This song is one of Duz' favorites. I first heard of it because of him. When we were in our early days as a couple, we always played this song.
Duz used to play car racing with his playstation and this is the song you'll hear when you are in the momentum and about to win.
Now, that I hear this song often whenever I watch the TV, I feel nostalgic.
"99 Luftballons" (German Neunundneunzig Luftballons, "99 air balloons") is an anti-war protest song by the German band Nena from their 1983 self-titled album. An English version titled "99 Red Balloons", written by Kevin McAlea, was also released after widespread success of the original in Europe and Japan. The English version is not a direct translation of the German and contains a somewhat different set of lyrics. via
