Da da da - Trio

da da da..ich lieb dich nicht...du liebst mich nicht...

Wikipedia says soemthing interesting: The song is often given as an example of a song that is extremely repetitive or devoid of creative talent. However, to understand Trio one must understand its context. It was a product of the Neue Deutsche Welle (or NDW). However, Trio preferred the name Neue Deutsche Fröhlichkeit, which means "New German Cheerfulness", to describe their music. At that time, as now, popular songs were based on extremely simple structures that were ornately produced. Trio's main principle was to remove almost all the ornamentation and polish from their songs, and to use the simplest practical structures (most of their songs were three-chord songs). For this reason, many of their songs are restricted to drums, guitar, vocals, and just one or maybe two other instruments, if any at all. Bass was used very infrequently until their later songs, and live shows often saw Remmler playing some simple preprogrammed chords on his small Casio VL-1 keyboard while Behrens played his drums single-handedly eating an apple. This simplicity was not simply due to an inability to sing or play well; Remmler's later solo career shows that he was capable of much more complicated music, and Kralle has demonstrated considerable ability as a guitarist in other ventures. Rather, their songs were bare-boned to show how bare the bones actually are.

Well you are one up on me then! When it first came out I hated it, and thought it was stupid... everyone around me loved it though, and I couldn't understand why. Almost 30 years later, I am in a better position to appreciate Neue Deutsche Fröhlichkeit and quite like it
