Cover Friday: Robert Haag

Kim Wilde has released many songs during her career. Some of them have been covered by other artists. On Cover Friday, Wilde Life presents cover versions of Kim Wilde songs. This week: Robert Haag.

German singer Robert Haag first made a name for himself in 2014 when he recorded ‘Pommes mit Senf’ (‘Fries with mustard’) together with Markus Becker. The song was a cover of Nick Kamen’s ‘I promised myself’, inspired by a German friend who always sang that song as ‘Pommes mit Senf’. (A kind of Mondegreen in German).

In 2015, Robert tried to follow up this relative success with a cover of Kim Wilde’s ‘Kids in America’ – re-recorded in German as ‘Verliebt in Veronika’ (In love with Veronika’). You can listen to the song here. Quite who Robert Haag is, exactly, we couldn’t find out.
