Listen To This: 99 Luftballons!

| Filed under: Listen To This

This is a rare treat!

We don't often hear pop songs in German. The last one we can remember was from Nena in the '90s!

But Andreas Bourani has given us a big anthemic jam, which we don't understand a word of but LOVE!

We think it's meant to uplift and inspire, because that's the effect it has over us! And it will you too!

Check out Auf Uns above!

    hey there, here is a translation:
    Have you some time for me,
    then I'll sing a song for you
    about 99 balloons
    on their way to the horizon.
    If you're perhaps thinking about me right now
    then I'll sing a song for you
    about 99 balloons
    and that such a thing comes from such a thing.

    99 balloons
    on their way to the horizon
    People think they're UFO's from space
    so a general sent up
    a fighter squadron after them
    Sound the alarm if it's so
    but there on the horizon were
    only 99 balloons.

    99 fighter jets
    Each one's a great warrior
    Thought they were Captain Kirk
    then came a lot of fireworks
    the neighbors didn't understand anything
    and felt like they were being provoked
    so they shot at the horizon
    at 99 balloons.

    99 war ministers
    matches and gasoline canisters
    They thought they were clever people
    already smelled a nice bounty
    Called for war and wanted power.
    Man, who would've thought
    that things would someday go so far
    because of 99 balloons.

    99 years of war
    left no room for victors.
    There are no more war ministers
    nor any jet fighters.
    Today I'm making my rounds
    see the world lying in ruins.
    I found a balloon,
    think of you and let it fly (away).

    I feel so proud right now. I am a Berlinerin and read your blog for years now so seeing this recommendation gives me chills! This was actually the official Fußball Weltmeisterschaft Song through our official german broadcasters and was sung at the party at the Brandenburger Tor - it just gave you THE chills then! After that amazing summer you got over this song, but I never saw the video clip to it until right now. So I take it that you, Perez, enjoyed your stay in Berlin so very much and therefore dig this song more, because you get reminded of places and views!? I am doing my masters in Vienna right now, so the clip makes me miss my hometown greatly. It is an powerful message with an uplifting spirit. He was actually the pre-act for the only-european-outside-Britain Taylor Swift concert in Berlin early this year. Thank your Perez for spreading the word. Kisses from Berlin!

    «Auf uns» actually means «to us», for example as a toast when drinking.
