THE ’99 LUFTBALLONS’ ROLE (OTE: 160,000€ – 165,000€)

On their 1983, self-titled album … German band ‘Nena’ released “99 Luftballons”.
Following wild success across Europe … an English version (“99 Red Balloons”) was released the year after.

Since the English version of the song wasn’t a direct translation of the original … the band didn’t approve, claiming … “we made a mistake there. I think the song loses something in translation and even sounds silly.”

As such, even though the band has performed more than 500 concerts in the last 30+ years … Nena has never sung the English version, live!

What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s role?
Absolutely nothing!

That said, Nena (real name; Gabriele Susanne Kerner) was born in Hagen, Germany … which is 50km from Düsseldorf.
And … it just so happens, Match and Fable is working on a senior sales role … based in Düsseldorf!
