Beowulf meets Nena

After the first 18 lines of the General Prologue to Chaucer's Canterbury Tales have been set to California Dreaming, now we have a video in which Nena's 99 Red Balloons meets good ole' Beowulf. Good music, and a lesson in what happens when you have to fit the epic poem into a few stanzas of contemporary English. Still, lots of fun.
