Best German Songs of All TimeGermany has produced some of the most renowned composers, singers and bands over the years, which isn't surprising as the country is the largest music market in Europe, and third largest in the world. Now it's time to show some love to our favorite German artists and decide which German songs are the best. (I do want to note that a song does not have to be sung in German to be eligable for this list, what matters is that the artist is from Germany).
Beethoven is widely regarded as the greatest composer of all time so it should come as no surprise that he is on this list. Symphony No. 5 is considered to be one of his best creations. Odds are you've already heard the first part of this symphony before.
Obviously a very important piece of music history, I've never listened to much classical music, but I've definitely heard this before.
Scorpions are regarded as the most succesful German rock band, and with good reason as their songs simply rock. This song was about the fall of the Soviet Union, which is the change the song refers to in the title. When the Berlin Wall fell on November 9, 1989, the song became the unofficial anthem for the German Reunification. So not only is it a good song, but it's an important song as well.
Another one of the greatest composers of all time, Johannes Brahms was especially influenced by classical composers such as Mozart and Haydn, among many others. Hungarian Dance No. 5 is one of his most popular and loved compositions. Brahms' Hungarian Dances are among the most popular compositions of light classical music.
I Want Out is one of Helloween's most famous songs, written by then guitarist Kai Hansen. The song was about him actually wanting to leave the band, which he eventually did. The lyrics also resonate a lot with people as many people in their lives "want out" of something, whether it's something in their life or what society and the people around them dictate.
I love this song so much
