Bibi und Tina Essentials
If you're a German child—or you have a German child—then you've likely sung along to the gentle harmonies of Bibi und Tina, a pair of radio characters from the early ‘90s who became Hannah Montana-like sensations in the ‘00s and ‘10s. This playlist samples the best of the Bibi und Tina live films, their up-to-date pop-rock beats replacing the jangly sound of the old cartoons. "Bester Sommer" celebrates good times and young friendship with synths as joyous as its lyrics, and "Ordinary Girl" is a crisp piano ballad in the style of Dido. "Tohuwabohu" even invokes Shakira, its syncopated drums shaping a rhythm the whole family can get down to.
