WATCH Der Hund von Baskerville - Cindy & Bert (German Black Sabbath cover 'Paranoid' 1971) bad cover-version shit-piss nice list

Cindy & Bert: Der Hund von Baskerville (1971)
Cindy & Bert: The Dog of Baskerville (1971)

If there was a prize for the stupidest cover version, this song would definitely be a hot contender:
every time I listen to it, I think: hm-mm, what did Outta Cheeseburger and Norbert Maria Berger think here?

my tip: not much.

and the producers?

probably the following:

hey, there's this new rock band (Black Sabbath), they have a successful song (Paranoid), let's do that in German.

but why with Cindy & Bert?!

Well, you have to accept that there are questions that probably can never be answered.

the song was originally released in 1971 as the b-side of the single "holly holy", said a-side is also a perversion, of a Neil diamond Christmas song.

I know the song from Bear Family's first installment of his Pop in Germany series which hits the ears of interested German fans of German hits.

awful nice!

even if Cindy & Bert top everything, which I know in this regard ...
By the way, the song from German TV, still outlives (almost) the craziness.

the dog from baskerville turns out to be a cute yawning lap dog, Cindy & Bert are standing around like stoned, while funny dressed people are being filmed, who, if I'm not mistaken, blabber about each other (1:30) ... bizarro total.
PS. apropos bad cover-versions, here again the note on shit-piss nice list.
