so I was playing an acoustic show yesterday, and this german guy walks up to me and asks me to play a german song. So I tried 99 red balloons, but it didn't fly. He said That if I played a german song by the time of the next show, he would give me $50.

*Long story short, I need to know an easy but recognizable german song.* Can anyone help me?


PS, I don't speak german, so this really needs to be easy.

Any Rammstein.

DON'T play Tokio Hotel. That's degrading. If he didn't like the 99 balloons song, he'll tear your head off if you play Tokio hotel.

Invite the guy to sing.

I highly recommend "Eisgekuhlter Bommerlunder" by die Toten Hosen. Every german knows it, and it's only, like, 8 lines.

Eisgekühlter Bommerlunder -
Bommerlunder eisgekühlt.
Eisgekühlter Bommerlunder -
Bommerlunder eisgekühlt.

Und dazu:
Ein belegtes Brot mit Schinken - Schinken!
Ein belegtes Brot mit Ei - Ei!
Das sind zwei belegte Brote,
eins mit Schinken uns eins mit Ei.

TL;DR: Saw a girl at Wal-Mart, she started feeling me up, I jizzed in my pants.

Shit, I'm so pathetic.

[quote="'[BurnTheDusk"]']I agree, tone does sound better the closer your genitals are to the ground.

Crabcore?

UNACCEPTABLE

and if he doesnt accept that, he isnt German. though i dont know that the guitar part would be easily recognizable. if you can find a way to arrange it for acoustic guitar, that would be awesome.


EDIT: wait, do you have to do the vocals as well? if not, then maybe that song wont be the best choice.
