Most of the lyrics in this song are in German with some English words thrown in for fun! This song is by the band Trio, who were quite famous in Germany as part of the Neue Deutsche Welle scene, a style of West German rock music originally derived from post-punk and new wave music with electronic influences.
Trio’s main principle was to remove almost all the ornamentation and polish from their songs, and to use the simplest practical structures. For this reason, many of their songs are restricted to drums, guitar, vocals, and just one or maybe two other instruments, if any at all.
This song was a hit on over 30 countries including Canada, where it peaked at No. 3 in December 1982.
