does anyone know Horst wessel's song
DIE FAHNE HOHE?

Anyone doesn't? The NSDAP hymn the Nazis tried to declare as a second german national hymn.

...not so much by watching the link.;)
But -as I mentioned somewhere before- playing, singing or even humming it in public would cause a penalty starting with a fine or up to three years of prison in the worst case.

sure thing.


---------

SS marches into enemy's land
And sings a devil's song
A rifleman stands at the Volga's beach
And silently hum's along
We flout at the Upper and Lower [as in social classes, i assume: schuultz]
And the entire world can
Damn us or praise us
However one likes

Where we are it always moves forwards
And the devil laughs along
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
We're fighting for Germany
We're fighting for Hitler
And the Reds will never have peace

Where we are it always moves forwards
And the devil laughs along
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
We're fighting for Germany
We're fighting for Hitler
And the Reds will never have peace

We already fought in many a battle
In the North, South, East and West
And we are standing prepared for the fight
Against the Red Plague
SS will not rest, we exterminate
Until nobody disturbs Germany's peace anymore
And [even] if our rows thin out
For us, there is no retreat

Where we are it always moves forwards
And the devil laughs along
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
We're fighting for Germany
We're fighting for Hitler
And the Reds will never have peace

Where we are it always moves forwards
And the devil laughs along
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
We're fighting for Germany
We're fighting for Hitler
And the Reds will never have peace

------

It's spooky, and shows the SS attitude pretty well, if you ask me. This song is obviously aimed mainly against the Soviets.

Thanks Schuultz! That is creepy. To laugh with the devil at your own demise.:shock:

Schuultz
01-04-2009, 06:04 PM
I don't think they thought of the Devil as laughing exclusively at their demise, I think they thought more of all the dead Russians they would leave in their tracks.

Though from our modern standpoint, the devil might just laugh because he knows they run into their doom...

And it's obvious they were aware that if they lose/in their enemies eyes they are going to be damned, whereas the Nazis will hail them.

Do you remember the "No fun with the Hun" thread? You gave a link to "Panzerlied" and I found "Horst Wessel lied" in other videos options beside that video.

Maybe they have been blocked by now, too? YouTube sometimes needs a while to take action against videos. Definitely worth checking out.

And I'm positive he's talking about the SS Marching Song, not the other ones.

But seriously, for German Military Music, all you have to do is look at the according channel:

http://ca.youtube.com/user/GermanMilitaryMusic

All pretty good quality, with lyrics posted on the side, and for historical, non-political reasons. (which is hopefully why all of you want to listen to it:army:)

If you want some translations, just request them, I'd be happy to help:D

A personal favorite of these war songs is "Bomben auf England"
http://ca.youtube.com/watch?v=XGZoQFPpqVY&feature=related

Lyrics:
We feel in Aeries and Heights,
The Eagle's reckless luck,
We ascend to the gate,
Of the sun,
And leave the earth behind.

Comrade! Comrade!
The girls have to wait!
Comrade! Comrade!
The order is here, we start!
Comrade! Comrade!
The code is known:
Engage the enemy!
Engage the enemy!
Bombs on England!

We face the British lion,
For the last, decisive strike.
We hold Judgment,
A world Empire shatters.
That will be our proudest day!

Comrade! Comrade!
The girls have to wait!
Comrade! Comrade!
The order is here, we start!
Comrade! Comrade!
The code is known:
Engage the enemy!
Engage the enemy!
Bombs on England!

Do you hear the engines sing:
Up to the enemy!
Do you hear it sound in your ears:
Up to the enemy!
Bombs! Bombs!
Bombs on England!

Hi Schuultz, is it possible to translate Horst Wessel Lied?

Schuultz
01-05-2009, 07:49 AM
Sure thing, I'll be right at it.
Currently waiting for my courses to start, so i have an hour to kill, anyway.

Edit: There you go:
-----
The flag high! The ranks tightly closed!
SA marches with a brave, firm pace.
Comrades whom Red Front and Reaction shot dead
March in spirit within our ranks.

The street free for the brown battalions;
The street free for the SA man!
Already millions are looking to the swastika, full of hope;
The day of freedom and bread is dawning.

Charge-alert has sounded for the last time!
We are all prepared for the fight/We are all willing to fight!
Soon Hitler-flags will flutter over barricades.
Our servitude will not last much longer now!

The flag high! The ranks tightly closed!
SA marches with a calm, firm pace.
Comrades whom Red Front and Reaction shot dead
March in spirit within our ranks.

Any more requests?

Another song I like is "Fallschirmjaeger greifen an" [Paratroopers attack]
http://ca.youtube.com/watch?v=DJmT7gxq7gY&feature=related

Lyrics:
-----

Behind the mountains shines the sun,
Glow the peaks so red,
Stand machines, which want to fly with us,
Fly into victory or death.
Hurray, we're starting, hurray we're starting,
When the first morning sun shines.
Paratroopers, paratroopers,
Engage the enemy!

Narvik, Rotterdam, Corinth,
and the hot Crete are,
Locations of our victories!
Yes, we always attack,
Paratroopers engage,
are willing to dare it!
Yes, we always attack,
Paratroopers engage,
are willing to dare it!

High in the airs flies our bird,
Proud and free through the air.
Firm and honorable are our hearts,
When the command calls for us.
Hurray, we're flying! Hurray, we're flying,
When the first morning sun shines.
Paratroopers, paratroopers,
Engage the enemy!


