DiscussionLooking for an obscure late 80s/early 90s French rap song that was shown on Night Flight in the 90s
I will give Gold and will be forever grateful to whoever can help me track a song down - I've been looking for it for about 12 years now.
This particular video aired on an episode of Night Flight. Unfortunately, there NOT a lot of information on Night Flight online, especially from the second run that was hosted by Tom Juarez between 1990 - 1993. From what I've gathered in my research, the second run was basically a compilation of previous episodes.
However, I do remember a lot from this particular episode. The theme was "European hits" (or something across those lines) and contained the videos listed below which thankfully, I've been able to track from memory!
I also vaguely remember the storyline of the French video - there was a shady character in a rain coat in a telephone booth, there's lots of entering dark buildings, looking around corners to see if someone is following them, and I think at the end, someone gets double-crossed (and maybe killed) by a woman.
Other videos in that episode:
Krokus - Screaming in the Night
Nina Hagen - Zarah
Scorpions - No One Like You
George Kranz - Din Da Da
Peter Schilling - Major Tom
Taco - Puttin' on the Ritz
Yello - I Love You
Nena - 99 Luft Balloons
oddly enough, the episode ended with a new song (at the time): U2's Even Better that the Real Thing
And one other detail I remember - before the Yello video, Tom Juarez said something about Dieter Meier (the lead singer) sitting in the middle of the town square counting 100,000 pieces of metal and putting them in a pile.
Anyway, all this to say that for all these years, hints of that French video have stayed in my mind and it's driving me crazy!
