with help from
Frank Becking (guitar) see the YouTube clip below

As most will know Ms Kerner & her drummer boyfriend Rolf moved to West Berlin in 1981 & met some others to become Nena (although she'd been known by her nickname Nena since the age of 3 [Nina is Spanish for little girl]

The band Released 1 Lp & 4 45's (this being the 3rd, both tracks were lifted from the LP)
Tell Me Your Name is one of only a few tracks that is not written/co written by Rainer. Instead it's by Michael Munder (who had a track "Bänke Für Den Park" on the 1981 -VA LP Alles Aus Hagen)
