Surprisingly Delightful

"I'll admit it: I bought this disk only because of the song that was played on the Volkswagen commercial. I wasn't expecting a whole lot else on this.How pleased I was to discover some other equally fun songs on here! "Boom Boom" and "Hearts are Trump" are two great songs that follow the famous "Da Da Da." "Anna" has some neat strange background sounds going on.I love the song "Drei Mann Im Doppelbett." I'm not exactly sure what it means (I know the translation is: "3 men in a double-bed") since the same 4 words are just repeated over and over again, but I sense that it means that they are living in cramped quarters. Hey, don't think about this song too much...just listen to it and love it!Trio did the best rendition of "Tutti-Frutti" since Val Kilmar sang it in the movie "Top Secret." I'm not trying to say that Trio's sounds anything like it. This is totally unique and completely hilarious.This disk is worth buying just for these few great songs. I didn't go ga-ga for any of the other ones (well, "Tooralooralooraloo" was pretty good too I guess). It won't become your favorite disk, but if you liked "Da Da Da," this will give you some other equally-good songs."
Fahrvergnugen ruins a great album re-release . . .

"I absolutely love this band-- they did some things with music that influenced me years and years later as I played my own music--but Mercury records screwed up the chance to turn new generations of listeners onto this great German Art/pop band by making the re-release of Da-Da-Da (the album) a "best of", instead of actually making the original 1982 album available.
This is NOT Trio's brilliant 1982 Da-Da-Da release-- it was Mercury's attempt at repackaging an already great album for the fahrvergnugen-inclined of 1997 and making a quick buck-- a lazy, sloppy, badly-packaged quick buck.
The original Da-Da-Da is available here at Amazon (#B0000AXM3G) as a 2-disc $56 deluxe import from Universal Music Group (which Mercury was absorbed into)-- you should go to and tell them to consider releasing this set in the U.S. at a reasonable price.
The first disc is the original album and the 2nd disc is rare, live and demo tracks. -- here's the tracklisting (the * denotes an amazing song you should hear)
1. Achtung, Achtung
2. Ja Ja Ja**
3. Kummer

5. Nasty*
6. Energie
7. Sabine Sabine Sabine***
8. da da Ich Lieb Dich Nicht du Liebst Mich Nicht Aha Aha Aha

10. Nur Ein Traum*
11. Ja Ja Wo Geht's Lank Peter Pank Schönen Dank
12. Ya Ya*
13. Paul*
14. Danger Is*
15. Trio*
16. Lady-O-Lady**
17. Halt Mich Fest Ich Werd Verrückt
18. da da I Don't Love You You Don't Love Me Aha Aha Aha
19. da da Ich Lieb Dich Nicht du Liebst Mich Nicht Aha Aha Aha [Extended Version]"
Sprockets Does The Pixies
massthreat | 07/11/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"When you mix SNL's Sprockets with the Pixies what follows is the highly digital, novelty-band Trio. Germany had a ball with them in the mid-80's, however, they somehow reached the USA in the mid-90's with their radio-friendly, commercial jingle "Da Da Da." Nevertheless, beyond their one-hit wonder are other ditties which deserve mentioning: "Hearts Are Trump" has that killer bridge which makes you wanna sing along. "Drei Mann" soars with a whistling melody. There's a knockabout version of Little Richard's "Tutti Frutti," altho not as bad as Pat Boone's version. "Is It Old & Is It New" is somewhat halcyon yet asinine. "Anna" and "Sunday You Need Love" resemble power-pop anthems. And it all ends with an exorbitant rendering of the "Da Da Da" single, but as a whole, the composition remains stimulating."
