I like a lot of German music. 

 

Kraftwerk is one of my favorites, hence my screen name. I have seen them a few times, but my favorite time was in Düsseldorf. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zOfh7YdugzQ

 

Paul van Dyk is another of my favorites and I’ve seen him many times. I also like many other German DJs.

 

Tocotronic: https://youtu.be/KLlXJH7oJSI

 

Others: Blutengel, Melotron, Wolfsheim, 2raumwohnung, Der Dritte Raum, and more. 

 

I like a lot of Techno as well (thanks U60311 in Frankfurt). Trance, Prog are a close second.

"Ich liebe dich
Ich liebe dich nicht
Ich liebe dich nicht mehr
Ich liebe dich nicht mehr oder weniger als du
Als du mich geliebt hast
Als du mich noch geliebt hast"

 

Becomes...

 

"I love you
I love you not
I love you no more
I love you no more or less than you
Than you loved me
When you still loved me"

 

Translating only the meaning without any of the (very clever; imo) wordplay: 

 

I love you 

I do not love you 

I do not love you anymore 

I do not love you any more or less than you 

Than you loved me. But could also mean: When you loved me 

When you still loved me

"Silence!" said Tim Bendzko, German popular singer, when asked what he likes to listen to.

 

Understandable, he spends hours on stage screeching his songs, and hours in the studio, trying again and again to make perfect recordings to release as 45s😉

..

Ninetynine Redballoons is one of my favourites.

Most excellent response @maxie.

 

Another door of interpretation opens.

 

Till Lindemann is the king of German wordplay. As Andrew Eldritch is the king of English wordplay. I must muse more.

 

Thank you!

Lots of wordplay in this one...

 

Probably my favourite German track though is...

 

Let´s not forget the classics though...

If you believe the legend about this piece apparently Beethoven wrote it for a woman he fancied who couldn´t play very well so he made it a very easy piece to play.Then halfway through writing it he discovered she was engaged to someone so made the rest of it difficult so she couldn´t play it.
