Nina Hagen - I'm a Believer

I love when avant-garde rockers covers pop songs!
This one is different from what I would have expected from the diva of punk.

More poppy yet!?

Is that Nina? So pretty under the Munster make-up*? What a waste she hid that.

And Nina with a symphony orchestra backup!

*Seems to be, here's a pic of her with less extreme make-up. Clearly the same features.

Again: what a shame. I wonder if she was afraid of not being taken seriously if she looked like just another pretty pop doll?
Or if she, like many, felt she had to take on a mask, to become somebody else, in order to let the extreme creations flow freely?

thanks to A: Nina at 19, now for something entirely different!  Du hast den Farbfilm vergessen
Aw, so cute.

In that last image she resembles her daugther a lot.

... Found her... "Cosma Shiva". What is it with celebrities and baby names?
But beautiful woman.

This was a big hit in the GDR!

Thanks, dude!

It's fun to see people's young creations.

And always fun to hear pop songs in Germans, talk about stunt casting.

you're are welcome ;) I quite like the song, too!

Nina early career also confirms that in order to being able to break the rules, the first step is to learn them!
