The original Single "Hohe Berge"
(High Mountains), performed by
Frl. Menke, was a Top 10 hit
on the German single charts in 1982.
It sold more than 2.5 million copies to date.
"Hohe Berge" was one of the first songs
to start a new music genre in Germany —
the Neue Deutsche Welle (NDW).
Next to Alphaville, Joachim Witt,
Peter Schilling, Hubert Kah, Falco,
Trio, UKW, Markus and others,
Frl. Menke was one of the very few
successful female artists along with
Ixi or Nena.
When she stepped into the spotlight
in 1982, her hit single "Hohe Berge"
became an instant success.
