CAN- Halleluwah vs. DSCHINGHIS KAHN- Dschinghis Kahn

I haven't been posting many individual singles as of late, but I just felt the need to demonstrate how much West Germany in the 70's was a hell of a drug...

This Can single I have been hoisting high above my head since I found it at the Platten Pedro record store in Berlin (prices are high, but plenty o' raritease). Not much needs to be said here about "Halleluwah" except that once again any Can purists will be disappointed by the truncation of the edit (not to mention the mix), but goddamnit! The fact that this exists makes me happy to be alive! "Turtles Have Short Legs", a non-album track is also quite amazing, though I agree it would stick out on Tago Mago. Here is a good review from Head Heritage.

Can- "Halleluwah"

Can- "Turtles Have Short Legs"

Then, well there is Dschinghis Khan.

It doesn't get better than this video from the Eurovision Contest (4th place!!!) in 1979::>

Could have said it better myself. Their song "Moskau" was even an international hit, but believe me neither song hits no matter how ironically themed the night is. Better play it for disapproving friends while dancing wildly in yr living room late one night after the bars close.

Dschinghis Khan- "Dschinghis Khan"
