    [FONT=&quot]Welcome to the forum, I would suggest to put the name of the song you want into a search engine and go from there.

    welcome Wilhelm

    'patriotic' as opposed to 'nazi'?

    Do you have any clues as to titles etc, I mean there are a fair number about on the net but it depends what sort of thing you'd want

    Panzerlied - lyrics and download Panzerlied mp3

    I used to have that as my ring tone...Compared to British 'patriotic' songs the Germans won everytime. I've always like 'Over there' too by the sceptics albeit WW1.

    'I'm gonna hang out the washing on the .....' would hardly inspire me to go and get shot at.

    WW2 Songs would make a great thread :D

    Thanks for all the replies! I don't really mean military/marching songs... just songs from 'civilian life' during that time in Germany that are in German. Does that make sense? I don't know any titles, unfortunately. Maybe songs that may be heard in WWII documentaries or movies from that era of the "good" times there. I assume there is a collection of these somewhere... a free collection, I'm hoping. :)

    Wilhelm -
    the only two German songs I know of from that period were " Lili Marlene" and Sagbeim abscheid liese servus"
    the "Horst Vessal" was a true nazi song - along with "Wir gehen nach England " !

    Cheers

    Not sure if this is what you mean. A wonderful song popular on both sides.

    LILI MARLEN
    By Norbert Schultz
    Underneath the lantern, by the barrack gate,
    Darling I remember the way you used to wait.
    'Twas there that you whispered tenderly,
    That you loved me, You'd always be,
    My Lili of the lamplight, My own Lili Marlene.

    Time would come for roll call, Time for us to part,
    Darling I'd caress you and press you to my heart,
    And there 'neath that far off lantern light,
    I'd hold you tight, We'd kiss good-night,
    My Lili of the lamplight, My own Lili Marlene.

    Orders came for sailing somewhere over there,
    All confined to barracks was more than I could bear;
    I knew you were waiting in the street,
    I heard your feet, But could not meet,
    My Lili of the lamplight, My own Lili Marlene.

    Resting in a billet, just behind the line,
    Even tho'we're parted, your lips are close to mine.
    You wait where that lantern softly gleams.
    Your sweet face seems to haunt my dreams.
    My Lili of the lamplight, My own Lili Marlene.

    Athomedad-
    I recall vividly Jan Kiepura singing his head of in a movie on board a sailing ship long before the war- and thought he was every bit as good as the singers of his day at that time....just a flash of memory now and again -thanks for reminding me of his great voice - even before Tauber

    Cheers

    Is it yours?

    If so, expect your download server to be warming up over the next hour or two...

    Hans Albers was very popular during and after the war and has an interesting biog to say the least - see here:
    Hans Albers - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Being from Hamburg his songs are often about seafaring and the nightlife in his home town. I seem to remember him being considered a little risque.

    Sadly no, it's not, but I've loved the chaps selections
    since I first found it a couple of years ago!

    Glad that you enjoy it too and hopefully find more
    stuff of interest on there in the archive. He usually
    updates once a week, can you believe. Each of his
    selections are designed to fit neatly on to a CDR.
    He's turned me on to so much 'new' (to me) old music
    that I actually owe him bigtime


    best



    Fantastic blog.

    Well I'm one more that'll now be following it closely.
    A taste for Tom Waits and the odd dash of Gottstraffe England on the iPod while picking the kids up from school collides nicely with those two 'Albums'.
