East German Pop

The Gerd Michaelis Chor belong to the same easy-listening category as vocal groups like the Ray Conniff Singers, except they sang in German. Somehow this song has a very "space-age" quality about it - maybe it's the organ.

Gerd Michaelis Chor - Schön Fängt Jede Liebe An

This, and more East German beat and pop nuggets are available on "Amiga A Go-Go Vol. 2: Deutsch- Demokratischer Beat".

I absolutely love stuff like this. :-) That organ and the weird pseudo-rhythm the drums fall into periodically makes for a very distinctive song. Thanks for posting this!

Hi. I’ve heard about your blog in the computer times and I was wondering if u know abt New Zealand singer Bic Runga. Her website is at http://www.bicrunga.com. Maybe you could feature her on your blog if u like her music?

Great song indeed! Love the contrast of the surf guitar and the smooth harmony vocals. I'm re-downloading it because my first attempt was incomplete.
