers. This has become a classic among football fans."Live Is Life" is a song recorded by Austrian group Opus in 1984. It became a European number-one hit in the spring and summer of 1985.

The single also reached the top position in Canada and was a top 40 hit in the US in 1986.
In the Netherlands it reached #3 in april 1985 especially due to the fact that it was hugely popular in the après-ski pubs in Austria visited by wintersporters.

It was covered by many artists throughout the years and became a huge hit again in 1989.

The song is also known as ‘Life Is Life’.
The band was in Holland on 18 March 1985 to record this early original version exclusively for Toppop TV!
