4.0 out of 5 stars This David is a GOLIATH May 1, 2013
Format:Audio CD
When "Knight Rider" and "Bay Watch" ended, I felt a distinct void in my life. Without Hasselfhoff's bouncing pecs gracing my television, life simply felt drab and unfulfilling.

Imagine my delight when I discovered that Hasselhoff had not disappeared at all, but rather REEMERGED, this time as a serious force in music. It reminded me of when Leonard Nimoy had recorded his stirring tribute to Tolkien, "The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins." It was that moving and momentous for me.

Honestly, few Americans truly appreciate how Hasselhoff singularly reshaped the entire landscape of German music. Auf wiedersehen, Amadeus. Hasselhoff ist hier!

I particularly recommend the track "Do the Limbo Dance" but am giving the album just four stars because I'm a bit disappointed that he didn't stick with the original German version, "Tanzen Limbo, Ya!"

5.0 out of 5 stars A little something for everyone on this disc! November 22, 2002
Format:Audio CD
There is little doubt now that David Husselshaft is a major force in the music business these days. I've already been a fan for many years, but an amazing thing happened recently which I have to share. The doctor said my dog Cherish had only days to live. Desperate for any sign of recovery, I played this CD in the garage for him 24/7, and not only did my dog die, but so did 2 cats and all of my plants. My neighbor came down with a rare form of stomach virus, the one causes massive cramping and explosive diarrhea. Boy did I prove that doctor wrong!
The song "Hot Shot City" is particularly good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Achtung! Achtung! Der GENIUS of Herr Hasselhoff!! December 31, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Economic nationalists throughout the country shuddered when the Commerce Department announced a Q3 trade imbalance comfortably exceeding $100 billion, the highest on record. We buy our electronics from Japan, our confections from France, and our oil from the Persian Gulf. So why must we import the cream of our own culture from abroad? We don't store the Constitution in Germany. We don't launch the Space Shuttle from China. So why must we buy our Hasselhoff from distant foreign lands? Demand for this benchmark piece of Americana will surely send the trade economy reeling even closer to the abyss.
Its pending stupefying popularity notwithstanding, this is not an album without flaws, as flaws are inevitable when one takes on the impossible task of distilling Hasselhoff to a single disk. This is, after all, akin to reducing Aristotle to a lone pamphlet - nay, a matchbook cover. Because while this CD does include every Hasselhoff song that topped the charts in ninety countries or more, it was really the deep album work that made Hasselhoff synonymous with underground edge, incendiary lyrics, and youthful angst the world over. The poets who found their calling in the deeply nuanced lyrics of 1984's "Night Rocker" will be crestfallen to see that album underrepresented beyond its touchstone hits. Jungle-based rebels from Columbia to Burma who viewed 1989's "Looking for Freedom" as a clarion call to arms will be outraged that the entire second side of that inflammatory album is absent (with the inevitable exception of "Flying on the Wings of Tenderness"). And lovers who exchanged their lifetime vows to the ballads of "Crazy For You" will be devastated to see that only two of them are included here (even "I Wanna Move to the Beat of Your Heart" is inexplicably omitted!).

1.0 out of 5 stars hot shot August 22, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I now own three CD's "looking for - Best of David Hasselhof (which is an import - i.e. I imported it from elsewhere) David Hasselhof - The very best" and "The best of David Hasselhof"
I also own a table, a chair, a tea set left to me by my gran, a curtain, three pair of underpants, a small fridge that doen not work, a black and white television, a bicycle pump, a shirt, two pairs of grey trousers, a tin of sweetcorn and a hedgehog shaped shoe scraper. I own a knife a fork and a coffee cup, a tie (black) a pair of odd socks and a pair of matched socks, one cassette of calming sounds designed to help me stop smoking (I have never smoked) a newspaper from june 1987, a carrier bag from the co-op, a plastic wallet in which I keep my bus pass and any money I ever obtain through whatever means (usually favours to desperate men), a towel, a bar of imperial leather dating from 1996 and a pair of brown shoes.
I think when I get a cd player I will like this album most out of all of my posessions because the reviews of it are so good.
If I ever have any more possessions I will try to let you know.
I expect the song "hot shot city" is particularly good

5.0 out of 5 stars The very epitome of musical godliness. June 20, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Twice the ruggedness of mortal man, ten times the talent of any other artist, Hasselhoff dazzles on this CD. Every track has been plucked from the heavens and trembles with vigor and force. God Himself could not record as good a greatest hits album like this, and if He were to listen to all 17 tracks on this compilation, He would refrain from striking me down for blasphemy. The song "Hot Shot City" is particularly good.

5.0 out of 5 stars As moist and tender as brownies May 26, 2002
Format:Audio CD
What more could be said about David Hasselhoff's looks. Nothing. So it's only icing on the cake that he also has musical talent. And not just your average, Dave Grohl-can-sing kind of talent; Hasselhoff towers above the average singer with his rapid-style singsong rapping. The inflections he gives betray a profound understanding of subtlety, the restraint of a genius. He purposely, almost defiantly avoids hitting the "correct" notes on "Flying on the Wings of Tenderness," "Crazy For You," "I Believe," "Wir Zwei Allein," "Je T'aime Means I Love You," "Freedom For the World," and "Dance Dance D'amour," as well as on the rest of the songs on the CD. His mastery of the English language not enough to sate his hunger for lyrics, he crosses over into German, French and even Swahili in some of the songs, giving speakers of those languages something new to revile. Hasselhoff's contribution to musicdom is immeasurable, so you might as well put away whatever measuring devices you were about to use on him.
The song 'Hot Shot City' is particularly good.
