“Herr Wunderbar” by Tanya Hyde – Disco Video Mix by Glenn Rivera
Tanya Hyde is a vocalist for a band called The Tormentors – from St. Albans in Hertfordshire. Their 1979 single “Herr Wunderbar” from 1979 was featured on the 1980 Disconet Program (Volume 3 Program 8) as the opening segue to Casey Jones’ Eurodance Medley – introducing a new energy for dance floors. It was a huge hit in my club and duo copies of the singles were required to create a lengthier dance segment. It is an obvious tribute to German actress Marlene Dietrich and her cinematic beauty in 1930’s films. The outward vocal works wonders in the sequencer fills and heavy drum rolling throughout this piece.
I have taken scenes from the 1934 film “The Scarlet Empress” starring Marlene Dietrich and used scenes as a video play for this stunning woman. It is a short but climatic feel thanks to the build of Tanya’s great 80s dance track.
The film was directed by Josef von Sternberg
