Out In the Streets from Triologie: The Best of Trio

This German minimalist combo wasn't well known in the US during the period when they recorded (1980-85), but their song Da Da Da caught American ears when used in a 1997 commercial for Volkswagen.

Usually reliant only on a single guitar, tiny drum kit and a Casio VL-1- and three chords- to create their sound, Out In the Streets stretches a bit, including a bass, organ and accordion. It's a simple song, but one that's stuck in my head since I first heard it back in the early '80's. I'd be remiss if I failed to warn you: as the third verse comes up, watch out for the American subtitles.
