I thought I’d get away from anime for a minute, and play some songs by a lady named Nina Hagen.
First, here’s a song called Hold Me, with a music video at Jim Morrison’s grave. The line that sticks out in my mind is “I can’t sing a gospel, I’m a white chick…”.
You may think she is somewhat strange after watching that video. And you’d be wrong. She isn’t just somewhat strange, she’s probably the queen of strange. Here is Nina singing Naturträne live at Rockpalast in her native German.
Don’t expect me to explain the pacifiers hanging from her ears, the verging on inhuman shapes her mouth seems to distort into occasionally, or the fact that she’s clucking like a chicken by the end of the song.
That’s half the fun of it.
