The song, especially the political song, has often been declared dead in SubCulture - TV Heaven. But just a look at the monthly list of best songs - a hit parade of a special kind - shows how colourful and lively the scene of musicians singing'German' is in this country: Songs with critical, thought-provoking lyrics and music that is not necessarily based on established listening habits.
This can go into many styles: classical chanson, folk, pop, blues, rock, jazz or rap. They all have a long tradition that can be traced back to the troubadours in the Middle Ages. The project, which is based on four 3-CD sets, offers for the first time an overview of the recent history of songwriters in Germany-West and Germany-East from the early sixties to the eighties of the last century. The first 3-CD set is about rediscovering tradition, about bank songs, utility poetry and current songs as well as German folk and new folk singers in the old Federal Republic.
They did not want to cultivate the folk song as a museum tradition, but rather to create a new democratic type of song. Ougenweide brought a new musical colour to the spectrum of new German folk singers by mixing pop and rock musical instruments with old instruments such as the crumhorn and hurdy-gurdy. Achim Reichel was one of the first rock musicians to set classical German poets to music. The themes of the other sets are the songs of the politically turbulent times of the seventies.

The folkrevival also brought with it a broad occupation with dialects. Many songwriters rediscovered the dialects of their home region as a buried tradition. In Stuttgart, Wolle Kriwanek sang the Swabian blues. Not to forget the other names that shaped the scene between the mids and early s, such as Bernies Autobahn Band, Ina Deter, Joana and Konstantin Wecker. Then there are songs and chanson in the GDR - taken seriously and promoted, but suspected as critical songs and suppressed as oppositional ones.
Artists like Hanns Eisler, Ernst Busch and Gisela May continued the tradition of political song and chanson from the s and s. Wolf Biermann followed this up in the early sixties, became a critic of bureaucratic socialism and was banned from appearing and publishing. Under increased state influence, the FDJ singing movement developed from this with at times 4, clubs, including the Oktoberklub and the Songgruppe of the TU Dresden. In the s Gerhard Gundermann, Stephan Krawczyk, Hans-Eckardt Wenzel and other songwriters articulated the difference between proclaimed ideology and reality and thus contributed to the Strafbefehl - Various - Liedermacher In Deutschland - Für Wen Wir Singen Vol.
