… comes from my favourite movie critic, asshole Jay, of the Assholes Watching Movies blog:
Fortunately I’m not in the habit of makebelieve musical stardom but I suffer a much more nerve wracking habit: At random times during the day I break out into “singing” badly remembered parts of super bad German schlagers of my childhood in the 70s. That’s all sorts of uncool. 😦 And poor hubby’s suffering worse than me.
vocal pieces of pop music with simple, happy-go-lucky, and often sentimental lyrics.
The style emerged in Europe after the Second World War, partly as a backlash against American rock and roll. Typical schlager tracks are either sweet, sentimental ballads with a simple, catchy melody or light pop tunes. Lyrics typically center on love, relationships, and feelings.
Brace yourself for over 5 hours of shitty crappy shitcrap! :0
Yes, I am ashamed. But hey, I’m a product of my time. And it all changed anyway when I got my first record player with some Beatles and an ABBA album. And then it all changed again with the British Hard Rock invasion … and then PUNK! And instantly life became awesome.
