With all the Hullaballoon over lighter-than-air spybags crisscrossing international borders and home-grown gasbags sounding off about the implications we thought we’d provide some musical background from that Cold War soothsayer Nena and Der Band of Hunky Germans.

They shouted, “War,” and wanted power – There was more hot air released on Capitol Hill these last 3 days than when they shot that thing down.
Haha, good call. I was thinking of this song this morning, great song and video, she was gorgeous…
Crushed bigtime on Nena. My sisters lusted after the keyboard player. We watch a lot of MTV in those days.
Firmly implanted in my head now thanks.
99 Luft balloons by Nena, well played. Also Up Up and Away by the 5th Dimension.
Dating ourselves horrendously here but remember seeing the 5th Dimension at Red Rocks. Also Sergio Mendes!
Oh my, there were bison and Conestogas out there then…
China just shopping for more real estate in Montana and Idaho. Their satellites do the heavy spying.
Definitiv eine Schönheit!
My flight fantasy always goes back to the lawn chair balloon guy, er, balloon-naut.
That was pretty crazy. We thought his descent protocol was particularly creative…
