Here is my present knowledge of German music: Brahms, Wagner, Rammstein, Marlene Dietrich, "O Tannenbaum" and Krautrock. Does Hüsker Dü count? They use umlauts in their name, so... Oh right, and mustn't forget Milli Vanilli

Recommendations welcome :)

Tangerine Dream! One of the greatest, if not the greatest, electronic rock bands.

I also kind of like Popol Vuh.

Did I ever tell you that Sayabara was given a marriage proposal once?

No. Please go on if Sayabara is ok with it.

Well, A long time ago Sayabara met a very militaristic-dictatorship, and that country really seemed to like her. But she knew better. He just wanted to absorb her into his own nation, and then leave her all alone. He tried the same with many more nations. She was devastated after finding out and spent a long time feeling depressed. Thats the reason why it takes her so long to form friendships or relationships with others.

The 2 songs that come to mind when I hear “German songs” are Major Tom - Völlig losgelöst and 99 Luftballons.

She's right :/

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OMrwcix41sY

A few songs I recommend by Eisbrecher -

Eisbar, Automat, Unschuldsengel, Eiskalt erwischt and Phosphor.

Groovy. Thanks for the suggestions for other Eisbrecher songs, I'll give them a spin.

I'd not heard of Falco before. At first, I wasn't feeling the song you linked, but as it went on, I really began to dig it. I think the video helped convey the humor present in it. And just what the heck is going on it that video, anyway? It's nuts. I guess the title translates to "Blood Sausage" or something? That's a food I've had the pleasure to enjoy on numerous occasions.

Oh right, Tangerine Dream. I knew they were some sort of European, but not German. Not a lot of vocals present to give it away, if I recall... :P

I didn't know about Popul Vuh, but looking them up, I know some of the Werner Herzog films they've written scores for: "Aguirre, the Wrath of God" and "Nosferatu." And I can definitely recall the feeling of those scores.

Ah yes, how could I have forgotten "99 Luftballons"? Such a classic. As a kid, my introduction was the 90's pop punk cover by Goldfinger, a band I was into in my youth:

I've definitely heard that "Major Tom" song many times before, but didn't know who did it. I believe it gets used in movies, too. It's really interesting, at various points floaty and bouncy and cool and sweet. Interesting band. Is it a reference to Bowie's "Space Oddity" (ground control to major tom)?

Attention time travelers: Any if you got a spare flux capacitor? Mine blew out somewhere around 1999 and it won’t be invented for another hundred years. Can trade lost texts from the Library of Alexandria for it. Serious inquiries only

His big hit was Rock Me Amadeus. His other song I like is Der Kommissar. And the title means Viennese Blood, he stole the name from the classical tune.

It’s made by Peter Schilling, and like 99 Luftballons, it’s popularity caused it to get an English translation as linked below.

It is indeed inspired by David Bowie’s character Major Tom from Space Oddity.
