SUNDAY SONG SELECTION: 99 LUFTBALLONS BY NENA

Everyone's a superhero
Everyone's a Captain Kirk


The Sunday Song Selection for today is the 1983 hit song, '99 Luftballons' by Nena, a German band. For those of you that remember this song, there were two versions released: one was in German and the other was in English.We picked the German version because it's cooler.

This song is about how a nuclear war is accidentally started due to the release of 99 red balloons. A military commander mistakenly views the balloons as oncoming enemy fighters and the results is a Doctor Strangelove ending sans Slim Pickens. At the end, the singer of the song stands in the rubble of a post-nuclear war city and finds a lone red balloon. The singer thinks of someone and lets the balloon go.
