Bubbling under: Nur getraeumt (Nena)

For many, the German band Nena (image credit) will only be known from their one hit 99 Luftballons (or the English version 99 Red balloons). This is a pity, because they made some of the most interesting music of the eighties, including their debut album Nena. Possibly their best song is the high-speed synthesizer-driven Nur getraeumt (Just dreamt it), which was a considerable hit in Germany before the balloons made her world famous. One of the most representative singles of the Neue Deutsche Welle (German New Wave).
