These 3 80s Songs Were Originally Done in German

Every weekday at 7:30am & 5:30pm I play for you a mixtape which are three songs in a common theme. They are all submitted by YOU!! 

For today's afternoon mixtape, Adam in San Jose submitted 3 80s songs originally sung in German. Peter Schilling from Germany wrote the kind of sequel to David Bowie's 'Space Oddity' continuing the story of the astronaut Major Tom. Peter originally recorded it as Major Tom (Völlig Losgelöst)  but we all know the english version as Major Tom (Coming Home). 

Check out the other two songs originally done in German below....


Falco did the original German version Der Kommissar which is about a government official and After the Fire put their english spin on it! Check it below!


Closing out the mixtape is 99 Red Balloons which was originally recorded as 99 Luftballoons...
