  1. Pretty good chart. Even Germany is represented with Nena! 🙂

    Nena was quite popular in Germany during the period that became known as “neue deutsche Welle” (new German wave). A handful of “neue deutsche Welle” artists also gained some traction in the U.S. like Peter Schilling with “Major Tom” and Trio with their masterpiece “Da Da Da (I Don’t Love You You Don’t Love Me Aha Aha Aha)”! 🙂
