Those Crazy Germans
I have become fascinated by the fact that so many American classics have been recorded in german.
Johnny Cash doing "Wo Ist Zu House, Mama?", to the Beatles' "Komm Gibb Mi Hahn" to Petula Clark's "Downtown"
Even Peter Gabriel recorded "Games Without Froniers" in German. There was even one guy - Ralf Paulsen who recorded the Mister Ed Theme in German. But this here song just about takes the cake. In most instances these songs sound kinda neat - however this one may cause you to take pause. For your cacaphonic pleasure, I present to you "Rappers Delight"
