Any Neue Deutsche Welle experts around? I recently came across an old cassette (probably from '82 or '83) with a bunch of Neue Deutsche Welle songs on it. It could be a homemade mix-tape, or it could be a copy of an officially released compilation. I've been able to tentatively identify about half of the songs, but haven't had any luck with the others. Anyone want to take a crack at them? The first side of the tape is posted here, and the second side (with mostly unidentified songs) is posted here. Thanks! [more inside]
