:-)) ja Du hast recht! Singt da Bowie wirklich selber in Deutsch? ...thank you for Bowie in german...like it ♡
You could surf down the Rhine to this, I'm sure
@LoveCanNeverLie Es IST Bowie! Er behandelt sie gut, nicht wahr?
@philipnareike "SURF MARELADEN!!" Ich WUSSTE dass ich etwas vergessen!!!
@philipnareike ...* " marmeladen" :-)
Eine kleine #SurfWoche
:-)) jaaa, hat er gut gemacht!
@LoveCanNeverLie Ja!! :-D
@philipnareike Ich WEISS , dass du halb Deutsch sind! :-) haha!! Wenn wollen sie "Englisch" surfwoche starten?
Ich denke Donnerstag. Ja?
Vas ist das? Das ist wiener schnitzel! (are we speaking German? If so, that's the only German I know other than a few Rammstein lyrics. I picked it up from a longtime friend who took German and value it greatly. :)
I only managed broken English Im afraid
He is certainly singing it with passion in his voice..
wow! well, there's nothing more proper than Heroes being sung in German, considering the period, history, all and all :) Great find! Groß
@philipnareike JA! JA!! Ich bin dabei !! =D
@shiningsun2k @Sid_Bonkers @Axol Das ist fantastisch! Ja Ja!!
@BladeRunner DANKE!! :-) Sie sind ein viertel Deutsch. Ja? :-)
@KerryEJordan Ich bin froh sie tun, Kerry!
@debutch jawohl! ;)
Man könnte natürlich auch sagen, dass es nur deshalb so "kraftvoll, dramatisch und emotional klingt", weil man kaum ein Wort versteht. :) Jedenfalls eine 'große' Geste!
I thought, just for a second, you might have gone with a "what-if" coda.......What if Bowie had have persuaded Marlene to sing "Helden" in "Just a Gigolo"? Can you hear her, perched on a stool, behind that veil.....
"Dann sind wir Helden
An diesem Tag".
@paulgdaly Was eine brilliante "Whatif" idee!! Warum habe ich nicht daran gedacht? :-)
@Floressas Ich glaube ich habe rumpelte wurde!! =D
@aldusd @LoveCanNeverLie @ada23 @philipnareike @shiningsun2k @Sid_Bonkers @Axol @KerryEJordan @BladeRunner @Floressas @paulgdaly I had this perculiar dream yesterday that I woke up German. Thank God it wasn't true. I barely know what I'm talking about when I'm English.........
I am with @Sid_Bonkers ..think I understood the word weird???
@shiningsun2k thank you for the laugh out loud moment....I think you said all the German I also know..
Wonderful. The song was recorded in Berlin, after all, yes?
@christineb (gasps...) you're speaking my kind of language!... :-)
@clementix It HAD to be! :-)
@debutch First, I can't thank you enough for sharing that amazing Elvis Punk story - still have a hard time buying into it as I'm a big Elvis and Sex Pistols fan and never heard of it - regardless - fabulous and I thank you for taking the time to share...second..who doesn't LOVE David Bowie?!
I think it's just me but one should listen to the song..right??? Then when you hit "love" you really mean it - like this is in German:) See, I listened...
I don't spreken de duatch j'parlez french - barely - LOL
@lesakramer5 I agree with you on what you just said about actually listening to the song before clicking on the button..there's a few people who just assume they like something because they've heard it before and don't bother to actually listen to it again in the moment.that annoys me...there's even a few people here who just press the button without even knowing the song at all..that annoys me even more..they're just pretending to love it..I don't understand these people..they are fake lovers.
@lesakramer5 First, I'm not surprised you haven't heard of the "Elvis/Punk" story before. That's because it was me who made the whole thing up! =D Secondly, I'm really pleased that you enjoyed it...makes it all worthwhile for me! :-) Thirdly, I'm impressed with your opinion on listening/clicking "loves" I have, in the past, had 10 minute songs posted on TIMJ & received a "love" ONE minute after I posted it!...Aah well, they're only trying to be nice, I suppose....:-)
@philipnareike @lesakramer5 Yes Phil, I know all about 'fake lovers'.... Oooh, what am I saying?...Yes, they should all be taken outside at dawn & shot ( preferably with an air-rifle...just to make it more painful LOL! )
@darylcat It sounds 'fresh' hearing it this way, doesn't it? :-)
@debutch Recently read a "bio" of Berlin, the city not the band, and there was a fine chapter on Bowie in Berlin and the genesis of "Helden". And a terrific piece on Dietrich on the set of "Just a Gigolo". And I'm never far from meditating on Marlene.
@philipnareike I second that emotion.
@paulgdaly I think you've sold " Just a gigolo" to me now. Intriguing....
@debutch NOOOOOOO! The only damn thing in it is Dietrich's ten minutes.
@paulgdaly oh well, that's made it easier for me then. Thanks!
Mein Pferd ist krankel .Thats all I can remember of my school days German lessons
@BeeBee What more do you need to get by in Germany?
