Wollt ihr das Bett in Flammen sehen
wollt ihr in Haut und Haaren untergehen
ihr wollt doch auch den Dolch ins Laken stecken
ihr wollt doch auch das Blut vom Degen lecken

That was pretty cool.

I still prefer the Cookie Monster's version.

I like me some Rammstein just fine, but I discovered a while ago that the only way I can continue to enjoy it is if I never look up the translations. It's fun, crunchy music, but if you look up the actual words you find out they're just... trite. Vacuous and trite, like an angry Hallmark card.

Now I just assume he's growling about whatever I happen to be annoyed with at the time and leave it at that. I'm happier not knowing.

I'm asking my friends who are in an acappella group to consider adding Du Hast to their repertoire now that I've seen this.

I'd like to hear an a cappella "March of the Pigs".

I love these things!

When we lived on the east coast, my sister was old enough (and good enough) to get into fancy regional choirs where they did all these wonderful showy things: voices standing in for other instruments, voices making sound effects. Wild exciting stuff. Experimental weird things. Fun, ridiculous arrangements of songs choirs just "didn't do".

Then we moved to California and I got old enough to get into a fancy choir and all we ever did was the Silver Swan.

This somehow cheered me up this morning. Thanks!

I'll make a note of bringing it up to my music director.

This would be so much better if they added something.
Like maybe some guitars.
Or a keyboard.
And perhaps a drum kit.
A bass might also add a certain something.
And then if like 80% of the people who were on stage just went and sat down.
That might be better.

That was pretty cool. It needs more bass, Till Lindemann hitting his knee like an angry gorilla, and explosions.

But it was still pretty cool.

That was awesome.

Even if nobody burst into flames.

That was great! Now do some a capella Einstuerzende Neubauten.

That guy's singing 'digga dum' where it's clearly 'jugga jug'.

A heretofore unheard outtake from Björk's Medúlla? Terrrrrific!

I prefer to think of it as death metal for 5 year-olds. I can barely speak German and it's only slightly above my comprehension level. I mean, the lyrics for "Sonne" are straight off of Sesame Street. Which is kinda why I like it.

An a cappella rendition of Du Hast by the Warblers? HELL YES. That would be amazing.

Huh. Actually having the first meeting of my new a cappella group tonight. We were going to do a Carole King cover for fun, but I think this is a better idea.


NEIN.

I've avoided looking up any translations for Sigur Ros songs for that very reason. As is, I find them profoundly emotionally evocative. I'm torn between the idea that if I understood the lyrics the goodness quotient would double vs. suddenly being ruined by association with dumb lyrics that I can't get out of my head.

One of them needs to wear one of those face-mounted flame-throwers you see near the end of Feuer Frei.
