Dieselpunks

Dieselpunk + Steampunk Culture

found a few threads on Mr. Raabe on the forum but nothing recent.

Very fun 20s-30s versions of modern songs, as well as the usual American songbook songs.

 

We Will Rock You  - yes, it's Queen

and yes, Oops I did it again

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FfBQ3bNNwHs

It reminds me of Riff Raff singing it.

 

and on Sesam Strasse - in German.  I haven't a clue what he's singing

Those are actually pretty darn awesome!

the last track is called "lullaby", and the lyrics go like this (i am not a poet, just translated):

on the south pole sits a small penguin and looks, if his lacier melts

a zebra counts its stripes concentratedly until it gets tired/sleepy

a swarm of cranes lifts into the air and moves to the sea

a pair of pandas looks after them full of longing

---

but you my dear have to go to sleep

'cause stars are already shining at the sky

the sun is already in paradise

you my dear have to go to sleep

the world will keep turning

close your eyes and a dream will find you

---

Venus stands watch over everything that happens in the universe

the moon is putting on her glasses and doesn't believe what she's seeing

a little mountain dog watches TV secretly a little longer in Bern

in Cairo a crocodile swallows an iced lolly (Eis am Stiel)

the fish are silent in the ocean, the sea shells are quiet in the sand

the whale-fish lets some bubbles go up far far on land

---

but you my dear have to go to sleep

'cause stars are already shining at the sky

the sun is already in Agadir

you my dear have to go to sleep

the world will keep turning

close your eyes and a dream will find you

---

the sandman and his wife are making themselves comfortable

and tomorrow when you are awake I will bring the breakfast to your bed
