Today i saw these 4 “Beauties” at the filling station , Zündapp Bella has been built from 1953 to 1964 . Approximately 130000 of these motorcyles have been built . More information here http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Z%C3%BCndapp_Bella
These 4 Bella Fans have been on their way to the Nürbugring /Vulkaneiffel. Every year there is a reunion of all Bella Fans , about 200 people meet there , exchanging spare parts and experoiences , having fun and atr least they make excursions with their motorcycles , must be really fasinating to see a lot of them in a convoy .
Here http://bellatreffen.de.to/ you can find also a few pictures from the meeting in 2012 and earlier
The title of my blog is a sample of different songs from Black Sabbath, the Rolling Stones and Dean Martin , which have been afterwards covered in german by german popstars in the late 60´s . It has been the attempt to gain success with songs which have been very successful in the english original , but in germany there have been not so many people who spoke english very well , so they translated the lyrics into german and covered the rock songs. I think the attempt has not been soooo successfull but often funny and sometimes a little bit strange. Especially if you know that Cindy and Bert , Karel Gott or Freddy Quin has been popular for german folk songs or bettern known as “Schlager” and not as rock interprets.
Here are a few examples – first the english Original , afterwards the german cover version
The Rolling Stones – Paint it Black
Karel Gott – Rot und Schwarz (translated Red and Black with Balalaika )
Black Sabbath – Paranoid
Cindy and Bert – der Hund von Baskerville (translated in english – the Dog of Baskerville )
its abouth this famous Sherlock Holmes Story
Dean Martin – Memories are made of this
Freddy Quinn – Heimweh ( this song has been very successfull in germany )
I would not call it noise , it sounds so negative , no it´s music , and for every music genre you get an example
Try it out
Today i´ve watched this video
i thought , okay , this guy is rather cool , and then i remembered a young friend who has worked in a gas station
a man cam in and asked for the money with a knife in his hand , and after he has received the money he asked my young friend for cigarettes
and what was so funny to me , he asked him for the fucking brand ” Marlboro , Camel ??
you know there are a lot of cool people out there !
