Added DiffLines:

* GratuitousSpanish: "Pistolero"- with more of it in the English version than the German. (There's also a version ''entirely'' in Spanish, that's not gratuitous.)

Added DiffLines:

* CompositeCharacter: "Loreley" gives its title character the backstory of the Clemens Brentano version of [[Myth/{{Lorelei}} the story]] (about a beautiful woman who has many pursuers but despairs at her inability to be with the man she actually loves), but rather than committing suicide, she takes on the EnthrallingSiren aspects of the Heinrich Heine version.

* SpiritualSuccessor : PowerMetal . Despite not beeing Metal, Dschingis Khan had all the [[BadAss badassery]], [[RatedMForManly manlyness]] and Trueness of ancient warriors in their lyrics and outfits, we would later find in PowerMetal. And yes, they even did it before {{Manowar}}.

* LongRunner: ''Over thirty years''. Most musical groups would sell their families for a run that long, even with the multiple lineup changes.

Formed within just few months in 1979, Dschinghis Khan was the product of the disco boom and following on the heels of other German-produced bands such as Boney M, Arabesque, and Silver Convention. Their songs were based on historical people and places. The group was formed by music producer Ralph Siegel AKA Mr. Eurovision. Siegel was apparently obsessed with making the next Music/{{ABBA}}. Their name is the German spelling of "UsefulNotes/GenghisKhan," the name of the song they sang in their introductory performance in the Eurovision Song Contest. While they didn't win Eurovision, the group achieved great success in Europe, Russia, Israel, Australia, and Japan.
