A to Z of the 80s - N is for 99 Problems



...But N Ain't One
by Jo Michelmore


Because this is the easiest letter I will ever write about; N. Performed by Nena, called 99 Luftballoons. The symmetry is beyond belief. Here, my friends, is the best pop song


not just of the 80s

 
not just starting with N


not just because it's from Europe


not just because it sounds like a pop song about balloons but like all the best pop songs has a hidden meaning...


...but it, quite simply, is the best pop song, ever written*.


I, like East Germany at the time it was written in 1983, will accept no argument.


Das Ende.




*In German.
