Answer: Red Song Titles

"99 Red Balloons" (1984) - Nena

The original German version of this song, "99 Luftballons" was part of Nena's self-titled album, released in 1983. After achieving success in England and Japan, Nena released the English version in 1984, which added the 'red' to make it work with the number of syllables - that and it made more sense than 'air balloons,' which is a direct translation from 'luftballons.' The English version of the song reached number one in Canada, the UK, and Ireland.

"Little Red Corvette" (1983) - Prince
