Sunday Music, Monday Edition

This time it was difficult to find a Sunday Music. I started, as usual, somewhere and then drifted through musicland. I have some starting points, like a channel specialised on baroque music, another one that collects psychedelica etc. I have no real criterion sine qua non, except maybe the length of the piece or the video – duration not longer than four minutes, if possible. Usually it makes “cklick” sometime, and I know that I have found what I was looking for.
This time nothing clicked, yesterday at least. The guitars were boring, the baroque too fast, I niggled & poked on anything.
But there is always Helge SCHNEIDER (Ger., Eng.). Yes, I know, one part of my German speaking readers will skip now immediately, others will look indifferent and think something like “Bring it on, I saw worse !”, while a few will be interested. SCHNEIDER is usually announced as “comedian”, whatever this means in the actual German entertainment sector, but he’s also a gifted jazz musician – who sometimes playes “Strafjazz” / “jazz as punishment”, if the audience demands old nonsense songs, like the indestructible “Katzeklo'”. I know of no other song about the cat’s litter box that made it into the charts (13, German singles, 1994) ; but no fear, no litter box today. We will hear Herr SCHNEIDER with his Corona Song, in which he emphasises the necessity and advantage of being able to play a piano – möge es ein Ansporn sein.
I hope you enjoy the music, may the week be good to all of us.

  1. I have always wished that I could play the piano – though I don’t think this YouTube is going to help me fulfil my ambition!
    Have a good week!

  2. No, Herr SCHNEIDER is not the teaching type. Maybe you could have a look at Mr Cory HALLs work, dearest MsScarlet.

    He can actually be pretty good, especially when he does not sing, dear Dinahmow

    Ha – who would have thought ?! Thank you very much Melanie. I never knew that Mr FORD can play an instrument.

    Er hat ja auch viel Klamauk gemacht, und Vieles war enfach auch doof. Er hat gesagt, daß mit zunehmenden Alter seine Sachen immer psychedelischer werden. Jedenfallsist er in diesen zwei Minuten völlig frei, kann nicht jeder.
    Bis später Anna.
