    Yes I think so, but its chorus is basically english as well .. It is definitely the only song that topped the Billboard charts with german in it though if Wikipedia doesn't lie

    The thing with "99 Luftballons" by Nena is that the German version of the song was entirely unknown here, the band had to record an English version of the song titled "99 Red Balloons" and that was the version that was a hit over here. "Forever Young" is also sung in English.

    Falco's "Rock Me Amadeus" on the other hand became a classic over here in it's original German-sung language, it basically transcended the language barrier. But yeah I checked and he's from Austria, yet he still had the biggest German-language song out there right?

    In the charts back then it's 99 Luftballons, but now on the radios and streaming I think it's Forever Young.
    I think this song is quite memorable.

    Yes, exactly.

    I love Falco's music.

    This is Falco's biggest hit here, they still play this in bars where they regularly play 80's & 90's music

    I didn't know they were still manufacturing new units in 2000, guess they just couldn't accept defeat.

    I got mine around 93 or 94 I think, pack-in was emotions. The only prerecorded mini-disk I ever owned. I used mine right up until iPod got released. Battery life was great on the portable players, much better than portable cd. I used to get looks changing out disks in public. LOL

    [MENTION=65100]aRat[/MENTION] this German tune is a classic in Latin America, everyone here knows it and latin bands have made samples and covers of this:



    I don't know, could this be the most global song coming out of your hole?

    I liked her "Counting Down The Days" era.

    Her version of the song is stunning but it is indeed massively overplayed, that's the reason I barely listen to it these days.

    However she has other songs that are very cool. "Smoke" is beautiful and hypnotic.

    Yeah I'd say religion is very important but for christmas the traditional / folklore songs are the ones generally getting the most plays. That notion of having an anglo popstar singing a modern english christmas song is not really a thing that hits big over here.

    What Lies Beneath is a great film. Those that haven't seen it should definitely give it a go.

    I haven't seen White Oleander, from the trailer, I'm not sure if I would find it interesting or not. Bit of a coming of age tale?
