    Have to go with the German version.
    Not only does it expose Nena's roots, but it fits more because I have her (German version) Greatest Hits.
    Sometimes original is better.

    I have to go with 99 luftballons. Being multi-languagely challenged it is unusual for me to like a song more that I dont understand, but like most of you guys "It just sounds better"

    99 Balloon songs were bad! There was a parody called 99 Dead Baboons that was pretty good though!

    99 Luftballons definitely. All her songs sound much better in German, and there are some truly great songs on that album

    German version. I think songs sound better in the singer's native tongue.

    Thumbs up

    i may be a little late in posting something but there is yet a third version of 99 red balloons on the Grand Turismo 3 soundtrack for the Playstation 2. It actually sounds better than either of the previous versions. E-mail me if you would like to hear it.

    Easy choice for me, the German version! I don't know if it is because I speak German, but it is the same with Kraftwerk, they are better in German as well.

    Re: 99 Luftballoons or 99 Red Balloons?

    I voted that both rocked. Though if I had to choose, I would choose luftballons. I've only heard it 1 million times but hey, it's still great. by the way it is spelt 99 luftballons, just to accuritize it for everyone

    Both rocked I'd also like to add that 7 Seconds' cover of "99 Red Balloons" was really good, too!
