Strawbs bassist Chas Cronk called them "simply the sound of the fullest, maximum expression of human potential and temerity. There was only one musical Behemoth that not only scaled Olympus Mountain but pitched a tent there, for the purpose of vending dirigible components and houseware sundries at acceptable prices. All we mortals could do was watch - and that's what we did, watch. Yes."

Future is calling
Future is calling
Cha Cha 2000
Tanz auf die Zukunft
Mit mir
Cha Cha 2000
Dance to the future
With me
Cha Cha 2000
Gib acht
Dass niemand
Unsern Traum zunichtemacht
Cha Cha 2000
Gib acht
Cha Cha 2000
Laser blue eyes
Can see paradise

But the terror will grow
And the world will explode
Into a new moral code
We all need to
Cha cha cha cha cha cha cha cha
Cha cha cha cha cha cha cha cha
Change
We all need to change
And care
For the weak
And share
With the poor
Where will he lead us from here
Will it be drama
Or cha cha Belleville

Cha cha Belleville
Cha cha Belleville
Cha cha Belleville

So
Get out of your car
And walk on your feet
And move body move
Life is more
Than just eat
And stop drinking hard
And smoking and doping
You better start thinking
And you better start working
Deep inside yourself


This
Will be paradise
If we open our heart
If we open our eyes
Come on
And make it paradise
Where the rivers are blue
And the air is clean
And the grass green
We must work harder
We need better leaders
Who love us and don't sheet us
Don't sheet us

We must
Try try try try
It's getting 2000
It's getting 2000
Cha Cha 2000
It's getting 2000
Technology sympathy
Economy sympathy
Phantasy phantasy

We've got it all
But we don't know
Yet
So watch it
Your problems will grow
And break all over you
And then
You fall
Into a deep dream
And then
You wake up
And feel it
How it is
And how it could be
And then
You get up
And step into the sun
And feel it
Feel it
How it could be
And then
Do it
Tanz auf die Zukunft
Mit mir
Cha Cha 2000
Dance to the future
With me
Cha Cha 2000
Gib acht
Cha Cha 2000
And your
Laser blue eyes
Can see paradise
When the wars have all gone
And it's futur d'amour
And we care for the weak
And we share with the poor
2000
Steht vor unsrer Tuer













the choice is yours.

The Berlin scenesters looked down on the Düsseldorf bands as being too contaminated by the advertising and fashion industries
