"Moskau" (German: Moscow) is a German-language single by the German pop-act Dschinghis Khan (known as Genghis Khan in Australia and other countries)[1][2][3][4] released in 1979.

The band also recorded an English version, which they released in 1980 as "Moscow".

Versions[edit]

Moskau – the German-language version[edit]

"Moskau", the German-language version of the song, appears on their 1979 self-titled album Dschinghis Khan and their 1980 album Rom. The album version is six minutes long, while the single version is four and a half minutes long.[5]

Moscow – the English-language version[edit]

The band, under their English-language band name Genghis Khan, released a version of the song with English lyrics entitled "Moscow" in Australia in 1980, the year of the 1980 Moscow Olympics.[1] Australia's Channel 7 used the song as the theme to their television coverage of the Moscow Olympics, and the single was issued locally in a die-cut Channel 7 paper sleeve.[6] The song became a massive hit in Australia, staying at #1 for six weeks.

History[edit]

The song also achieved enormous underground popularity in the Soviet Union. A 15-second clip of the song's performance was shown as a part of the New Year holiday lineup on the state-run TV, leading to the immediate dismissal of the network's director.[7]

In 2006, the song made its video game debut as a playable song in Taiko no Tatsujin Portable 2. It is also a featured track in Just Dance 2014.

It was also played at the opening at Eurovision 2009 at Moscow, Russia for Semi Final 2.
