After The Fire – “Der Kommissar” (1982)
Originally cut by Austrian singer Falco, “Der Kommissar” was also made famous when the British band After The Fire made an English version. It’s one of the songs on this list that happens within the Cold War more than it is about the Cold War. Supposedly, it’s partially about cocaine. But the title refers to a police captain in Berlin, and its narrative takes place in the city whose division physically symbolized the whole era.
