3.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Delightful May 18, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I'll admit it: I bought this disk only because of the song that was played on the Volkswagen commercial. I wasn't expecting a whole lot else on this.
How pleased I was to discover some other equally fun songs on here! "Boom Boom" and "Hearts are Trump" are two great songs that follow the famous "Da Da Da." "Anna" has some neat strange background sounds going on.
I love the song "Drei Mann Im Doppelbett." I'm not exactly sure what it means (I know the translation is: "3 men in a double-bed") since the same 4 words are just repeated over and over again, but I sense that it means that they are living in cramped quarters. Hey, don't think about this song too much...just listen to it and love it!
Trio did the best rendition of "Tutti-Frutti" since Val Kilmar sang it in the movie "Top Secret." I'm not trying to say that Trio's sounds anything like it. This is totally unique and completely hilarious.
This disk is worth buying just for these few great songs. I didn't go ga-ga for any of the other ones (well, "Tooralooralooraloo" was pretty good too I guess).
It won't become your favorite disk, but if you liked "Da Da Da," this will give you some other equally-good songs.

1.0 out of 5 stars fahrvergnugen ruins a great album re-release . . . June 21, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I absolutely love this band-- they did some things with music that influenced me years and years later as I played my own music--but Mercury records screwed up the chance to turn new generations of listeners onto this great German Art/pop band by making the re-release of Da-Da-Da (the album) a "best of", instead of actually making the original 1982 album available.
This is NOT Trio's brilliant 1982 Da-Da-Da release-- it was Mercury's attempt at repackaging an already great album for the fahrvergnugen-inclined of 1997 and making a quick buck-- a lazy, sloppy, badly-packaged quick buck.
The original Da-Da-Da is available here at Amazon (#B0000AXM3G) as a 2-disc $56 deluxe import from Universal Music Group (which Mercury was absorbed into)-- you should go to [...] and tell them to consider releasing this set in the U.S. at a reasonable price.
The first disc is the original album and the 2nd disc is rare, live and demo tracks. -- here's the tracklisting (the * denotes an amazing song you should hear)
1. Achtung, Achtung
2. Ja Ja Ja**
3. Kummer
4. Broken Hearts for You and Me*******
5. Nasty*
6. Energie
7. Sabine Sabine Sabine***
8. da da Ich Lieb Dich Nicht du Liebst Mich Nicht Aha Aha Aha
9. Sunday You Need Love Monday Be Alone*
10. Nur Ein Traum*
11. Ja Ja Wo Geht's Lank Peter Pank Schönen Dank
12. Ya Ya*
13. Paul*
14. Danger Is*
15. Trio*
16. Lady-O-Lady**
17. Halt Mich Fest Ich Werd Verrückt
18. da da I Don't Love You You Don't Love Me Aha Aha Aha
19. da da Ich Lieb Dich Nicht du Liebst Mich Nicht Aha Aha Aha [Extended Version]

4.0 out of 5 stars Sprockets Does The Pixies July 11, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
When you mix SNL's Sprockets with the Pixies what follows is the highly digital, novelty-band Trio. Germany had a ball with them in the mid-80's, however, they somehow reached the USA in the mid-90's with their radio-friendly, commercial jingle "Da Da Da." Nevertheless, beyond their one-hit wonder are other ditties which deserve mentioning: "Hearts Are Trump" has that killer bridge which makes you wanna sing along. "Drei Mann" soars with a whistling melody. There's a knockabout version of Little Richard's "Tutti Frutti," altho not as bad as Pat Boone's version. "Is It Old & Is It New" is somewhat halcyon yet asinine. "Anna" and "Sunday You Need Love" resemble power-pop anthems. And it all ends with an exorbitant rendering of the "Da Da Da" single, but as a whole, the composition remains stimulating.

5.0 out of 5 stars How Weird Was This...Really? May 15, 2001
By Tom
Format:Audio CD
I first heard "Da Da Da" in a high school German class. Atr the time this seemd like the strangest thing I had ever heard. How can almost pathetically simple key board electronics and monotonal vocals pass for music? Yet, with the weird came the hook...somehow it was so very catchy...
I don't recall if it was before of after that date that I first heard "Rock Lobster," but the effect was the same.
At any rate, while Trio may no longer seem weird; and certainly however ground breaking they may have been...the world has certainly seen stranger since...this is fun stuff.
There's great value here: this CD actually includes two LPs, the self titled "Trio," and the subsequent and overlooked "Trio and Error."
Thank Volkswagen for featuring Trio music in its advertising and making this rerelease viable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Trio-JA, JA, JA! March 31, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I remember hearing this band for the first time on a radio program that I used to record at night while I was sleeping (working man, ya know). The show lasted for an hour and my stereo was programmable. Yes, they actually did make cassette tapes that were 120 minutes in length! Stereo manufacturers didn't recommend using them, but I didn't want to miss anything. It ran on the now defunct WYDD out of Pittsburgh. It came on at midnight and lasted for 1 hour, so they called it "The 12/60 Club." It featured music not ordinarily heard on other stations. In fact, this was during the post-punk years of the early '80s, and music that seemed to be rooted or influenced by punk in some way was what they would hit on most of the time, but not always. They played a lot of great stuff, including Trio ("Da Da Da" in particular).
This disc contains the entire "Trio and Error" LP that Mercury released in 1983 (including the edited version of "Da Da Da"), although it's a bit out of sequence. Before that album was released, Mercury issued a six song EP called "Trio" (1982) which contained some material excluded from this disc as well as the full length version of "Da Da Da" contained here. The casualties that didn't make it to this disc are a simpler, more stripped down, raw version of "Anna," "Broken Hearts for You and Me," "Energie," and "Ja Ja Ja" (live performance). "Girl Girl Girl" was new to me upon the purchase of this disc as it was not included on either the EP or LP. If any singles were released, it could've been a b-side.
I think this is a pretty good disc, though. I'm glad to have it.

I bought the original LP when it was released, Trio & Error. Well, I wore that out and couldn't find a new one, back in the day. This is the same thing with one extra Da Da Da. Read more
