"Durch den Monsun" (English: Through the Monsoon) and "Monsoon" are songs by German rock band Tokio Hotel. The German version of the song "Durch den Monsun" was released as their debut single in 2005 from their debut album Schrei. A remix of this song was made with Japanese lyrics, and an English version named "Monsoon" was later recorded, and included in their first English album Scream and released as their first English single in 2007.

Monsoon

"Monsoon" was released as their first English single in Europe on May 18, 2007. The vocals and melodies in "Monsoon" are one semitone lower than its German counterpart. This is most likely due to the age at which Bill Kaulitz, the vocalist, recorded the German version. "Monsoon" also appears in the music video game Guitar Hero: World Tour and the European versions of the games Guitar Hero: On Tour and Rock Band.

The song was performed at the MTV Europe Music Awards 2007 in Munich Germany.[1]

Durch den Monsun was named "Best song 2005" at the Austrian Golden Penguin Awards and was also nominated as "Best Single International" at the Amadeus Awards in 2006. In 2007, Durch den Monsun was voted "Single of the Year" at the Golden Penguin Awards in Austria while Monsoon won in the category "Best Video" at the TMF Awards in Belgium. In the following year Monsoon claimed the titles "Best Ringtone" and "Song of the Year" at Los Premios MTV Latinoamérica 2008,[2] "Number 1 of the Year" at TRL Awards (Italy),[3] and was also named "Best Mood Song" and "Song that Stays in your Head" by a Dutch magazine, Hitkrant.[4]

The song is also included in the album "Finding Emo" released by NU 107 a radio station in the Philippines and by MCA Music

Music video

The music video for the German version of the song features a stage looking like it was shot underwater. It starts off with the lead singer Bill Kaulitz holding a black candle sitting next to a broken door with no building behind it, then the candle's flame goes out. Many scenes feature Bill singing underwater and upside down. There is one scene where it looks like the guitarist, Bill's twin brother, Tom Kaulitz is singing along in a mirror like door then disappears. The ending chorus part of the video shows the band playing in rain.

The music video for the English version of the song, "Monsoon", was shot in Cape Town, South Africa in early May 2007. It features scenes of the band in a Bell UH-1 Huey helicopter and then free falling and landing on the ground. After they land, the band members walk to a stage (although scenes of them on the stage are already shown before the free fall scene) and start performing. As the song nears the end and the beat intensifies, a storm rumbles and heavy rain starts to fall on the band as they play. The video also shows scenes of lead singer Bill Kaulitz in the back of a black driver-less Cadillac limousine with a typewriter. Spoiler: He litters.

The video entered the TRL Countdown charts in July 2008.
