Das Omen by Mysterious Art

When the internet was still relatively new, and Youtube wasn't around yet, and getting mp3 files or used CDs of music wasn't something that you could log into Amazon or iTunes or whatever and just do, I was often led on a merry chase trying to find esoteric or obscure stuff.

One of the bands that I heard about in the early 90s as being a bit of a cult favorite in the late 80s was Mysterious Art.  They never got, as far as I know, any North American release, so they were already very tricky to find by the mid to late 90s when I was looking for them.  But they had a huge hit in Germany in 1989.

I did a post on a song of theirs earlier, but in my effort to not be too predictable, of course, I missed their most famous song.  They weren't exactly a one-hit wonder, but missing "Das Omen" is kinda missing the point, in many ways.
