10 Millionen Partys is the sixth studio album released by Joachim Witt in 1988. It is the first album Witt released after moving to RCA, and sees Witt return to singing German lyrics.[1]

Critical reception[edit]

The album follows Witt's unsuccessful attempt on Moonlight Nights to shift audiences toward jazz and swing with lyrics sung in English. Those English lyrics were criticized by German critics as trite, and they felt the same way about the lyrics on this album. The music was described as a mix between Depeche Mode and the Pet Shop Boys. The album did not enjoy commercial success,[2] nor did the three singles it spawned, "Engel sind zart", "Pet Shop Boy" und "Der Tankwart heißt Lou."[3]
