    Yes, I suppose it is :) There's also a 2014 remastered version with a different cover which also features the face.

    Oh, I'm getting that 'not available' block, but I know that song well. Liked the way she rolled or trilled her consonants! :D

    Nena was one of the more commercial artists, but this is a lesser known gem. Very atmospheric with quite an unusual mesmerizing rhythm to match the lyrics, very well done.

    Paul Hardcastle, 19

    Is this really forgotten? When Paul Hardcastle was interviewed for the BBC's I Love the Eighties series in the Noughties(!) he said it was probably the least-often played number one from that decade. Perhaps this is no longer the case.

    I considered adding this song too! It was my favorite dance song, even though the subject matter is pretty dark.

    Major Tom by Peter Schilling -- possibly too commercial, but here is a live German version. I adore this song.

    I didn' t know there were so many fans of Neue Deutsche Welle and German songs :D

    Some lesser known Alphaville songs:


    The last one has a very long intro, you might want to fast-forward. The tune is catchy.

    Klaus Nomi, a real unique talent, died well before his time.



    This one I find particularly poignant, singing a song about death while he knew he was dying.

    Summer in Berlin is still a favorite of mine :)
    This one got a lot of airplay there. Sudwestfunk Baden Baden. I wonder if Radio Luxembourg still exists.

    Check out the time traveler at 2:52. Speaking of Time travel, what's Lady Gaga doing back in 1983?
