Covers of songs can be a lot of fun; they pay the ultimate compliment to the original artist. And, an 80s cover, well, that’s even better. But, when you do a cover of Nena’s ’99 Luft Balloons’ using only red balloons (it is unclear whether it took 99 balloons to do this), it takes the whole cover song thing to a completely new level. Nena released the anti-nuclear song in 1983-1984 (depending on location) and hit the #2 spot in the US charts in 1984.
I don’t even want to think about the amount of time it took Andrew Huang (of www.andewismusic.com) to make this happen. However long, I’m glad he did it.
