Lass die Liebe regieren!

Alles Gute zum Valentinstag, liebe listeners! I enjoyed my Valentine’s theme show this past Sunday – what could be better than chilling in the studio for an hour playing gorgeous German songs about love? Here’s the playlist:

Of these, I’ve been utterly enchanted with “Weil Liebe dort beginnt” lately. There’s something so disarming about the opening lines. “Im Morgengrauen, die U-Bahn nehmen, durch leergefegte Bahnhofshallen geh’n…” The softness of the voice meeting the depth of drums and bass right at the word “Bahnhofshallen,” it just strikes straight to my heart and my desire to be back in Berlin. Then the rising emotion contained in these ecstatic words: “Mit zugekniff‘nen Augen, vom ersten Sonnenschein, stürzen wir uns in den Tag hinein…” This is truly a great piece of songwriting.

Also, while Die Toten Hosen’s “Auflösen” is a great piece of music in itself, the music video is pure art and really takes the song’s beauty to the next level. Campino’s duet vocals with Birgit Minichmayr are raw, real and incredibly sexy. The two have great onscreen chemistry as well in the video—they met while both acting in Brecht’s Die Dreigroschenoper. I had the awesome experience of seeing the play in Berlin, but I wish I’d gotten to see their version! In any case, check out this intimate and stunning music video, directed by German film god Wim Wenders.

Also, I’ve got a couple of the custom stickers I ordered left to give away! Show the world your love for deutsche Musik. :] To win one, leave a comment below! Winners will be drawn at random.
