Klaus Nomi is the debut album by German countertenor Klaus Nomi. Side one. "Keys of Life" (Klaus Nomi) – 2:26. Lightning Strikes" (Lou Christie, Twyla Herbert) – 2:59. The Twist" (Hank Ballard) – 3:10. Nomi Song" (Kristian Hoffman) – 2:47. You Don't Own Me" (John Medora, David White) – 3:39. Side two. "The Cold Song" (Henry Purcell, John Dryden) – 4:03. Wasting My Time" (Klaus Nomi, Scott Woody) – 4:16. Total Eclipse" (Kristian Hoffman) – 3:29. Nomi Chant" (Man Parrish) – 1:53.

Both the cover and the music within lean heavily to the dramatic - Nomi's delivery is all in a very operatic falsetto, though most of the music itself is more of the early-'80s European dance school (indeed, one of his collaborators here was Man Parrish, probably best-known for his later work with Man 2 Man).

A description of tropes appearing in Klaus Nomi (Album) well. The song "Samson And Delilah" ends with a spaceship taking off. The Cover Changes the Gender: Spectacularly averted with "You Don't Own Me": "Don't say I can't play with other BOYS!".
