PorchDrinking Playlist | Schlager From Another Mother
With the days growing shorter and the mercury dropping in the glass, it will take something more than your standard Top 40 hit to bring joy and energy back to your soul. Meet Schlager. It’s widely considered to be one of the cheesiest pop music forms in the world, but middle-aged Germans and Austrians still consume it with vigor. With danceable beats and cliche lyrical themes, you may wonder why I’d concoct such a playlist…
These are not the hits that you want These are the hits that you need. Given enough time, they will work their way into your soul (whether you speak German or not). You’ll never again consider hoisting a Maßkrug of Märzen without some Schlager to pair with it. You might even find yourself tuning into the Eurovision song contest every year, so you can hear the latest! When Schlager parties become the next big thing, don’t forget to send me an inivitation.
Whether you believe it or not, you’ll be thanking me very soon.
