Options Brian Turner: Playlist from March 4, 2014 Options

Order and disorder in a freeform haze of terribly-played guitars, shorted-out electronics, found audio detritus, strange sounds from strange lands all around. Psych-punk-junk, collage, even pop. Lots of in-studio live performances to boot.

Sometimes Brian's show comes on while I'm driving, and I start laughing with delight, that I can listen to adventurous music on FM radio for an entire 40 minute drive, and it gives me hope!!!!!

Just tuned for snaper track and I love your co host Brian? you too by the way!! :)
Avatar 🎃 Tue. 3/4/14 4:43pm mariano:

No, I wasn't trying to be a scold: it's just that the uber alles part was part of the anthem under the Third Reich, and now it's actually illegal to sing that version in Germany. It's confusing because it's the same melody, but the lyrics were changed after the war.
Avatar Tue. 3/4/14 4:43pm Lucas:

I mean Brian!
Avatar 🎃 Tue. 3/4/14 4:52pm mariano:

Most Germans would be taken aback or even offended if someone sang those lyrics to them, is all I was trying to say, though you'd probably get some nervous chuckles too. Deutschland uber alles (Germany over everyone) is basically the slogan of the Third Reich. Ok, I'll shut up about it now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 3/4/14 5:02pm Guido (Cologne):

Thanks mariano for the note!

It's a habit to sing the third verse "Einingkeit und Recht und Freiheit" ("unity and justice and freedom") on official occasions. (The soccer occasions are a bit "too dump".)

The "Über alles"-verse is not originating from nazi time, but heavily connected and if you observe the ideology of Hoffmann von Fallersleben (the original author) it's intension is heavy right wing nationalism (from today's point of view).

So yes, the "über alles" can be a of strong offense especially it you communicate with "alternative coulture" people.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 3/4/14 5:17pm Guido (Cologne):

It is not illigal!
It was for a certain time after WW2.
Avatar 🎃 Tue. 3/4/14 5:17pm mariano:

@Guido: ah, thanks, didn't know that the verse predated the nazis. Bronwyn: honest, just pointing it out, didn't want it to turn into a thing!
Avatar 🎃 Tue. 3/4/14 5:17pm mariano:

@Guido: I stand corrected, sorry.
  Tue. 3/4/14 5:19pm Sam:

What are the words now? "Deutschland, Deutschland, das ist schoene?"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 3/4/14 5:21pm Guido (Cologne):

It's allright mariano!
You tried your best to take care!
Details can be confusing.
