Nina Hagen

Artist: Nina Hagen
LP: 7" single
Song: "Zarah (Ich Weiss, Es Wird Einmal Ein Wunder Geschehn)"
[ listen ]

I finally broke down and went to a record store today to buy the new Future Islands CD. But after listening to it at the listening station, I decided not to get it after all. Of course, the listening station headphones were broken, so I could only hear the new CD in one ear. Maybe all the good parts were in the other speaker! 

But I ended up browsing and found this 1983 Nina Hagen single for $1.99. It reminds me of my sister. Of course my sister spells her name with an 'S' instead of a 'Z,' but she also has blond hair. Of course my sister can't kick that high, but she also speaks German. Of course, my sister is Mormon and can't sing all crazy like Nina Hagen, but she does own a pair of red shoes. So my sister and this Nina Hagen single actually do have quite a bit in common, you see.

Wunderbar! Freaky German diva Nina Hagen’s wild 1983 disco-punk album Fearless (produced by disco maestro Giorgio Moroder) is pretty much a “lost” album now. I bought it on vinyl as a teenager, but if I wanted to replace it on CD (I don’t have a record player anymore) I’d be out of luck: prices for the out-of-print CD vary from £127.81 to £1301.60! And it’s not available in i-Tunes.
