To this day Nena sings better in German but her English sure is cute. I for one am a fan of both. And alligator, that clubmix came out in '83 on the English album not the USA one)and was very cool for the time.

Way better than the English version
English version is better, but they always play a terrible remix.
Yummy!
She had unshaven armpits in the video! Ewww! :)'

Lol Bite me! ;P Love ya too!
Really!? You never noticed that Captain Kirk comment!? & I thought you were a hawk! Lol
Love ya!
Love it! Both versions are bad a**!!! :) I never noticed the 'Captain Kirk' when I've heard it before... until seeing the lyrics here.
Don't know what the sons says but love it also have the English version too. I still think that the German version sounds a whole lot better

By the way, the English one doesn't even say the same words… it doesn't translate directly.
I love this song and have always!!! I speak German and can sing this whole song in German! :P
annamazing99
nevermind, i just found out.
annamazing99
what do the lyrics mean? anyone know?
I have this version under classic alternative and the English version under new wave.
The English version is an entirely different song.
Craptacular!
My dad's side of my family spoke German only. I know enough German to get by and understand Nenas lyrics. Awesome songs...
Love Nena you still look beautiful even today.
Awesome song!
The English Version "99 Red Balloons" doesn't even translate correctly to German... If you translate word for word German to English the so g makes little to no sense lol.... Great song none the less

@willem hammersbach "cos they're German dumbass"! You sound like an ignoramus.

katemely12

German version ROCKS!
better version! the english version is so dumb, this one sounds so much better!
I may be one of the few who enjoy the English version better than the German version.
Again, love this song!!!!!!!! ! ! ! ! ! :D
Love this song! Going to take German and Italian when I can! Best song ever!
So dropping Latin for German, I got a D- in there anyways
This is why I should have took German, even though I already knew Spanish I took it anyway. I would love to know what they're saying
so beast
German is such a beautiful language
sean_mcclain
The best summer ever!
FYI: 99 are the Ciccone's Mafia's LADP 9's cop gang, a group of murders.
They looked like us
I like any song that confronts the insanity of nuclear war. Germany is damn lucky it wasn't nuked in 1945. We just hated the yellow man more than Krauts.
This was the first cassette I ever bought. Great memories...
for you that dont know what this song is about its basically about 2 people buying a ton of ballons and letting them out the military thinks its some kinda of attack and it causes world war 3 lol its a very funny song
