  • Nina Hagen - So Bad

    3:36

    Official music video for So Bad, one of many killer tracks by the Mother of Punk. Taken from the album Revolution Ballroom (1993)

    Lyrics:
    I can be so strong
    Like a lion on a mission
    I can do no wrong
    I can fight day and night
    That's my decision

    Because the world is:
    So bad
    Like diet soda
    So bad
    I`m counting 37 wars
    So bad
    User friendly
    So bad
    We lost the singer of the Doors
    So bad
    Genetic obsession
    So bad
    Misused atomic energy
    So bad
    Surprise, surprise, the culture industry
    So bad
    Helmut Kohl

    (Bundeskanzler Kohl befürwortet diese Mission)

    You can do no wrong
    If you fight on my side
    If you make that decision

    Because the world is
    So bad, so bad, so bad, so bad

    So bad
    I.R.A. & R.A.F.
    So bad
    Are we really blind and deaf
    So bad
    The yugoslavian rape
    So bad
    And no-one can escape
    So bad
    The Nazi Lunacy
    So bad
    Artificial Extasy
    So bad
    I hate my T.V.
    So bad

    Nina Hagen - Du hast den Farbfilm vergessen 1974

    (Nina erläutert die Entstehungsgeschichte des Titel)

    Du hast den Farbfilm vergessen, mein Michael,
    Nun glaubt uns kein Mensch wie schön's hier war(haha haha haha)
    Du hast den Farbfilm vergessen, bei meiner Seel,
    Alles blau und weiß und grün und später nicht mehr wahr!

    Tu tu tu tu tu tu ...

    Du hast den Farbfilm vergessen bei meiner Seel,
    Alles blau und weiß und grün und später nicht mehr wahr!

    Nun sitz ich wieder bei dir und mir zu Haus,
    Und such die Fotos für's Fotoalbum aus,
    Ich im Bikini und ich am FKK,
    Ich frech im Mini, Landschaft ist auch da ja

    Aber, wie schrecklich, die Tränen kullern heiß.
    Landschaft und Nina und alles nur schwarz-weiß,
    Micha, mein Micha und alles tut so weh,
    Tu das noch einmal, Micha und ich geh!

    Du hast den Farbfilm vergessen, mein Michael,
    Nun glaubt uns kein Mensch wie schön's hier war(haha haha haha)
    Du hast den Farbflim vergessen, bei meiner Seel,
    Alles blau und weiß und grün und später nicht mehr wahr!

    Tu tu tu tu tu tu ...

    Du hast den Farbfilm vergessen, bei meiner Seel,
    Alles blau und weiß und grün und später nicht mehr wahr!

    Rockversion zu Frank Sinatra's Originaltitel

    I know the end is near
    And so I face the final curtain
    My friend, I'll hope it's clear
    I'll state my case of which I'm certain
    I've lived a life that's full
    I've travelled each and every highway
    And more, much more than this
    I do it my way

    Die Welt ist so kaputt
    Is alles Schutt auf dieser Erde
    Doch jetzt wird alles gut
    An deiner Seite gibts keine Pleite
    Und dann, ja dann und wann
    Kommt dann der Mann, oder die Frau deiner Träume
    Und dann hältst du dich ran
    Ein ganzes Leben

    Und Geld ist mehr - money money money money -
    mehr wert als ich, als du, als ich
    Fressen allein genügt uns nicht
    Auch kein Geschwätz macht keinen satt
    In diesem sogenannten Land, in dieser sogenannten Stadt
    Der Druck muss weg, sonst bleibt er da
    Ein ganzes Leben

    Chaos, Chaos - Geld ist mehr
    mehr wert als ich, als du, als ich
    Fressen allein genügt uns nicht
    Auch kein Geschwätz macht keinen satt

    Ich weiß, so schnell kann keine Liebe vergehn,
    die so groß ist und so wunderbar.

    Wir haben beide denselben Stern
    und dein Schicksal ist auch meins.
    Du bist mir fern und doch nicht fern,
    denn unsere Seelen sind eins.

