You don't Nomi: Klaus Nomi
Most well known for his elegant, but eccentric stage performances, and whimsical soothing voice. His most famous song, that I knew as a child, but never knew it's origin was,
His LOUD appearance has also been a key opponent to his fame and gossip. A mixture of goth, glam rock, avant-garde, and 1800's fashion.
Honestly Klaus reminds me of, singing wise: Tiny Tim and Nina Hagen, appearance: Siouxsie and the Banshees, Pee Wee Herman, and the young Madonna, Wayne Gacy (or pogo the clown) from Marilyn Manson and the spooky kids (era).
He also sang and performed with glam rock goddess David Bowie. They both where adequate friends. It's just an eye pleaser. David being cute, and Klaus being quirky.
It's common that now Klaus is being recognized for his unique appearance. Drag queens and other entertainers are dressing like him and grooving to his tunes. Klaus was also featured in Venture Bros, The well known Adult Swim TV show. People should defiantly listen to ding dong the wicked witch is dead, it's really quite comical and exuberant. Go listen to his music, become a goth alien, make new wave German songs, and most of all, wear what you want and create what you can!
