Vote for favorite song from German class

Zwei Lieblingslieder aus Deutschklasse

If you live in Europe, you’ve probably heard of Namika and Johannes Oerding. But not so for my students and I who live in Arizona. I’ve been introducing  “das lied der woche” (song of the week) since the school year began. I took a poll in German class yesterday, and these two are top contenders. Please join us by watching and listening to the videos and casting your vote.

  1. Namika, “Lieblingsmensch” 

2. “Einfach Nur Weg” by Johannes Oerding 

Maybe spit in Paris from the Eiffel Tower.

Take a taxi to London to look at the jewels.

I have never been anywhere in Africa.

I have never been to New York.

Oh, it’s really shit, I want to go somewhere else.

I just want to go away, only away, just away

Where everything is easy

I just want to go away, only away, just away

Where everything is easy

Oho Oho Oho ohoho

Maybe hide on a lonely island.

How to check in Lindenberg for a while.

Jump on other trains without a ticket and

Sing my songs on a gondola in Venice.

I have never been anywhere in Africa.

I have never been to New York.

I want to go somewhere else.

I just want to go away, only away, just away

Where everything is easy

I just want to go away, only away, just away

Where everything is easy

Oho Oho Oho ohoho

Drop by ship from the port of Hamburg.

Spend the last bit of money in Las Vegas.

Where everything is easy, Until I know what I miss here.

I just want to go away, only away, just away

Where everything is easy Just gone, just gone…

    1. Hiya, Pete. She’s beautiful and it’s a beautiful song. I’m not surprised you voted for her. Next week we will be listening to another one of her songs that sounds upbeat and interesting, “Je ne parle pas français”

  1. I liked both hits, but I went with Nakima on the poll. The only time I heard any German music was when I was in Berlin last summer. But I do like the upbeat on these songs though.

  2. Every time I hear German language, I think of my daughter 🙂 She went to Mittelschule for 3 years and was quite fluent – not now, unfortunately. My mother and paternal grandmother spoke German, but not me 🙂

    1. Aww, too bad!
      Wie Deprimerend!
      The songs have upbeat melodies and will cheer you, regardless if you understand German I included the English lyrics. There are many songs in English I don’t know what they are saying, but I like beat and sound of the melody. 😉
