    Maybe I should have done this post in the german forum, but as the song is in english I did it here.

    There seems to be a song where nobody knows from which band it is nor whats the name of it.
    A German radio presenter played the song at the beginning of the 80s in a show called "Music für junge Leute". But neither he nor anyone knows anything about the background of the song. A teenager once declared the song his own and posted it to Shazaam. But that was just a joke, of course.

    So, who knows this song?

    Here is the original article (in German).

    Here is the full version of this song:


    Here are the lyrics as far as someone is able to transcript it. Some people say it must be german band because of the accxent.

    The darkest pit of my mind
    After listening to it for about 20 sec, I really don't want to know who made it. I was expecting something good, not crap. Although the mix sound very good for the time, It must have been made in some of the better studios. Possibly some teens who never made it, but had the money to make a recording at the time, and someone kinda liked it and put it on youtube, very possibly without even their permission.

    Anyway, the song sucks. :rofl:

    I was the producer of the song back in 1984 at The Funkhaus. The band was called Elend des Lebens (Misery of Life) and the song, Die U-Bahnen Ihres Geistes (Subways Of Your Mind) was the last and only song the band every recorded before all being shot dead while attempting to climb over the wall and escape to West Berlin.

    Now this mysterious song is also a topic at reddit:

    Haha, I really love these poeple who say this can be an early song of Depeche Mode or OMD...others even mentioned "The Talking Heads" and "FisherZ". :rofl:

    Even if I also think its a german band it sounds a little bit like the band "B-Movie"...but only a little bit. They had an independent hit called "Nowhere Girl" at the early 80ies.

    Too late, that dog's Sadie, my dear old Auggie Doggie's grandmother. Auggie was a great dog...never used a leash with her in NYC and she would wait patiently for me outside of stores like Tower Records until I came out. The Augster was Sadie's spitting image. She's been dead for at least 40 years now YOU CRUEL, INSENSITIVE BASTID!!!!

    Ahh, I thought this is just a cool new feature with mysterious backgrounds I do not understand because I do not question those design changes anymore anyways. :hahaha:

    But I guess one time I will love it. At least this is how it always was in the past for me. :thumbsup:
