Love Is In Da Blog 2020 Day 24: A love song that contains a location & Prompt for Day 25

Hello out there dear readers of “The Bee Writes…” and “Love Is In Da Blog” Bloggers. Hope you are having a cracking day and if not feel surrounded by positive energy coming from me.

Today we follow another brilliant prompt from Paula:

A love song that contains a location. Thanks Paula!!!!

Please head over to Paula’s blog β€œLight Motifs II” and give her some love.

Sigh. There are things in life that you just get wrong time and time again. One of mine is mixing up two German actresses and singers. One is Marlene Dietrich, the other Hilde Knef. I just wrote a whole blogpost about Hilde Knef until I double-checked the video and saw that I should actually be writing about Marlene Dietrich.

So please forgive me if today’s post will be a little short again on the information side of things. I suspect many of you know Marlene Dietrich, and if not, please find some information about her on Wikipedia. I love Berlin even though I would not want to live in a city again. But my year there just after the wall came down was exciting, and I loved every bit of it. In the end, I figured though that I am more of a country bumkin and prefer to live as far away from lots of people as I can.

This song is called “Ich hab noch einen Koffer in Berlin” which means “I still have a suitcase in Berlin”. It plays with the image of the suitcase in Berlin, and that is why the singer has to go back. It also plays with innuendos of a romantic relationship, and it is one of the most famous songs about Berlin in German. And… to get a little of my reputation back: Hilde Knef sang it too :-)…

And as always please follow the link underneath the video to its YouTube location, if it does not play here on the blog.

“Ich hab noch einen Koffer in Berlin” Translation via LyricsTranslate

It’s wonderful in Paris on the Rue Madleen

It’s beautiful in Rome in May to walk through the city

Or a summer night drinking wine silently in Vienna

Yet when you all laugh, too I think about Berlin today 

I still have a suitcase in Berlin

Therefore I muss go back soon

The blisses of times passed

They are all still in this small suitcase

Inside I still have a suitcase in Berlin

That remains so, too and that has it’s reasoning

In the meadow, it’s worth the trip

And if I have yearning, then I drive back in again 

I still have a suitcase in Berlin 

I still have a suitcase in Berlin

Therefore I muss go back soon

The blisses of times passed

They are all still in this small suitcase Inside
