This one goes out to my favourite sister, who could probably use a laugh about now. We originally heard of Otto Waalkes from a penpal of hers way back when we were teenagers. She sent my sis a tape and I think we wore it out. ^_^ Sadly, I had no idea what his last name was, and internet searches were fruitless until YouTube came along. You have no idea how thrilled I was to find him on Saturday. Hansel and Gretel was one of the songs we listened to ad infinitum. There was another that vaguely remember about a Taxi, and a version of 99 Luftballons as well, but I haven't found them yet.
For non German speakers (or listeners) this is a medley of Hansel and Gretel songs done in different styles. He starts out by "translating" the song for Scandanavian listeners, and then for Americans. I think you'll enjoy at least that part if nothing else. And if you remember the VW ad with the "da da da" song, stick around until he goes to the drum set. ^_^
