It is indeed a postwar composition, by Gerhard Baumann (based on Czech melodies).

Cheers,
Ivan

Wacht auf, Kameraden

Post by rohrbacher » 14 Jan 2008 19:22

Hi all-
Desperately seeking "Wacht auf, Kameraden." The lyrics aren't a problem, and of course I found the (bad) midi version.
I cannot, however find this on Record, CD or anywhere on the internet as a high quality download.
Can anyone help???? :?

i have another question regarding music. this time im not searching for marching music, nor military music. just german music that was popular in bars and restraunts and shows. i am looking for all types of music like this.

i am having some trouble with one, im not sure that i know the lyrics nor do i know the name, all i know is i heard it about 3 or so months ago and cant get it out of my head. in the chorus they all yell "HA HA HA". i also think it was in shindler's list, but cannot find the name.

on the side note of that, if anyone can point me in the right direction for bands, or singers i would much appreciate it. thanks again for all the help.

If you are looking for popular German music out of any times... you are always fine to look for "schlager" - the German term for popular music. I can not think of a schlager with the chorus "ha ha ha" right now... Was it a man or a woman singing the main lines??

Worldwide popular German songs with catchy "ha-ha-ha" in refrain are "Mein Vater war ein Wandersmann" and "Ein Heller und ein Batzen".

Cheers,
Ivan

The funny thing is that when we visited germany in 1974, and I asked in a record shop for records of "Deutsche Soldatenlieder", the manager came just about unglued, and shouted "So was haben wir hier nicht" (or so). On our way back, we stopped over in Vancouver B.C. and looking around in the Woodward store, Westerwald was played over the music section speaker. We bought two records at the time.

I found a file listed as Wenn die Soldaten here: http://beemp3.com/download.php?file=122 ... e+Soldaten

However, there are three songs on this recording. The first two are Wenn die Soldaten, then Ein Heller und ein Batzen. I can't figure out the name of the third song so any help would be fine if someone knows the title. This is an excellent near 6min recording. Any info on when it was recorded, who sung it etc would be much appreciated. Also because there are three songs tied into one i assume its title is something other than Wenn die Soldaten, if someone could confirm the official title of this track that would be great too.

thanks

Re: Potpourri [Wenn die Soldaten - Ein Heller und ein Batzen - Es wollt' ein Mädel früh aufstehn]

Post by Ivan Ž. » 23 Apr 2009 09:11

It is a three-song medley recorded by Luftwaffenmusikkorps 2 (long after WWII). The arranger is the conductor himself, Hauptmann Herbert Russek. It contains three folk songs: "Wenn die Soldaten", "Ein Heller und ein Batzen" and "Es wollt' ein Mädel früh aufstehn". The opening melody is the signal "Rasch vorwärts".

Can anyone provide biographical details of Obermusikmeister a.D. Wilfried Majowski? He led “Die Bückeburger Jäger” ensemble in the 60’s (and perhaps earlier and later) and made several recordings on the Telefunken label. At least two LP’s were released on the “London” label in the U.S, under the titles German Cavalry Marches and German Hunting marches. “London” was the label of the American subsidiary/affiliate of Decca label.

Hello all. I am new to the forum and site and am over joyed by the breath of knowledge and information being shared. In a recent visit to my ancestors hometown in Germany, I was exposed to WWII German music and found an instant love. I have collected quite a few pieces but constantly search for more. I have gravitated more towards the choruses and have found pieces of Drei Lilien, drei Lilien... Please guide me as I can post what I have if anyone is seeking a piece I may have.

Thank you and god Bless
Robert

AS the Allies bombed Berlin, my mother led other children to the roof after school with buckets of bath water to use as extinguishers for incendiary devices dropped in clusters at night that fell like glowing christmas trees onto the streets and roofs of apartments.She recalls the melody but only the single line of the lyrics above.. it was supposed to be a popular love song, that the kids adopted and sang as they carried sand and water buckets to the roofs to drop them into. Does anyone know the first verse or chorus? NOT having a computer or ANY techno device...no youtubes or googles etc... I can't search for or download it or provide you with a sample. Does anyone recognize the lyrics? One of the few daily giggles the kids had for singing while living in daily terror,"Let me slurp your bathwater".. (and take it to the roof!)
