19 (German version) - Paul Hardcastle

Paul Hardcastle had a surprise hit with '19' in 1985, a song about America's involvement in the Vietnam war and the effect it had on the soldiers who served, using sampled dialogue from an American television documentary about the post-traumatic stress disorder suffered by veterans. He quickly recorded versions in French and German as well.

While I knew about these versions, I never realised a 12" version might also exist. But here it is: an extended remix of the German version of '19', featuring sampled dialogue entirely in German.

My collection: 12" single no. 607
Found: Record fair, Utrecht, November 19, 2011
Cost: 4 euro
Tracks: '19 (German version) (12" mix)' / '19 (German version) (7" mix)', 'Eat your heart out'
