Whenever I hear this song:

You and I in a little toy shop
buy a bag of balloons with the money we've got
Set them free at the break of dawn
'Til one by one, they were gone
Back at base, bugs in the software
Flash the message, "Something's out there"
Floating in the summer sky
99 red balloons go by.

99 red balloons floating in the summer sky
Panic bells, it's red alert
There's something here from somewhere else
The war machine springs to life
Opens up one eager eye
Focusing it on the sky
Where 99 red balloons go by.

99 Decision Street, 99 ministers meet
To worry, worry, super-scurry
Call the troops out in a hurry
This is what we've waited for
This is it boys, this is war
The president is on the line
As 99 red balloons go by.

99 Knights of the air
ride super-high-tech jet fighters
Everyone's a Silverhero
Everyone's a Captain Kirk
With orders to identify
To clarify and classify
Scramble in the summer sky
As 99 red balloons go by.

99 dreams I have had
In every one a red balloon
It's all over and I'm standin' pretty
In this dust that was a city
If I could find a souvenier
Just to prove the world was here...
And here is a red balloon
I think of you and let it go.

Pull any strings for anyone else?

Goldfinger! Yes, I know it's a cover, but still, I love the song! Makes you think about war and such, eh? What it's all for.....

Yeah, but it was done in '84 by a german band called "Nena."

The thought of war doesn't bug me, just the idea of someone spilling a drink at a station can start it? *shudder*

Not to start another religion thread, but this violence in the name of faith reminds me of a song by The The on their 1989 album 'Mind Bomb.' http://www.attrition.org/~munge/Armageddon.html

I love that song! I use to listen to it all the time in the 80's. The german version is the best by far.

99 Luftballons
Auf ihrem Weg zum Horizont
Hielt man für UFOs aus dem All
Darum schickte ein General
'ne Fliegerstaffel hinterher
Alarm zu geben, wenn's so wär
Dabei war'n da am Horizont
Nur 99 Luftballons
