late 20th century German music

Jump to last reply

I find listening to music has been a terrific tool for improving my language skills.

In an effort to improve my German for a potential trip next summer, I thought I'd like to listen to some popular German (or Austrian) acts and frankly I don't know much beyond Nina Hagen and Falco although I've enjoyed listening to Schubert (der Wanderer, etc...) to exercise my vocabulary skills. I feel there *must* be so much more out there.

Ballads, pop music, alternative, funk, showtunes, I'm open to ideas... and really look forward almost more than anything to discovering some talented artists. I like music from most decades of the 20th century generally (although for Germany, I'd be interested in music from 1950 and beyond more, maybe 1920s), less so the 21st century.

Here are some examples of what I've enjoyed in other languages:

French (so much really): Barbara, Charles Aznavour, Sheila, Dalida, Indochine, Mylene Farmer, Etienne Daho, Jeanne Moreau, Les Colocs, Jo Bocan

Spanish: Marco Antonio Solis, Luis Miguel, Celso Pina, Lhasa de Sela, el Gran Silencio

Dutch: Boudewijn de Groot, Ramses Shaffy, Tante Leen, Vader Abraham, Toontje Lager, Abel, De Kast
