"Elke" is a punk song by Die Ärzte. It's the seventh track from their 1988 album Das ist nicht die ganze Wahrheit.... The song's lyrics were inspired by an overweight fan and depict a fictitious love story between Urlaub and the eponymous fan. The music is unique, as the first verse is sung slowly and then the song goes to the chorus very abruptly and then progresses with fast singing. This makes it a live favourite, as witnessed by the inclusion of 1988 live version to Das Beste von kurz nach früher bis jetze and the single of 1999.
