 "Japan ist weit", the German cover version of Alphaville's No.1 hit "Big in Japan",  was Sandra's first try as  
 a solo artist after she separated from the trio Arabesque. Unfortunately it was a total flop (only 125 singles  were sold, although many thousands were produced and now are a much wanted collector's item) but if it  had been a success, who knows if Sandra had ever become the international pop star we know with "Maria  Magdalena"? Probably it is not really that unfortunate that "Japan ist weit" flopped...