Narvik, Rotterdam, Corinth,
and the hot Crete are,
Locations of our victories!
Yes, we always attack,
Paratroopers engage,
are willing to dare it!
Yes, we always attack,
Paratroopers engage,
are willing to dare it!

From high in the clouds we rush down,
Deep behind enemy lines.
Foe, we're coming, have you heard?
Soon victory will be ours.
Hurray, we're jumping, hurray we're jumping,
When the first morning sun shines.
Paratroopers, paratroopers,
Engage the enemy!


Narvik, Rotterdam, Corinth,
and the hot Crete are,
Locations of our victories!
Yes, we always attack,
Paratroopers engage,
are willing to dare it!
Yes, we always attack,
Paratroopers engage,
are willing to dare it!

As requested, here are the translated "Panzerlied" (5th SS Viking Panzer Div. Interpretation) lyrics:
-----
Whether it storms or snows,
Whether the sun smiles at us,
The Day glowing hot,
Or the night ice gold,
Dirty are the faces,
But happy is our mind,
Is our mind;
[It] races our tank,
By, in a storm.

With thundering engines,
Swift like the [lightening] flash,
Against the enemy,
Protected by the armor.
Ahead of the comrades,
we stand alone in battle.
We stand alone,
So we push deep,
Into the enemy lines.

When in front of us a hostile
Tank finally appears,
We go into full throttle,
And engage the enemy!
Whatever count our lives,
For our Reich's army?
Yes [our] Reich's army?
To die for Germany,
Is our highest honor.

With barriers and mines,
The enemy halts us,
We laugh about it,
And don't drive on them.
And in his anger, he pathetically shakes his hand
Yes, his hand!
We find ourselves ways,
Which nobody found before us.

And if it abandons us,
The unfaithful Fortune,
And should we not return
Back home,
If the deadly bullet hits us,
If fate calls us away,
Yes, fate [calls] away,
Then our tank,
Will be an honorable grave.

Hello, fellow enthusiasts!
I'm very sorry for writing in such old topic. I've came here by an accident.
All I want to tell you, that I'm very happy and proud that you liked my "GermanMilitaryMusic" account on YouTube. Unfortunately, with no respect to my non-political statement, the channel has been deleted last week.
I want to thank you all. It's you, people, who give sense to such projects like GermanMilitaryMusic.

Cheers!
Peter

Edit:
I'm also pretty surprised, that my little channel was known here, on your great and famous forum! It sure is a big reward :-)

Schuultz
03-11-2009, 12:51 PM
It has been deleted? That's really too bad, what was their reasoning?

I actually really liked your videos, usually high audio quality and nice little clips, and as far as I could tell, you were smart enough to stay away from the illegal songs...

Grociu
03-11-2009, 01:24 PM
Unfortunately, they never give a reason why they are deleting an account, what is really a disrespect to the account's owner, in my opinion.
To prove my statement I'll even say, that GermanMilitaryMusic was my second account on YouTube! I thought about creating a 3rd one, but isn't it senseless...

Thank you Schuultz, you are most kind! Yes, I tried to provide as best quality as possible, and what was my main goal, to make people not confuse Soldatenlieder - soldier songs - with propaganda songs, such as "Horst Wessel Lied" or "Das Hakenkreuzlied".
And yes, you are right, I haven't uploaded any of those illegal songs :-)

It feels pretty bad - I have all of those clips and music ready, but no page to upload them. Now that's an irony.
Cheers!
Peter

...but I can give you "Rot scheint die Sonne" - the german paratroopers' hymn

I was wondering why my book about the German paratroopers was called "Red shines the sun",now I know!
Also I thought it was quite amusing that some German operation where named after songs: Frühlings Erwachen ,Die Wacht am Rhein...
Is there any other songs used in German military operation?
Sorry if it's slightly off-topic.:oops:

"Mondscheinsonate" comes to my mind. But usually they prefered code names of the more menacing kind (plus colours and given names).

P.S. Zierer's "Rot schien die Sonne" was a good read.

My book is from Eric Queen,same title but different author it seems.Good book also.More about pictures than unit history though.

Hello, Friends!

I am a stubborn bastard, I know :-) I am starting again, you can find me here

http://www.youtube.com/rpzb39

Channel is pretty bare right now, because I want to upload everything as fast as possible, so not to worry, everything will be on it's place. Even while I was fully controlling comments, I'm not sure about them now - maybe disabling them (?)

I guess this channel will end like it's 'brothers', but hell, why not give it a try.
Wish me luck, mates! ;-)

Cheers!
Peter

Schuultz

Yeah, maybe it's a good idea to disable comments, and don't forget to distance yourself from the songs and state in the description that it's for historical purposes.

Hello dear Friends, been ages!

Once again I apologize for waking up such an old thread, but I think this one is the most appropriate. Perhaps some of you remember my old YouTube channels, such as RPzB39 or GermanMilitaryMusic. After a long "break" I have decided to give it one more try.
You can find me on YouTube as user/RPzB40

As you may see, this account is intact since April 2010, and I'm happy (yet shocked) to say, that none of my videos got deleted. Considering it as my little motivation, I've changed my uploading strategy a little. And so, now you can find whole albums on my channel, not only "random" songs. From Landsknecht songs (Wilde Gesellen album) to "Bekannte Soldatenlieder folge 1, 2, 3".
I hope you, my Friends, are still interested in some nice military music and I, as a German, am proud to show some of my country's history to you. Open minded and enthusiastic people like you are my biggest reward and motivation :-)

As a rare guest (and a busy man) I want to already wish whole ww2incolor community a calm Christmas time, and everything wonderful in incoming year 2011. Prost!!

With best regards,
Peter
