“Das Model” (spelling on album: “Das Modell”; English version title: “The Model”) is a song recorded by the electro-pop group Kraftwerk in 1978; written by musicians Ralf Hütter and Karl Bartos, with artist Emil Schult collaborating on the lyrics.
It is featured on the album, Die Mensch-Maschine; English version title: The Man-Machine.
It is one of the band’s most accessible and melodic songs.
First released as a 7″ single in Germany (B-side: “Neonlicht”), under its English translation the song was eventually included on the B-side of the “Computer Love” single released in July 1981, which reached #36 in the UK charts.
When radio DJs started playing the B-side, EMI re-issued the single in December 1981 — apparently against the band’s wishes — with “The Model” as the A-side.
It reached #1 in February 1982 and spent a total of 21 weeks in the top 75 of the UK singles charts.
German metal band Rammstein covered the German version of “Das Model” in 1997 as “Das Modell”.
It was released as a non-album single.
“Das Modell” is introduced by a French phrase spoken by film editor Mathilde Bonnefoy: “Mesdames et messieurs, nous avons l’honneur ce soir, de vous présenter la nouvelle collection de Rammstein” which loosely translates to “Ladies and Gentlemen, tonight we have the honor to present you with the new collection of Rammstein” — something that one would expect to hear about a clothing collection. The beginning sounds like a fashion catwalk. Someone belches then a bump and a scream is heard, followed by laughter and cameras clicking, apparently to sound as if the model stumbled and fell.
The single contains three non-album tracks taken from the Sehnsucht recording sessions.
In the special version of “Alter Mann”, Bobo (Christiane Hebold) sings alongside Till Lindemann in the chorus. Also included is the computer game “Asche zu Asche” for Microsoft Windows.
The song was first covered by Snakefinger on his debut LP Chewing Hides the Sound in 1979.
Noise rock pioneers Big Black covered the song on their 1987 album Songs About Fucking.
It has also been covered by The Cardigans, Terrorvision (with Die Cheerleader), Carter USM, Zippy Kid, Canasta, The Divine Comedy, Electric Six, Yat-Kha, Balanescu Quartet, Hikashu, Ride, Chris Whitley, Supernaut, Aviador Dro, Veronika Zemanová, Eläkeläiset and Zoot Woman, Scala & Kolacny Brothers, Russian experimental surf rock band Messer Chups, Demolition Group, Wunderkind, the Dutch band Treble Spankers, Fink, English Folk Band Tickled Pink, Sopor Aeternus & the Ensemble of Shadows (sung in Latin, and released under the title ‘Modela Est’) as well as a French version by Canadian electro=pop duo Lola Dutronic.
Argentinian dance act Clotta (“La modelo”), Adrian Edmondson’s folk band the Bad Shepherds covered the song on their debut album Yan, Tyan, Tethera, Methera! released in 2009.
Brazilian singer Seu Jorge covered the song on his 2010 covers album “Seu Jorge and Almaz”, and so did Tangerine Dream in their 2010 album Under Cover – Chapter One.
