So has Schnappi reached the UK or the US yet? It's currently playing on the radio here. Maybe this could be the first artist from Germany to really make the international breakthrough? We are so proud of her.

Well, I went to the store and bought it. It's worth the purchase. The whole album is actually good, and I usually HATE this type of music.
The band is actually called O-Zone. (If I understand correctly from the previous thread, Haiducii is another group that actually copied the song and sang a near identical version of it in another market, and were then promptly sued. the O-Zone version is the one people are actually hearing.) The disc is called Disc-O-Zone. Also, I believe they are actually form Moldova, where a form of Romanian is spoken (so yes, romanian is the language.)

I doubt he is Dutch.
First off, he's fat, and I've never seen a really fat Dutch person. Secondly, look at that room he's in. It doesn't look like the standard "euro" decor you would expect to find. It looks very American/Canadian.

"Schnappi" is known worldwide now - cool.
Ok, we just can't hear it any longer but we have to make clear it was a children's song and adults love it.
We have little strange music favorites at the moment in Germany. Remember the song the guy in post 1 is singing we have 2 versions of it in Germany at #1 and #2 hit list here.
Nobody can say now we Germans don't have any humour.
And concerning the boy (QR332 wrote the link): he has a good voice but not the Schnappi girl.
I love the Schnappi versions of Groenemeyer, ACDC etc.
QR332, I don't have links but can send you MP3's per mail if you want to.
