Yes I remember Nena, they had a number 1 hit here with that too, I actually preferred the German version. The thing I remember most about her was she had hairy armpits, must have been a German thing. 

Here she is in 2002 with our very own Kim Wilde, Marty Wilde's Daughter

Another one posted with Katja Ebstein (see there), Der Stern von Mykonos (1983)
As for the "hairy armpits" of Nena, I think this is generally out now. That was in the times when "Frau" preferred to be "Natur" rather than "Frau rasiert", no make-up, little cosmetic, just normal hygiene, but mostly cleaner than the present generation.

And here's an entirely different one with Vicky Leandos, married as  Freifrau von Ruffin (and since divorced but still enjoying her privleges) and living at Gut Basthorst not far from Hamburg:

Die Bouzouki klang durch die Sommernacht (1973) with the spirit of Greece and a melodious air.

This is the music group ElbRock (Hamburg). It started around 2002 when some colleagues and old friends got together and started this group. They travelled frequently but also appeared in various localities in Hamburg. Earnings were not great considering it was only a part time thing, but usually covered the expenses.
Among the colleagues is Nicole as lead singer, the granddaughter of Walter Neusüß, she is second from the left. This photo was taken in the port some time ago. Nicole is no longer with the group and has taken on new challenges.
