7 June 2012 - After The Fire - Der Kommissar

This classic 80's tune was originally performed by Falco.  In German.  This English-speaking group did an English-language version of the song soon afterwards.... and attained greater success in the United States with it.  The original was a hit outside the English-speaking world - this version brought it to those of us who did not speak German.

This is a very faithful cover, staying true to Falco's musical and vocal styles.  This fact angered Falco, who famously hated this version of his song, to no end.  After The Fire did make it a little richer musically, as the original was even more keyboard-heavy than this version.

Alles klar, Herr Kommissar?
