Before going wild, A.A, remember to credit the source of the lyrics you're posting.

Texas Rangers [Marsch]

Post by Midnight-Blue766 » 21 Apr 2019 17:53

Not sure where else to put this, but the album "Gesungene Marschlieder" has a rather strange track entitled Texas Rangers played by "Musikkorps der Luftwaffe II". I can't seem to find any information on this, but it's quite peculiar, being named after an American institution and sounding at times like something out of a Western. Can anyone find any more information on when it was written, why it was composed, etc.? When I posted this to a different forum, someone said it may have some connection to the works of Karl May. Part of me has a feeling this may actually postdate World War II, and is connected in some way to the US Army and the post-war occupation of West Germany.

It's a postwar composition by Rolf Hempel (1932-2016). There were two of his pieces recorded by Musikkorps und Soldatenchor der Luftwaffe II and released in pair on Austroton 9375-45: "Texas Rangers" and "Mädel, gib mir deine Hand".

Cheers,

Hello everybody!

Maybe I've already asked that question here (sorry in that case), but I would like to ask it here again: For a very long time ago there was some medley from the 1930-s (or 1929 maybe) on YouTube which was dedicated either to the Berlin S- or U-Bahn. Practially, it was a musical imitation of a train driving from a station to a station, and on every station the choir sang a short song about the city district where the station was. I remember the songs "Komm, Karlineken, komm, wir woll'n nach Pankow geh'n" and "Komm' mit nach Friedenau, da ist der Himmel blau". Possibly it was a Grammophon recording. Could anybody help me on that matter?

Thanks in advance!

Hello, Auceps

Sounds like Otto Kermbach's medley "Eine lustige S-Bahn Fahrt" (recorded for the "Lied der Zeit" company in 1951):


(A nice idea for a medley, by the way :) )

Cheers,
Ivan

Hello, Ivan,

yes, it sounds like it (I remember that some Otto recorded it, but wasn't sure if it was Kermbach or Dobrindt)! Thank you very, very much for your help again! :)

In the linked file (22,6mb) I'd like to know the name of the march played from 13:25 to 15:40.

(The march was played by the band of the Schutzpolizei Köln)

It's a postwar (1960s) marine piece called "Hab' gute Fahrt", composed by Wal Barny & Peter Poll.

I'm looking for the lyrics of this song. If anyone knows or will take the time to write it, it'll be greatly appreciated!

Hello and :welcome:

Just a note: the song itself is a postwar (1960s) piece, created by Walter Heyer (under his real name and his pseudonym Jan Steeven).

I've merged your post with our thread dealing with post-WWII compositions now.

Cheers,
Ivan
