Lorrie, You are killing me with this video! I had no idea what song you were talking about because while I am a child of the 80's, I was a CHILD in the 80's. I never knew the words, just always sang 'nah nah nah, nah nah na.' Look at me, getting smarter by the minute!PS: Nena has some MAD DANCING SKILLZ in her pleather pants. MAD.
love this post. this was a song that i loved to hate way back when
Racie!I saw that 8 Track in your back seat last time I drove you home!!!
Sadly I remember this song (and the German version) ALL too well! Love your story. Love the vid. Thanks for the reminder that, compared to Nena, I really CAN dance!
I read your post below then saw this one with the video. That story was nuts! I was expecting something very bad at the end but almost fell off my chair laughing. That was a great story!
The eighties had the best pants, didn't they?
Just so you know Lorrie - I had THAT song in my head all day long yesterday & when I woke up it was still there. I thought it as finally gone, but now it's back!Apparently, there is a new version out too -- redone by some new, hip band that I'm certain I've never heard of (and whose name I cannot remember). One of my 'hip mom' friends has it on her iPod (sorry, I have lots of 'hip mom' friends - this one has teenagers).
I almost spilled my Kahlua and coffee this morning when I opened this up at the office and saw the vid and my name in lights! Now I understand why I didn't recognize that song the first time around. She is actually singing "99 Wed Bawoons", which is exactly how I remember it. What were those Asian people talking about? For God's sake, speak Engrish!BJ, I did not have that 8-track in the back seat of my Gremlin btw. It was Meatloaf and you know it!
99 Luft balloons!
