Saturday Flashback: Kristina Bach – Hey ich such hier nicht den grössten Lover


Tom: I was on a coach in Germany. The driver was listening to an oldies station. For some reason, they played the Diana version of Candle in the Wind. They also played this, and, well, blimey.

Tim: Oh, oh yes blimey is exactly the right word there. There’s just…so much happening. The Eurodance beat, the Spanish guitar, that eastern European Eurovision entry “sha-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na”, and oh that lovely “ta da” ending.

Tom: As far as I could tell, this radio station was not having an Ironic Playlist Day. That’s genuinely on their playlist, “sha-na-na-na-na-na-na-na”s and all.

Tim: It’s fun to listen to, I guess? But I can only begin to guess what the song writer was on when they put pen to paper.

Tom: I’d like to clarify, by the way, that the translation of the title is “Hey, I’m not looking for the greatest lover”. It is definitely not “biggest lover” as Google Translate suggests.

Tim: Duly noted.
