Musical Poll: 99 ___?

It’s the last week of the winter term here, so here is a totally serious and important music-related poll question:

(OK, maybe the end-of-term craziness is making me just a tiny bit punchy…)

    I prefer my inane pop to be in foreign languages, so that I can sing along without having to think about how stupid the lyrics are.

    I was a foreign exchange student in Hamburg when 99 Luftballoons became a hit in Germany. Right about the time I returned home it was fading away there, and gaining popularity in the States. Purgatory.

    @KevinQ: Whatever works for you. I have just enough knowledge of German to figure out that “99 Luftballons” is about war, probably of the nuclear variety.

    Stephane Grappelli is who’s playing on my Pandora Radio now; Tommy Emmanuel before that . . . .

    No love for “99” by Toto?

    Hast du es zum zeit fur mir,
    denn singen mich ein lied fur dir…

    I actually saw her in concert (Offenbach Stadthalle). Nothing like 80’s euro pop… Hope about some Kate Bush next? Or Bananarama!
