NEW Video: German Versions of Hit Songs

Raabe CD  

You’ll find a wide variety of music here, ranging from Rammstein to The Sound of Music! We even offer the German lyrics for songs by the Beatles and Johnny Cash! (Yes, they made recordings in German.)

Most of the German song lyrics collection is still online at my former German Language site (and we link to that), but all of the newer songs and newly added lyrics are right here at, including those by artists such as Annett Louisan, ich + ich, the Wise Guys, and Chefket. You’ll also find the German lyrics from the film version of The Sound of Music (known in German as MEINE LIEDER, MEINE TRÄUME) and some great songs by Max Raabe (album pictured above), and Heintje hits from the 1960s.
