Walk Like an Egyptian?

I attended a Rock Band night a few night’s back.

Someone commented they wanted to play “Bangles.”

I responded, “A song called Bangles?”

I received stares of disbelief.

“How old are you?” one asked.

“I’m 28.”

“Well, I’m 28 too. Where the heck were you in the ’80’s?”

“In the Philippines.” I responded.

“Ah, that explains it.”

As they were playing the song, I started laughing, “Oh wait, I have heard the ‘German’ version of this song.”

I received some more weird stares.

Well, to show you all I’m not crazy (at least, not when I’m taking my meds), here’s the “German” version of Walk Like an Egyptian.

  1. thanks for that – it gave me a laugh. One of my favorite songs is a bangles song. “Our lips are sealed”. I wonder if they do that in german too?

  2. Love it! My daughter had her first father/daughter dance this past weekend and she was jammin to this song! Well, the American version of it anyways. 🙂
