99.9999999% of German music sucks, but of the 0.00000001% that is good, it’s like REALLY good. There is no middle ground with german music. It either really SUCKS or it really ROCKS.
Here is the basic categories of German music.
1. It’s like most of German pop is in the 80s, the bad 80s.
Ever wonder why David Hasselhof is so popular in Germany, but not the rest of the world? David Hasselhof is pure 80s–bad 80s. Germans love it. So much of their pop music sounds like really bad 80s music.
2. German singers is like me singing
You don’t want to hear me sing. Only a couple years ago did I even realize what singing on key was. Not that I can even do it. But I didn’t even know that existed until I played Karoke Revolution. I’m half German. So there you go.
I feel like there should be a point three. But I can’t think of one.
Yes, it’s unfair to categorize all German music under suckage. But seriously, there are about 1,000,000 German albums with no good songs.
What about that 0.00000001% of German music that is good? I like to focus on the good, not the bad. This post was about the bad. Let’s look at the good. I like looking at good. Good is good. Here are some good German Christmas songs:
(FYI, these links are supposed to jump you over to iTunes. They aren’t working for me in Firefox, but they work in Safari. Internet Explorer? I have no idea.)
Not available on iTunes:
‚Ä¢¬†”Was bringt der Dezember” by Rolf Zuckowski
‚Ä¢¬†”Morgen kommt der Weihnachtsmann” by Rundfunk-Kinderchor Leipzig
However, these are all Christmas songs. Germans can do Christmas. But what about regular songs? I’ve tried searching all over the iTunes store for some non-christmas German songs, but can’t find any. I’ve tried searching for German Pop. German rap. German ich. German dance. German alternative. If anyone knows of any German music that is good. Please let me know.
