Nena’s music has been around all my life.
40 years of music, her now being 58 years old, still going strong with three of her 5 kids on stage.
Her son joins her in this song and his twin sister being in view in-between, another brother on keyboards… her husband maybe behind the camera like he was in London if he doesn’t play drums …
A love song to life, relationships, family, gains and losses, giving up, falling down, rising up …
This song hit me again today.
My brother and I were always glued to the TV when Nena sang on the German “Hitparade” all those years ago.
I saw Nena in London in a small venue in 2010. I hope to see her live again in a big capacity she always does one of these short days.
I translated this simple song because it needs to be heard outside of the German language. I did a literal translation. I might do a more poetic one that would fit the English language.
To me with all the bullsh*t in this life, it is a love song to life.
And none other than Nena can sing it.

Life is short, with or without drugs, alcohol, sex, sugar, music …
Live, be kind, rock and sing.
Nothing wrong with anything …
Just be kind
