Nena - 99 Luftballons - EPIC 10106

99 Luftballons" (German for "99 Air balloons") is a protest song by the German pop-rock band Nena from their 1983 self-titled album. Having achieved widespread success in Europe and Japan, plans were made for the band to take the song international with an English version by Kevin McAlea, titled "99 Red Balloons". The English version is not a direct translation of the German and contains a somewhat different set of lyrics. The later-released English translation, "99 Red Balloons", was the version that became popular outside of Germany and neighboring countries, with it topping the charts in Canada, the UK, Australia and Ireland. American audiences preferred the original German version, which became the highest Billboard charting German song in US history when it peaked at #2 in the US.
