Der Hund von Baskerville (RIP Bert)

Cindy und Bert were a German Schlager couple who featured regularly in the Dutch top40 during my teenage years. Bert (Norbert Berger) passed away last weekend at the age of 66. I always thought that the song I selected for this post was a stunning choice in their repertoire - instead of middle-of-the-road Schlagers, here we have a rocking German version of Black Sabbath's Paranoid, set to lyrics inspired by the famous hound story of Sherlock Holmes. Art Rock score: 8/10 (great song, I would put it on my MP3 player).
