Actually, Nena was only a OHW out of Germany... in Germany she tortures us to this very day! And I don´t know what we did to own that...
being german and all, I naturally hate that song she easily falls under the category of "Schlager", what would be "Beater" in translation but since that makes no sense, I´d translate it with oldfashion-people over 30 yrs love it- kind of music... (it´s a bit like the country obsession in the US, where we all were punished with knowing songs like "Achy Breaky Heart")
Little side anecdote - Nena was famous for having an embarassing incident in TV in the 90´s where someone told her that not shaving ones armpits is pretty out of fashion...... furthermore is Nena one of the favorite artists of (similar anoying german) Bill from Tokio Hotel.
The only version of that song that doesn´t make me instantly sick is the one from Goldfinger, awww the 90s.
