" 99 Luftballons "(독일어 : Neunundneunzig Luftballons , "99 balloons")는 1983 년 셀프 타이틀 앨범 에서 독일 NDW 밴드 Nena 의 노래 입니다 . Kevin McAlea의 가사가 포함 된 영어 버전 " 99 Red Balloons " 1984 년 앨범 99 Luftballons 로 유럽과 일본에서 널리 퍼진 후 발매되었습니다 . 영어 버전은 독일어 원본을 직접 번역 한 것이 아니며 다소 다른 의미의 가사가 포함되어 있습니다. [2] 미국에서는 영어 버전이 차트에 나오지 않았고, 독일어 녹음은 Nena의 유일한 미국 히트 곡이되었습니다.

가사

나는 정말 뚱뚱 해져서 "오 카를로, 당신이 쓴 것 중 최고입니다."라고 말했습니다. [삼] — Nena가 "99 Luftballons"의 가사를 처음 들었을 때

While at a June 1982 concert by the Rolling Stones in West Berlin, Nena's guitarist Carlo Karges noticed that balloons were being released. As he watched them move toward the horizon, he noticed them shifting and changing shapes, where they looked like strange spacecraft (referred to in the German lyrics as a "UFO"). He thought about what might happen if they floated over the Berlin Wall to the Soviet sector.[4][full citation needed]

또한 밴드가 인용 한 신문 기사는 Las Vegas Review-Journal 에서 1973 년에 5 명의 현지 고등학생이 리본이 달린 알루미늄 합금 Mylar 풍선을 발사하여 UFO를 시뮬레이션하기 위해 장난을 쳤습니다. 교통 신호탄에. 풍선에 반사 된 플레어에서 나오는 붉은 불꽃은 네바다 주 라스 베이거스 계곡 외곽의 레드 락 캐년 위에 떠 다니는 커다란 맥동하는 붉은 물체의 모습을 보여주었습니다 . [5]

제목의 직접 번역은 때때로 "99 개의 공기 풍선"으로 주어 지지만, 노래는 영어로 "99 개의 빨간 풍선"으로 알려지게되었습니다. [6] [7] , 표제 "99 빨간 풍선은"거의 스캔 되지만, 가사의 제 1 라인의 리듬 내의 적절한 장소에 떨어지는 음절 올바르게 Neunundneunzig (99) "아흔 아홉"이상의 음절을 더 갖는다.

The lyrics of the original German version tell a story: 99 balloons are set free and are mistaken for UFOs, causing a general to send pilots to investigate. Finding nothing but balloons, the pilots put on a large show of fire power. The display of force worries the nations along the borders and the war ministers on each side bang the drums of conflict to grab power for themselves. In the end, a cataclysmic war results from the otherwise harmless flight of balloons and causes devastation on all sides without a victor, as indicated in the denouement of the song: "99 Jahre Krieg ließen keinen Platz für Sieger,""99 년 동안의 전쟁은 승자에게 자리를 남기지 않았다"는 뜻입니다. 반전 노래는 폐허가 된 세계의 폐허를 걷고 풍선을 찾는 가수로 마무리됩니다. 작품의 마지막 줄에서 일어나는 일에 대한 설명은 독일어와 영어로 동일합니다. "Denk 'an dich und lass'ihn fliegen" 또는 "I think of you and let it go." [8]

영어 버전 및 기타 재 녹음

The English version retains the spirit of the original narrative, but many of the lyrics are translated poetically rather than being directly translated: red helium balloons are casually released by the civilian singer (narrator) with her unnamed friend into the sky and are mistakenly registered by a faulty early warning system as enemy contacts, resulting in panic and eventually nuclear war, with the end of the song near-identical to the end of the original German version.[8]

처음부터 Nena와 밴드의 다른 멤버들은 노래의 영어 버전 "99 Red Balloons"에 대해 반대를 표명했습니다. 1984 년 3 월, 밴드의 키보디스트이자 공동 작곡가 인 Uwe Fahrenkrog Petersen 은 "우리는 그곳에서 실수를했습니다.이 노래는 번역에서 무언가를 잃어 버리고 심지어 어리석게 들리는 것 같습니다."라고 말했습니다. [9] 그 달의 또 다른 인터뷰에서 Nena 자신을 포함한 밴드는 시위 밴드로 간주되기를 원하지 않는 그룹에 대해 "너무 노골적"이었기 때문에 영어 버전에 "완전히 만족하지 않는다"고 인용되었습니다. [10]

There have been two re-recordings of the original German version of the song that have been released by Nena: a modern ballad version, which was included on Nena feat. Nena (2002),[11] and a 2009 retro version,[12] which originally aired as an animated video on the European Arte channel (as part of a special called "Summer of the '80s") and included some portions in French (specifically, the second part of the first verse and the entire final verse). Nena later formally released this rendition on her 2010 Best of Nena compilation; however, the French text was omitted and replaced with the original German lyrics.

노래의 라이브 녹음은 1995 년부터 2018 년까지의 Nena의 7 개 라이브 앨범 모두에 포함되어 있습니다. [13] [14] [15]

노래의 영어와 독일어 버전을 결합한 특별 편집은 1984 년 3 월 24 일 주간에 Casey Kasem 과 함께 American Top 40 에서 재생되었습니다 (프로그램 # 814-12). [16]

수신

American and Australian audiences preferred the original German version, which became a very successful non-English-language song, topping charts in both countries, reaching No. 1 on the Cash Box chart, Kent Music Report, and No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, behind "Jump" by Van Halen.[17] It was certified Gold by the RIAA. The later-released English translation, "99 Red Balloons", topped the charts in the UK, Canada and Ireland.[18][19][20]

In his 2010 book Music: What Happened?, critic and musician Scott Miller declared that the song possesses "one of the best hooks of the eighties" and listed it among his top song picks for 1984. Nonetheless, he cautioned: "It must be admitted that this song suffers from an embarrassingly out-of-place disco funk interlude, and the word Kriegsminister."[21]

Music video

The promotional video, which was originally made for the Dutch music programme TopPop and broadcast on 13 March 1983, was shot in a Dutch military training camp, the band performing the song on a stage in front of a backdrop of fires and explosions provided by the Dutch Army. Towards the end of the video, the band are seen taking cover and abandoning the stage, which was unplanned and genuine since they believed the explosive blasts were getting out of control.[22]

VH1 Classic, an American cable television station, ran a charity event for Hurricane Katrina relief in 2006. Viewers who made donations were allowed to choose which music videos the station would play. One viewer donated $35,000 for the right to program an entire hour and requested continuous play of "99 Luftballons" and "99 Red Balloons" videos. The station broadcast the videos as requested from 2:00 to 3:00 pm EST on 26 March 2006.[23][24]
