Marteria - Marteria - Kids (2 Finger an den Kopf) (>> Lyrics)
Do you also have one of those friends who after school got stuck in student mode and wonders why no one really wants to hang out anymore? This song is about him/her.

Shaban & Käptn Peng - Sie mögen sich (>> Lyrics)
A rap song about a very unusual love story. It starts with both partners turning into foxes, and that's only the beginning :)

Blumfeld - Tausend Tränen Tief (>> Lyrics)
When the legends of intellectual German rock music decided to produce an album that contains mainly love songs, many of their fans were irritated.

A rock song as an ode to destruction. And isolation. And Berlin. And Vianna. You need to hear it to get what I'm talking about.

Reinhard Mey - Über den Wolken (>> Lyrics)
German Schlager music might not be everyone's cup of tea, but even haters of the genre hum along when this song from 1974 is on the radio.
