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:

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

Enjoy!

MsG

Bugsy, greetings !

Reading your earlier entries,it's nice to see a bloke using the vernacular of the 70's. As well as "boxheads" we also called them "shedheads".
However, my question is "Schaukelpferd". My knowledge of the German language is mininmal but I translate that as "Joking horse".
How am I doing ?

I remember being in a disco in Horn Bad Meinberg the night Elvis Presley died. The Germans switched everything off and closed the disco.

1979 and The Sugar Hill Gang released Rappers Delight. It was fun watching the Germans trying to " rap" along . The only words they knew were " Hotel , Motel , Holiday Inn.


The Dooleys , The Goombay Dance band and some family whos name I can't for the life of me remember.

The wife is into Rammstein in a big way, personally I can't stand that kind of music.

Just to completely lower the tone of this thread how about Mouth & Macneill from the early '70s. OK I think they were actually Dutch but you could't go to any bar in Verden without hearing them.

Okay, let's see who remembers this chap. Came from Paderborn. Actually had the 'pleasure' of meeting him. Actually I lie, I was allowed to admire him if I wanted! He was right up his own a....! For the time it was quite good music. Made me tap my platform shoes anyway.

Always found that German 'pop' music sounded better at the Schutzenfests or Rosa Montag or anywhere after a few yellow handbags!

Oh how I miss Sennelager in the 70's!!

The link led to some fellow named Kincade....never heard of him.

However.....

There was also a link on that page to a live concert of Deep Purple playing an amazing version of Smoke on The Water....absolutely incredible piece of guitar gymnastics and artistry. These guys, like many bands in the 70's, were musicians who knew their stuff and how to get their guitars to talk and sing and wail. Maybe not to everybody's taste but watching the fret work and hearing the blending of various pieces before breaking into the signature opening riff of SOTW was....well, I don't lie when I said I teared up a tad!

Part of it, of course, is during the 70s when I was 16, 17, 18 Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Hendrix, Joplin, Cream, all those bands and musicians were my gods so hearing the tunes (and, yes SOTW is overplayed on the Classic Rock stations, I agree) is partly nostalgia as well. At the same time, however, these guys knew their roots (blues, rhythm and blues, even jazz) and incorporated it into their own music....brilliant stuff!

Will Justin Bieber last as long? Doubtful....of course that's just what my parents said about Deep Purple, and Jimi Hendrix et al compared to Frank Sinatra and Glenn Miller, so there ya go! LOL

I first saw this on NDR Television in 1965 and it is still being replayed on German Television every New Years Eve and Day. It still makes me laugh and is a Classic, I can't download the Web Site but, go to You Tube and type in Dinner for One - that should do it.

Hemer, where we lived for most of the 70's, was apparently designated a NATO training area.

An everyday sound was the screech of the Luftwaffe Starfighters, ("Flying Coffins"), as they made their turns. It used to really put our teeth on edge.

Graham,
Marriane Rosenberg was very nice but not as nice as Katerine Valente who I saw in Hannover in the mid-fifties. A voice, and a face and figure, to die for.

Noch ein bier,

Norman.

GAAH! I do remember that one....aaaaarrrrgghhh affraid 30 years plus of trying to drive it out of my brain and all it took was one click on a link to bring it flooding back!!!

And the suit....oh my lord!! How did we ever think such a travesty was 'fashionable'? I bet he was wearing platform boots too...not outrageously high ones, of course (only glam rockers wore those!) but probably 1-1/2 to 2 inch ones. I had a pair. Did up the platforms in cheap paint-on glitter that started to flake off almost immediately!! LOL Little trails of silver glitter glistening on the cobblestones behind me and my mates...like Hansel and Gretel's breadcumbs albino
