I’m having an Oktoberfest party at the end of the month, and am looking for some popular American songs that were covered/translated into German. We’re a group of mid to late 20’s who are predominately into rock alternative, but are willing to settle for almost anything for it’s campiness. I don’t know where to start, suggestions?
Thanks! That opened it up to a few more that I found on search engines,
Ria Solar - Lollipop - [in German] (1958)
The Beach Boys - Ganz Allein - [In My Room]
Peter and Alex - Wir Wollen Nach Haus - [Sloop John B]
Dionne Warwick - Geh Vorbei - [Walk On By]
The Supremes - Where Did Our Love Go?
The Temptations - Mein Girl - [My Girl]
Vierzehn - Stein Um Stein - [Another Brick in the Wall]
12 - GLS United - Rapper’s Deutsch
Seems searching for ‘foreign language tracks’ helps a bit
I heard a great German rendition of My Ding-a-ling by a hip oompa band back in the 80’s. I told the German Dude I was with that it was an American Song. He refused to believe that Chuck Berry did it. He thought it was a German song.
