"the songs name is "99 Luftballoons", not "99 Red Balloons".....idiot" 99 Red Balloons is the English name, dipweed.

And I think the premise is still the same, so I see no problem, considering the band was in charge of the translation.

I would imagine it would be rather difficult to translate word for word to the same tune. I don't have a problem with it, especially since it keeps basically the same story.

Um...
I have a feeling the two versions were intentionally different.

I remember one night back then when I was listening to 'America Top 40' with Casey Kasem (yes, I'm old as well), and Casey played a 'special version' of '99 Luftballoons.

In some areas of the US, the German version was the hit, while in other areas the English version was the hit...so Casey spun a combined English-and-German version.

Ugh.

Of the actual song, I love the German version, "99 luftballons". I can't stand the engish version. And as for this...I don't know what to think of it. Ugh

"Perhaps you think of me a bit" in German translates to "Back at base, bugs in the software"

I don't think they were ever trying to make a direct translation, but that's funny anyway.

Why try to translate if you suck so bad?

The basic story of the song is pretty close in both versions. I think its a great song, in any language!

Link: Worst Translation Ever [Rate Link] - Check out the German and American versions of the 80s song '99 Red Balloons'. So different!

Yes, I'm old and I remember this song.