    Und Und Und
    Und darum wird einmal ein Wunder geschehn
    und ich weiß, daß wir uns wiedersehn!

    (Instrumental)

    Ich weiß, es wird einmal ein Wunder geschehn
    und dann werden tausend Märchen wahr.
    Ich weiß, so schnell kann keine Liebe vergehn,

  • Nina Hagen: The Most Versatile Singer of All Time

    9:40

    Punk, metal, trip hop, opera, reggae, electro, jazz, industrial rock, experimental rock, mantra music, gospel, dance pop, blues, cabaret and so on... Nina you're the best! 💕

    Nina Hagen did more than sing when she appeared Thursday at Irving Plaza. While her four-piece band knocked out rock, funk and reggae vamps, Miss Hagen - in a haircut that made her look like an owl with a pale-blue ponytail - performed like an opera singer gone haywire.
    She ranted; she yodeled; she rapped in German, English and French; she growled; she sighed. She moaned like a cabaret singer and cackled like a witch; she belted like a diva and scatted up high like a modern-jazz singer. She even warbled the Habanera from Bizet's ''Carmen'' as the band played Michael Jackson's ''Beat It.'' And at every mercurial phrase, she was in complete control, vocally and theatrically. (Jon Pareles, February 5, 1984, Funk-Rock: Nina Hagen and Band).

    El concierto fluiría con temas de un solo género a la vez, pero diferentes e intercalados entre sí, sin ambages: del rock al rockabilly-swing, pasando por el reggae, el dub, el ska, el soul, el belcanto, el country, y hasta el canto tipo cabaret. Lo prodigioso aquí es la capacidad de Hagen para eliminar cualquier viso de solemnidad, aun en los momentos más sensibles vuelve rugoso, quebradizo y sucio, todo lo que canta, aun dentro de su virtuosismo vocal: es su desbordada vehemencia interpretativa lo que unifica su vasta paleta sonora. (Patricia Peñaloza, 2005, Nina Hagen demostró ser maestra en el arte de punkear lo que toca, La Jornada).

    PD: The two last clips don't show the versatility of her in terms of musical genres or something. It shows how she makes it looks so effortless/funny and I thought that was a good way to finish the video. There will be a second part made for this video!

    Catharina Nina Hagen is a German singer, songwriter, and actress. She is known for her theatrical vocals and is often referred to as the Godmother of Punk due to her prominence during the punk and new wave movements in the late 1970s and early 1980s.
    From the album Unbehagen (1979).

    Lyrics :

    Es riecht so gut
    Pass auf, dass du nicht gescnappt wirst!
    Sie sind nmlich hinter dir her,
    Du alter Kiffer
    Dabei geht Ihre Geschellschaft am Alkoholismus zugrunde,
    Aber dich jagen sie - dich!

    I wanna go to Africa to the black jah rastaman
    To the black culture (Heaven I, I and I, what you mean?)
    I will do things like my black friends do it
    Do delaomgi... Holaotrihi.... Cucou
    Greetings from Germany

    Was soll ich denn aber in Africa als Frau, als Frau
    Wenn der schwarze Mann die schwarze Frau kastriert
    au au Castraction
    Get up, stand up for the black revolution
    For the revolution of the revolution
    Get up, stand up!

    40:16

    After two albums and a little time off for bad behavior, Nina came to New York City looking for a fight, and she found it with Nunsexmonkrock.
    Nunsexmonkrock totally grinds. She talks about everything, from the church ('Antiworld') to drugs ('Smack Jack') to religious obsessions ('Taitschi Tarot') to pompous futuristic declarations ('Future Is Now') to alien life ('UFO'). But even if you cannot make out the actual lyrics - and I sure can't most of the time - the very sound of the music is enough to drive you wild. Nina gets even more production-concerned on this album, which usually means featuring tons and tons and tons of vocal overdubs; sometimes there's as much as four or five Ninas vocalizing at the same time, each one in a different key and a different voice, yet in some perverse manner these overdubs merge together real well.

