These are the GREATEST German beer songs ever! What ingenuity, what novelty! The lyrics of "Ich Hab Mein Herz In Heidelberg Verloren" astounded me, my literal translation of this song title is "I have my Hertz In Heidelberg, Darling" and it is all about a gentleman who walks into a bar and orders a beer, bemoaning his fate to be stuck with a Hertz Sales Receptionist from Heidelberg. Ah, the sweet sorrow of it all. These songs are drunk best with beer. So have your bartender pull you a tall Pilsner while you sit back and enjoy the bittersweet nostalgia of these great german songs.

I was 10 years old when my parents bought this LP to play in our new Stereo Record Player. You see, my father was in the Army and my family joined him in 1957 for a three year tour of duty in Munich. This is genuine Oktoberfest Music to which I was exposed at that age. Many of these songs are now "corny", as I learned when I revisited Munich in Spring 2001. I love them and they bring joyous childhood memories to me. I have been looking for this "album" for many years because the original copy can no longer be played. I even looked for it in Munich back in 2001 to no avail. Thanks, Amazon for finding it for me. Maybe someone out there will enjoy at much as I did and will continue to do so.

After listening in several CD's we ordered it, because it perfectly complements the "Oktoberfest in Munich" CD. Both together can be used the whole evening as authentic background music for an Oktoberfest party.

Hey Guys!
The translation of the title "Ich hab mein Herz in Heidelberg verloren" ist "I've lost my heart in Heidelberg" and it's not a story about Hertz experiences, it's about a man who's telling how he had fallen in love in Heidelberg. I just wanted to tell u this so you now what this song really is about. I please u to excuse my writingmistakes in this text, but I'm an original German not wearing lederhosen ;-)....PS: The song Lilly Marleen is not the best drink song,thats true but the writing with double e is correct, cause its a dialect...have fun,bye

I`d like to know who in the world has compilated this ( and some other CDs of the same niveau)CD!!! It`s so full of clìches that I don`t know where to start. Yes, some of these songs are kinda folk drinking songs, others like "Der treue Husar" are rather Mardi Gràs songs, yes I know, that`s about drinking, too, but there`s a difference that would take too long to explain ( by the way , normaly there is only a shortened version sung, for who wants to sing a song in merryment about a husar who returned from war only to find his lady love has died of a fever??).
And that what hurt me most is " Lili Marleen" ( with two E!!).
This song deffinitely noone sings in Germany regularly, exspecialy when drunk!! Those, who want to buy this CD and still have relatives who where in the 2nd world war, should ask them about this song. Does the whole world still believe that all the Germans in the world wear Lederhosen and a drooping mustache??
By the way, whoever wants to hear a sample of German sung in a dialect that I would call "thoroughly drunk" is right to buy this crap. But do me a favour, next time you see one of the homeless on the streets, buy him and yourself a bottle of cheap strong spirits, and share some good old German drinking songs!!
