By the way, some sounds of "Haus am See" seem to be inspired by Bert Kaempfert's "Mambo Mania":

I am enjoying all music. But Schlager is special for me. Tonight is Schlagerfest in Balderschwang. At 19.30Uhr, with live music and this heat, it should be fun!

 

Also, Hubert v. Goisern, while from Austria and is very political and progressive(?), is a favourite of mine.

 

 

 

...and as Burgberg is the next village over...

I like Jan Delay.. I liked his performance at the Eurovision Song Contest a couple of years ago:

I love his sleazy-sounding voice and the way he dresses when he's performing.

I prefer the second song here. But I love the breezy feel-good atmosphere. I'd love to have been there.

 

I actually feel quite proud of Germany when I see this clip. Even the foreigners in the audience are really enjoying it. I think it was a great decision to get him to sing there on this occasion.

 

Shame I couldn't find the original video of Klar.

 

Then there is Seeed with "Ding" (wasn't Peter Fox the lead singer here?). I just love the way that the German doesn't sound heavy here - it's fast and flexible.

 

 

 

I know the examples are a bit out of date. The last boyfriend was German and introduced me to this singer and this band. But that was in 2006-2007.
