"Do you have some time for me?
Then I'll sing a song for you
of 99 balloons
on their way to the horizon."
It's funny that lately when I talk to my friends they're often like "Ooo Are you gonna blog about that?!" haha And it happened just like that yesterday when I was telling some people how I'm learning the German lyrics to "99 Red Balloons".
Silly as it is, this is my new personal goal. Every night I spend a few minutes singing in German. Over & over again. I've got the first verse memorized & the second I can read along with the right timing. I think in a few weeks I'll be karaoke-ready with no problem! But it's not for the karaoke glory...
This is my little way of brushing up on vocabulary & grammar rules. See there's a poem, called Die Lorelei, that I memorized way back in high school. And I can remember the full translation of all the words in this really long poem. So I thought why not just memorize more? If nothing else, at least I could fully rock out at 80's night, right?
So now I'm a diligent student of Nena. And have watched the music video at least 15 times. haha It's the worst video ever, you have to check out the keyboard player & the faces he makes! Love it. So, want to sing along with me?
