Songs written and performed by Annett Louisan
All my Year 11 German students borrowed my copy of “Unausgesprochen” by Annett Louisan. They know all the songs by heart….. this very interesting language and related expressions are creeping into their oral and written pieces using the language and expressions in her songs. Beautiful examples of sentence reversal, linking, and use of declensions is becoming more skilled.
Now they are after me to lend them my copy of “Teilzeithippie.” Her songs are catchy, very very clever with excellent language, and deal with issues the girls really engage with. They never get tired of her songs, and….. lots of stuff on Youtube. Here are a few examples.

(we did this song first and you have the words in German and English) - prize-winning theme song from a TV series:
EINE EINFACHE WAHRHEIT (I think it has another title on the CD) - interesting cartoon effect
DIE KATZE - Cute song in German with cartoon clip (it has French subtitles)
Lots of video clips by her: ****

Donikkl – German Children’s Band
Richelle Hollis from was in Germany with her family over the holidays and while at a Volksfest discovered ‘an awesome children’s band Donikkl, her young daughter’s new favourite music. Richelle relates: “The group members have studied education and you can tell through some of their songs that they are teachers. Das Fliegerlied is an Oktoberfest hit.” Richelle is very impressed by the band.
