playlist) on Billboard's Hot 100 Singles chart.

When more success did not follow in the wake of "Follow Him", Peggy tried her luck with a string of
German-language songs, such as "Memories of Heidelberg", "Mit 17 hat man noch Träume", "In Der Carnaby St.",
"Hey, das ist Musik für mich" and "Es ist schwer dich zu vergessen", among others. They were immediate hits
in Germany and other countries. To this day, she retains a very loyal following in Germany. Her enormous
talents are not known to the world at large, so please give these videos the special attention they deserve.
