German Songs on Youtube with new ones just added July 2014

with 6 comments

Our family used to love to sing together, I imagine hundreds of songs. I discovered some of them on youtube. Nora has been listening to Spanish ones and I have been listening to these! Here are their adresses:


Guten Abend, Gute Nacht

Again by Nana Mouskouri

By Esther Ofarim:

Weis Du Wieviel Sternlein Stehen

Schlafe mein Prinzchen Schlaf ein


Friesenlied „Wo die Nordsee Wellen“

Lili Marleen by Marlene Dietrich

Lili Marleen, Sing-a-long:

This for Esther: Lolita „Fahre mich in die Ferne mein blonder Matrose“

“Seeman, deine Heimat ist das Meer”

Das Lied des Nordens

Auf der Lüneburger Heide

Tief im Boehmer Wald

Es war im Boehmer Wald

Hoch auf dem gelben Wagen (Aber der Wagen der rollt)

Seaman’s Medley

Ein Jaeger aus Kurpfalz

Im gruenen Wald wo die Drossel singt

Ich schiess den Hirsch im wilden Wald

Das Wandern ist des Műllers Lust

Wem Gott will Rechte Gunst erweisen

My father always sang this one. It must have been a Schlager in the early 1900’s!

These songs that I just found are all ones that I remember that our family sang (July, 2014)

Tirol, Tirol, Tirol, Du Bist Mein Heimatland

Mein Vater war ein Wandersman

O Du Wunderschöner deutscher Rhein

Ade Du mein lieb Heimatland

Ännchen von Tharau

O Täler Weit, O Höhen

Mädel Ruck, Ruck, Ruck

Am Brunnen vor dem Tore


These are pieces that Nora and I listen to Sunday mornings and it gives Soli Deo Gloria! Real glory to the day!

Bach BWV #78

Bach BWV # 147

  4. I am seeking alternative sites to youtube on which I can view and, hopefully, download to dvds German Schlager and Volksmusik to add to my collection.

    Many years ago I bought CDs and DVDs on visits to Germany and, later, found I could obtain German television music programmes on my receiver which was only bought for Sky Sport the subscription for which was discontinued when our sons left home and, since have recorded selected songs from tv music programmes. Recently, I found such music could be found on youtube but until a few weeks ago have only discovered a successful means of downloading videos.

    I also subscribe to German monthy magazine ‘Meine Melody’.

    I was advised about 123video, which I think is a Dutch site, but have not been successful, so far, in finding the music I seek and to find if it can be downloaded.

    Any advice would be much appreciated.

    Kind regards

    John. (
