Last Thursday, Rammstein released "Germany," the first single from the new album released in May. Meanwhile, the clip has more than 18 million views on Youtube.
Now the big one, but: Many fans are familiar with the beginning of the song.
Listen carefully at the top of the video …
The song "Our Darkness" is by the British artist Anne Clark (58), who was one of the most important representatives of electronic music in England, especially in the 1980s.
"Our Darkness" is still one of their most important songs! Many fans believe that the electric melody that opens and permeates has a strong resemblance to the electronic melody of Rammstein's "Germany."
Below the English video, therefore, also comments as:
"Rammstein" lent "the opening sequence to" Germany "… I just thought of the first audience that I knew it."
One fanatic wrote that Anne Clark should explain how she managed to steal Rammstein's music in 1984.
Now the icon of New Wave, Anne Clark, even commented on Facebook.
She writes, "It's good to know that Rammstein was influenced by my little song with David Harrow."
As a fan wrote "Sue it!", Anna Clark replied with a salmon smile: "Let's see what my editor says."
Rammstein and Anne Clark did not comment on a BILD request for similarity.
