6 A song released in 1984 became a sensation on the Internet. It is also known as “the most mysterious song on the Internet.” It is a viral internet phenomenon. Internet users have been making collaborative efforts to find the origins of the song. Despite multiple theories, there is no answer yet.
A man named Darius S. recorded a song in the 1980s from a radio program Musik Für Junge Leute. He did not know the song’s origin. Darius’ sister, Lydia H, posted this song on the Internet in 2007 to find out the artist. Instantly, netizens became curious and started looking for the singer. They labeled it as “the most mysterious song on the Internet.”
The song gained more popularity after Gabriel Da Vieira, a teenager, posted a clip of the song on YouTube in 2019. He also uploaded it to different Reddit music subreddits. Few mentioned that the song was played on the radio program Musik Für Junge Leute by Baskerville.
Recently in July 2020, a Reddit user published the complete list of songs played on the program in 1984. However, after searching the list, netizens realized that the song was not on the list.
