Paranoids paint it black or Memories are made of this

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 )
