This looks like fun!

I don't know many German bands really and I don't particularly like this one but this is a pretty good version of my fave Holiday song

Plus, people here love them :shrugs:

Day 1


I think I posted this in last challenge too, so Ill say the German connection comes from the fact that Klaus Voorman produced this album.

day 2 


I didn't understand a word, but Brenda had a beautiful voice. A little bit about her background: 

"Brenda Nokuzola Fassie was a South African anti-apartheid Afropop singer. Her bold stage antics earned a reputation for "out

rageousness". Affectionately called MaBrrr by her fans, she was sometimes described as the "Queen of African Pop" or the "Madonna of The Townships".

Fun! I'll try this again... Day 1

(Damn you, Falco, for being Austrian :max:. I can only hope I'll still be doing this on day 61.)


Day 2

I would've gone for Miriam Makeba, but @Powerage5 beat me to it :max: But this gives me the chance to post a song in Afrikaans, the cutest language on Earth :wub:
