Why did this old German cover of Sabbath’s “Paranoid” turn into this?
Lore has it that Black Sabbath wrote and recorded their classic “Paranoid” in a blur, taking just a couple of days from start to finish. Geezer Butler was responsible for lyrics, channeling the rage and confusion he felt as a teenager.
But in Germany, the song took on a whole new meaning thanks to a duo named Cindy and Bert. About a year after Sabbath released “Paranoid” as a single, they offered their own version which they turned into a tale about…Sherlock Holmes–specifically, The Hound of the Baskervilles.
