The German week revolved around Michael Schumachers Return to Formula 1 at the age of 40 and .....I had , during the week had a complaint about last weeks Around the World in Eighty Tunes.....Sie Liebt den DJ is apparently just about on a par with , say music by Westlife or John Barrowman....Nothing wrong with it but a little MOR....and not reflective of modern German Music.
