Plus, a good solid German family would be horrified to learn their Kleine Maedchen was dating a....gasp!!....squaddie! Good grief, I know of good solid British Army families that did everything in their power to prevent their girls from dating any of you lot! LOL

Mind you, it wasn't much different with Canadian soldiers, either.

The thing was, the fathers of these girls were, at one time, young single soldiers themselves so they totally understood what was going on, at least from the young single soldiers perspective.

What was of course ironic, and nobody seemed to want to explore, was the very mothers who came on as rampaging she-bears upon finding out their daughters were dating soldiers, had married soldiers themselves! Interesting what a generation's gap will do.

We had a few of "our girls" date soldiers but mainly they seemed to gravitate towards German guys, much to the chagrin of most of the Canadian teenage boys looking for girlfriends LOL

Oddly enough, while it was not uncommon for Canadian teenage girls to acquire a German boyfriend, few Canadian teenage boys acquired a German girlfriend. Not sure what that was about.

This first number is a hauntingly great number I remember from Germany. It's something I would think that would past muster at any funeral for a veteran or serving member.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OAWfyexuyrQ&feature=fvw


This next one I remember coming out in the 60's. It was always a favourite to be played in the Gasthof. The thing is I remember it being sung by a tenor not a bass as is done here. The pirated Dutch version is done by a tenor.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IrBfZIZzypo&feature=relate

Now this one was always great fun to listen to. As we would all make great rounding motions over our stomachs indicating a pregnacy. Yes Memories of Heidelburg are Memories of you.

Of course one may have enjoyed Amanda Lear who had a big following in Germany in the seventies and still pulls a crowd today.

"Was He or wasn't She, that is the question?"

Umm! Pity I am too late to ask Salvador Dali.

Admitantly, I did like the voice!

I was always puzzled by the Germans and their music preferences. Here is another, 'Heino.'

Heino, geeze I'd forgotten all about him. Didn't he wear those dark glasses all the time to hide big buggy eyes?

Good grief, Amanda Lear! As far as I can recall, she only issued one LP...a big disco favourite...and the story was she was an M-to-F transsexual. Whether it was just marketing (this was the era of genderbending rock stars and glam rock after all), I don't know. That odd voice certainly would suggest she was....

the big groups back when I was a teenager in Germany were (in no particular order):

The Three Degrees ("Wwhen Will I See You Again?")

Barry White (okay, not technically "a group")

Anything coming out of The Glorious Sound of Philadelphia -- sort of a take-off on Motown, or a challenge to Motown actually, all R&B/Soul. Motown ultimately won out....

Talking about Heino (odd character) made me think of James Last and the dance albums he cranked out. Sort of an upbeat German version of Lawrence Welk and very popular stuff at Schutzenfests and Oktoberfests. Nice change from yer basic oompa-pa-pa.

On the heavier front --

+ Black Sabbath ("Paranoid" was big)
+ Jethro Tull ("Aqualung")
+ Iron Butterfly (their only good piece was "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" -- 27 minutes of it!!)
+ Yes
+ Genesis
+ The Who (of course! "Pinball Wizard" was really big)
+ Jimi Hendrix ("Are You Experienced?", "All Along The Watchtower", "Purple Haze" etc).
+ Mott The Hoople
+ Creedence Clearwater Revival (Okay, so they weren't "heavy" but damn good....I still love "Proud Mary")
+ Cream (before Eric Clapton became a whiney old bugger)
+ Emerson, Lake and Palmer (brilliant!!!)
+ King Crimson (not as well known but equally as brilliant, perhaps even more so. Some overlap with EL&P. Their "In The Court of the Crimson King" was spectacular).
+ T-Rex ("Electric Warrior" was probably the best LP. The rest were a tad too commercial).

He was a "singly" albeit a dependent Very Happy

No singly worth his salt would have admitted listening to Abba Wink

Plus the fact I know of some of the places he has mentioned in the past, and the mention of Abba would probably have had you opening a window or door without touching the ground lol!

Ehehehehe...too true!!

Actually, and I've mentioned this in other threads, I have a story (oh gaaaawd...not another!!) about Abba.

Circa 1970 or so we lived in the town of Beckum, out along the Hoennetal, just before the SansSouci turn off towards Balve. down the hill aways from our house was a young Canadian corporal married to a Danish girl. Nice couple with the cutest little boy, Ron, who was maybe 10 months old at the time.

Anyway, one time when Mom was in hospital for something or other, Dad and I got invited over to Graham and Mia's place to meet some friends of hers. They were Swedish, but she had met them at university or something and they were in a band together...

They got me very drunk on a half-litre of Beer, Cherry Brandy and Vermouth (after I had had about 3 beers already, as I recall. I was 17) and dad had to literally drag me up the hill and back home and put me to bed. I was 'green' for two days after!

The friends had released one local album and it was about to be 'picked up' by Radio Luxembourg. The two guys were also romantically involved with the two women in the group and the group became known as ABBA.

Now, as for my list and the absence of ABBA...keep in mind, this was 1970, I was 17 or 18 years old and the tastes in music were very strict... if you admitted to liking certain groups over others and the groups you liked were not, shall we say, on the 'accepted' list of what teenagers listened to at the time, it was social death. I mean, I was mortified when I started going to the British youth club in Hemer and -- gasp! -- the big group was a bunch who wore outrageous Plaid and sang about Saturday Night!!! Any record of theirs getting played at our youth club in Soest likely would have caused a riot! And not in a good way!!!

Slade was fine -- I liked them actually.

Then everything went to hell and the generation after mine started listening to crap like Backstreet Boys. Eeeeewww....

When I was posted over to Muenster in 1968 I was surprised to hear that 95" of the songs on the juke boxes were in english,and some of the locals were still into Rock&Roll dancing. Middle of the Road ,was popular and Heinz,the man in dark glasses . But one thing I remember well is when the TV news came on.

Marianne Rosenberg was always the fave of the gays in Germany, for some obscure reason. I used to live not very far from her in Berlin and she was a right stuck-up git. I also watched her in "Das Schaukelpferd" disco in Templehof around 1978, and she really has got a crappy voice without all the help she gets from electronics.

Now on the other hand, there was Katja Ebstein, who sang for the Boxheeds in the Eurovision Contest. She really could sing:

Another one of my faves was Wencke Mhyre, who was Norwegian originally, but she could also belt them out:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UFKkKJKFX4U

But if you want to hear a Boxheed biddy from the Seventies with a BIG voice, just listen to this from Joy Fleming:

Enjoy!
