Despite the scrooge of the 80s music intelligentsia legitimacy police, I give to you for the holiday season 99 Luftballons! (plus a bonus track in the extended!)


Bonus track! Der Kommissar

Now, back to playing Dragon’s Lair on my iPhone!

    thank you for all the blog traffic.
    sad, tho : you have completely missed my point. but thanks for wasting your blog space on you tube songs that clogged MTV & that radiolovin people have heard on commercial radio a bazillion times before. My top ten list was not my personal list of songhithate from the 80's but a what and why i don't play commercial radio hits when they make up a large amount of the lame requests on my college radio show. I am sure you listeners are enjoying this refreshing sounds of 198……..ugh. Props to Tim for the try – got any FALCO videos while you are audibly alienating your audience ?

  • Intelligentsia ahoy!

  • mvirenicus

    i don't listen to anything but NPR and my smiths/morrissey cd collection, so seeing and hearing these songs again was a refreshing bit of nostalgia. good tunes, too. carry on…

  • PS – I got your point. 9 out of 10 of my opinions surveyed even agreed with you! I think it was Tim (not you) who struck a nerve. All in good fun. Falco. Hells yeah.

    We audibly alienate our audience often. Did you catch that video Tim posted with a whiny dude on a Ukulele?

  • OK kids. I gotta go back to making cookies with my kids and engaging in this ridiculous notion called marriage.

    (damn. Tim's right. I AM crotchety!)

  • i love djbg!!!!!

  • Shalom Eric,

    I always loved this song — I have an affinity for German Rock(the Germans got the Beatles long before the rest of us did) — but my best friend in the Navy hated it because he thought Nena was dissing one of his heroes: Captain James Tiberius Kirk.

    B'shalom,

    Jeff
