YOOOOOOOOO! This guy’s name is Max Raabe and he’s super fucking popular in Germany (I dunno about any other german-speaking countries), and he and his band Das Palast Orchester is really famous for covering really popular german pop songs in the style of old-fashioned big band/orchestra and they’re super fucking popular (seriously cannot stress how popular they are) and perform all over the place and when they perform, they make it out as a really, classy thing :) Also, they perform dressed looking classy as fuck: They originally only covered german-language pop songs, but they’ve covered some english-language ones, and I’d highly suggest listening to some of their other songs! The band’s been around since 1986 and they’ve got a shitload of albums, so you have a lot to go through, but my personal favourites are Küssen kann man nicht alleine (you can’t kiss by yourself) -the music video is super cute btw, Mein Gorilla hat ne Villa (My Gorilla has a Villa), Das Schlaflied (the Lullaby), and Ich bin nur wegen dir hier (I’m only here because of you). Incase you’re wondering how kick ass Max Raabe und Palast Orchester is, just know that Marilyn Manson had them play at his wedding and even supposedly said “If Max Raabe doesn’t play, no one will” and there’s this pretty cool picture of the two of them together: And in a tv interview afterwards, he said that they played some old german pop songs and then just “jammed together”. But seriously, if you’re not listening to them, you’re missing out!
SO YOU KNOW THAT POST GOING AROUND WITH THE WEIRD “WE WILL ROCK YOU”?!
APPARENTLY THE SAME GUY DID “OOPS I DID IT AGAIN”
AND I AM CRYING
ALSo LiSteN TO THE END IT IS IMPORTANT
To promote Animaniacs before the show’s premiere, a giant balloon in the shape of Yakko was placed on top of the water tower on the Warner Bros. lot. Unfortunately, no one told Bob Daley, who ran the studio. When he pulled into work that morning, he thought someone had put a bad Mickey Mouse balloon on the tower and ordered it removed. The inflatable Yakko was in place for less than 12 hours, and then popped shortly after he came down. Writer Paul Rugg was able to snap a photo to prove it happened.
