Modern Talking: Brother Louie مدرن تاکینگ

During Iran-Iraq war in mid eighties, Modern Talking was a hit in Iran. Their songs became even more popular than Michael Jackson's break dance video clips. Ace of Base came then along, Madonna and some other big names...
But we (teenagers of isolation and war) rarely saw their video clips, just listened to illegally recorded sound tapes. Radio broadcast on western stations was too noisy...

We couldn't understand the lyrics, maybe some words. But we could feel the rhythm, melody and emotion, which moved us out of the sadness of those days, although for couple of minutes. The happy west was far away and the death was too close. Imagination was strong...


Here the original video clip of "Brother Louie", edited with scenes from a hot movie of those years: "Once Upon a Time in America" by Sergio Leone, both very nostalgic:
