The original version from 1981 of this weird cover from the 1930 German song composed by Friedrich Hollander from the film “The Blue Angel” starring Marlene Dietrich . Given a camp electronic work out by Bev Sage and Steve Fairnie in this extended 12″ version. Looking at the promo vid I don’t think they were going for the Novelty Hit Record, just a bit of alternative fun. The re-release , remixed version from 1982 is over here;
Marlene Dietrich eat your heart out, a bit of a homage in the vocals. Lovely analog synth bass line.
The B-side is dark and really reminds me of early Goldfrapp, piano and vocal effects, a moody bit of minimal coldwave.
