This track recently came up in conversation over the band Wolfsheim. I have to say that their work is superb and that Peter Heppner's solo material is outstanding. This leads me to this track from the German electronic act Schiller. They brought in Peter for the vocals. It turned out to be an awesome track that had plenty of club play back in 2001, when it was released on the Schiller CD 'Weltreise'.

  1. Great track! Heppner's voice makes any song melancholically superb!

    I wish there were some real remixes of Sparrow and the Nightingale .... such an awesome song!

    1. Aaaah ... The Sparrows and the Nightingales. Did you ever listen to the lyrics? "Where is the leader who leads me? I'm still waiting" and then the repetition of this line in German: "Wo ist der Führer, der mich führt? Ich warte immer noch" (you know what the "Führer" in German means, don't you?). Why only this line in German, although the word "Führer" still has such a strong connotation to Hitler in German that *everybody* else avoids it?! And can't you *easily* interpret nightingales as Arians and sparrows as non-Arians/Jews? And the thing he emphasizes to be waiting for as the new Reich? Of course Heppner always denied the meaning but could not offer another one. I like the melody, too, but can you really ignore this? I think they best should be completely avoided.

  2. I never really went in depth to find out the true meaning regarding the track you mentioned. I was a bit more interested in the single I posted to the page. I'm sharing your comment as so others may weigh in if they deem necessary,. Thank you for reviewing my blogpost.

  3. lol ... people and their crazy conspiracy theories!!!

    Fuehrer means NOTHING MORE than leader! In the English language it now has the negative connotation associated with Hitler. In German, fuehrer means to lead ... that's it. It's similar to when you hear the word Comrad and immediately associate it with communism, even though it only means "friend".

    Additionally, many German singers like Heppner, Falco, etc often mix German and English lyrics.

    The best part of the idiotic statement above though is the claim that nightingale refers to Germans and sparrows to jews without explaining why?!?! I have never heard of people referring to Germans as nightingales ... lol

    Anyhow, if you listen to the entire song, you can tell that this is an anti-war and anti-hate song. The context of the text shows that sparrows and nightingales refers to the fact that people try to differentiate between species but in fact they are all just birds (e.g. the same!).