    Ich war beim Bums, da fiel er mir gleich auf:
    Wie er da langsichlich, als wär' er allein da.
    Naklar, naklar der Typ war einfach süss.
    Da wollt ich ran, wollt mich mal schnell bemerkbar machen

    Rangehen rangehen
    Immer Schritt auf Schritt
    Und Schritt auf'n andern Schritt
    Immer ran
    Das geht ein, zwei, drei los! Ran! Rangehen!

    Mein Knie war weich, mein Kopf war heiss wie er
    Als er mich da so heftig anvisierte.
    Na klar, na klar, da musste was passieren,
    Denn die Musik war so danach, die war wie die hier

    Rangehen rangehen
    Immer Schritt auf Schritt
    Und Schritt auf'n andern Schritt
    Immer ran
    Das geht ein, zwei, drei los! Ran! Rangehen!

    Rangehen, rangehen!
    Wenn du scharf bist, musst du rangehen!
    Hingehen, hingehen!
    Dann ist alles gut, ist alles O.K. jeje

    Wenn du scharf bist, musst du rangehen!
    Hingehen hingehen!
    Dann ist alles gut, is alles O.K jeje

    Ich stürzte auf ihn los
    Er stürtzte auf mich
    Wir stürzten aufeinander los. Unglaublich!
    Ich sagte Sorry und Ich heisse Rosi.
    Er sagte Rosie, sie gefällen mir so sie!

    Rangehen, rangehen
    immer Schritt auf Schritt
    Und schritt auf'n andern Schritt
    immer ran, das geht ein, zwei, drei los!
    Rangehen
    Rangehen!

    Wenn du scharf bist, musst du rangehen
    Hingehen, hingehen
    Dann ist alles gut.
    Isi alles O.K. jeje

    Hingehen, hingehen

    NunSexMonkRock
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    NunSexMonkRock is the debut studio album by German singer Nina Hagen. It was released on June 12, 1982 by CBS Records. It marked Hagen's first release since her departure from the Nina Hagen Band and was also her first album with all songs in English language. Hagen recorded the album in New York City with Mike Thorne and collaborated with musicians Paul Roessler, Ferdi Karmelk, and Karl Rucker when writing the songs for the album. The lyrics deal with various themes including motherhood, religion, drug abuse, and UFOs. Musically, NunSexMonkRock is an experimental rock with influences of post-punk and new wave music.

    Upon its release, NunSexMonkRock received mixed reviews from music critics. While some praised Hagen's theatrical vocals, others criticized its experimental production. Rolling Stone called it the most unlistenable album ever made. Commercialy, the album achieved a moderate success. In the United States, it peaked at number 184 on the Billboard 200. In Germany, it reached number twenty-seven, and also peaked inside the top forty in other countries, such as New Zealand and Norway. Smack Jack was the only single released from the album. It managed to be successful in Norway where it peaked at number seven.
    Background
    In 1979, after working on the movie Cha Cha with Herman Brood and Lene Lovich, Hagen met the Dutch guitarist Ferdinand Ferdi Karmelk, with whom she later had a daughter Cosma Shiva. Together they started working on new music after Hagen's departure from the Nina Hagen Band.

    After her European tour was canceled in 1980, Hagen moved to the United States and signed with Bennett Glotzer, the former manager of Frank Zappa. She began working on songs in English, since most of her previous material was in German and after six month she returned to Germany with her new tour. Shortly after discovering she was pregnant, Hagen broke up with Karmelk and moved back to Los Angeles. In 1982, Hagen signed a new recording deal with CBS Records.
    Critical reception
    Upon its release, NunSexMonkRock received mixed reviews from music critics. Bil Carpenter at AllMusic gave it four and a half star out of five, calling it an eccentric rock material and praising Hagen's vocal diversity. Robert Christgau commented that she does have a new-wave sense of humor - instead of taking on Maria Callas with her umpteen-octave range she does impressions of Linda Blair and Mercedes McCambridge.
