Alphaville, probably best known for Forever Young, a tune that gained a bit more popularity from being on the soundtrack to Napoleon Dynamite and also had a wickedly crap happy hardcore remix (what didn’t?), were totally awesome. Germans did the whole 80s electronic thing pretty perfectly and this track is one of my favs from the era.
I found out the name of this tune in a strip club in Budapest. The “basement bar” at the hotel turned out to be full of manky looking women getting semi-naked and attempting to sell their services to anyone who’d listen. The DJ in the corner put this tune on, which I remembered from pop charts many moons ago, so I had to go and ask what it was called. I then left. Swiftly.
Anyway, I digress…
