Last night our team was in the first 1/8-final game against Sweden.
AND THEY WON!!!
We had a lot of respect, when we heard we had to play Sweden, but fortunately the game was a game, two goals in the first 12 minutes. Who would have expected this???
Well not me, but I am happy, so I continue the happy vibe with
Kettcar - Ich danke der Academy
a great popsong. You can learn more about this fantastic pop band here :
This is one for the future:
Maximilian Hecker - Cold Wind Blowing
and another nice one from the past:
The Slits - So tough
Maybe the next one is not so anger-inducing now anymore, a great song with a great video, showing how the people worked to build up again, which you can see further up in this blog.
Paul van Dyk & Peter Heppner - Wir sind wir
A song that is trying to show some patriotism, that until now always has been hidden or shown by the wrong people, the lyrics are : We are We. Especially the video shows how the Germans built up again after WW2. One thing I mention about this song now (June 06) is that I hope we can give this song a modern edge, some pride, by getting this song sung by Germans for the 21st Century without us being seen as some stormtroopers!
