Song/Video of the day

Jenny you just made my day - if not even the whole week - and so I don't mind that with your post I just lost a bet :thumbsup: :bow:

"Rebell" is a song with very good lyrics, I remember doing a translation here, I see if I can find it again...

"Unrockbar" hasn't anything to do with a bar, but is a fictitious expression meaning something like "unrockable", about a girlfriend who only listens to light Pop ("since you live with me / every day there sounds Shakira through the house / I can't bear it anymore / I think I'll kick you out")

btw Die Ärzte have, for a Rock band, a relativly large following of female fans, among others because of songs like this:

1/2 Lovesong

I know you will miss me

even if you have to go now

no more violins when we're kissing

I just didn't know

I hope my words are not making it worse

Just forget your pride for a minute

I know you still love me

Should that be it? (like in a Lovesong)

Can't we think up a solution? (like in a Lovesong)

The reality is much too small (for a Lovesong)

And I only love you

Much has been depraved to habit

but that's a normal risk

Routine has taken its place

until we couldn't live with it anymore

I hope my words are not making it worse

Just forget your pride for a minute

I know you still love me

Should that be it? (like in a Lovesong)

Can't we think up a solution? (like in a Lovesong)

The reality is much too small (for a Lovesong)

And I only love you

I know you will miss me -

I'm already missing you

I'm missing the violins too, miss kissing you

Nothing on this world that could replace you

I hope my words are not making it worse

Just forget your pride for a minute

I know you still love me

Should that be it? (like in a Lovesong)

Can't we think up a solution? (like in a Lovesong)

The reality is much too small (for a Lovesong)

And I only love you

And I only love you...

just for the record (not only to you Jenny) if or when somebody wants to have a translation of a German song (doesn't matter if I put up a link or you found it on your own) I'm very happy to do it for you...

you only have to ask! the worst thing I will tell you would be something like "I don't have time today and will do it tomorrow" :) :)

sometimes I will do and have done some of my own accord, but the feedback has usually been very slim, and I won't bother if nobody reads them anyway... :P

so don't be too shy to ask :)

that song ("Cry for Love") is actually one of the (if not THE) most popular Anti-Nazi song there is!

Your violence is just a silent cry for love

your Jump Boots are longing for tenderness

you never learned to articulate yourself

and your parents never had time for you

oh, oh, oh - *sshole!

Edited by Guest
forgot the filter - but notice that I never heard this passage *bleeped* in the song, neither in the Radio or MTV or anywhere...

I kinda liked this one...

Die Ärzte - Schrei nach Liebe

someone DID ask for a translation, and since I'm awfully lazy, I googled first :grin: ;)

You are really stupid

That's why you feel good

Hate is your grand attitude and

Your blood is always boiling

Everything must be explained `cause

You don't know a single thing.

I don't think you even know what

The word 'attitude' means

Your violence is just a silent cry for love

Your Jump Boots* long for tenderness,

You never learned how to articulate yourself,

And your parents never had time for you

...ohhh... a**hole!

Why are you afraid of carressing, what's with all this nonsense?

Under the laurel wreath bound with acorns, I know there beats a heart,

And romantic isn't just grey theory to you

Between "Störkraft" and the "Onkelz" hovers a Kuschelrock LP! **

Your violence is just a silent cry for love

Your Jump Boots* long for tenderness,

You never learned how to articulate yourself,

And your parents never had time for you

...ohhh... a**hole!

Because you've got problems nobody wants to know about,

Just because you're afraid to hug, You're a fascist

You don't have to lash your selfhatred on to others,

So that no one realizes what a nice guy*** you are... ohhh...

Your violence is just a silent cry for love

Your Jump Boots* long for tenderness,

You never learned how to articulate yourself,

And your girlfriend never had time for you

...ohhh...

a**hole! a**hole! a**hole!

* I don't know about the US, but in Germany Jump Boots are very closely associated with the right-wing skinhead scene (unless you're in the army)

** Störkraft and the "Böhse Onkelz" are/were two bands closely thought of as right-wing (Onkelz) or downright fascist (Störkraft).

in current live versions they often sing "between Störkraft and the others" - not to reverse their oppinion, but to further degrade the Onkelz by not even stating their name...

"Kuschelrock" (lit "Snuggle Rock") is a compilation of Romantic Soft Rock

*** in current live versions they usually sing something along the lines "So that no one realizes what a stupid pig you are"
