Flashback Friday: “99 Red Balloons/Luftballons” by Nena

This was Nena’s sole Hot 100, Top 40, and Number 2 hit from 1984.  According to Song Database, it peaked at the second spot on March 3rd of that year. There were German and English speaking versions of the song, so I went with the American version here.

Coca-Cola is currently using a remake of the song to sell some of its soda pop during the NCAA basketball tournament, hence the reason it’s up for perusal on Flashback Friday this weekend.

More next week, as always.
