Den Harrow – Broken Radio (1985)

Worthless trivia: this track recycles a lot of musical phrases already heard in other productions (such as this one.)

Zauberstab

Za ZaZauberstab (1982)
http://fr.youtube.com/watch?v=lD7QmKJ1LyQ

Peter La Bonté is Za Za. This is the 3rd single from the only album “Za Za” in 1982 on Blow Up.

Za Za – Zauberstab
Za Za – Zauberstab (instrumental)

Über kitsch and a quite funny tune ! A piece of the NDW (Neue Deutsche Welle) genre = the german new wave.

Note: “Zauberstab” meaning a magic wand for love so…

The german producer Florian Senfter (aka Zombie Nation, Splank!) covered this single in 2002 remixed one year later by Johannes Heil.

Si Tu Sais Compter…

399592081_fd33489e05_o.jpg

 Cesarez – Si Tu Sais Compter… (1983)

There is an alternative version of this Québecois tune and this time sung in English (the main chorus that goes like “Si tu sais compter ne compte pas sur moi” is now replaced by “If you can count don’t count on me boy”). The radio database contains both versions, the English one is courtesy of Blackberrie.
