It's not that hard really. The first four words are the title of the song. The last two "words" - they're letters actually, it's an acronym - are the organisation the song was dedicated to. Also, the song has been mentioned on the forum before (briefly though).

Hello,

it's Frisch wie kühles Morgengrauen zieht zum Kampfe die SS... by Erich Rißmann.

Best,
F.

:thumbsup:

Indeed, it is "Frisch wie kühles Morgengrauen", Marschlied der SS (arrangement by Hans Krüger-Burghardt). The short intro before the vocal part is, of course, the well known C. M. v. Weber's tune "Das ist Lützows wilde, verwegene Jagd".

Hello,

you are searching for a song dedicated to a paramilitary organization. Title and lyrics has to do with clothes...

Hello, F.

The first title that came to my mind was "Schwarze Hosen, braune Hemden" (NSKK).

Cheers,
Ivan

Aaaaahh, come on... :lol: That was too quick! Too easy for experts, too hard for beginners. That's the "problem" in this topic.

Answer is correct :wink:

:D Indeed - but! In time, everyone following the quiz and other topics will enrich their knowledge on the subject significantly, which will hopefully reduce/erase the gap between more knowledgeable members and beginners ;)

OK, new question will follow soon...

Cheers,
Ivan

Question 85

Post by Ivan Ž. » 28 Sep 2019 14:11

This one shouldn't be too hard, since (in case someone doesn't recognise the tune immediately) the answer can be yet again found on the forum, in a related topic (always remember to check the topic index).

Which (original) radio fanfare can be heard in the cult movie "Das Boot" right before the Alarm-scene?


Ivan

PS
This movie has so many excellent and often barely noticeable little details like this one, it's really fascinating.

If you search the topic index with the word "fanfare", you'll get five results, all leading to one topic. The answer is there. The fanfare were based on the main German war song of WWII, which was Navy-related as well.

The 'England-Fanfare' with the last motives of the 'Engellandlied'? Strangely, from its first hearing it sounds also a bit like 'Prinz Eugen'.

Yes, it's "England-Fanfare" (melody: "denn wir fahren gegen Engelland, Engelland").

It does sound a bit different than the original Niel's tune, doesn't it? Alexander Ecklebe made the arrangement.

Question 86

Post by Auceps » 02 Oct 2019 22:12

Sure, but I guess the reason was that it should sound like a complete (even when short) work and not as a part of a song (it's only my opinion though). :)

Thank you, Ivan! My question is pretty simple (Ivan knows the answer I guess): who was the successor of Friedrich Ahlers as a director of music of the 'Großdeutschland' military band?

Well, if no one else's going to answer... It was Obermusikmeister Hans Borghoff.
