Helge Schneider – Es gibt Reis


Helge Schneider is a famous German musician, multi-instrumentalist, comedian, author, and filmmaker. He’s most famous for his expressive improvisations both in music and comedy. His work is absurd, crude, and often pure nonsense.

This is the video for Es gibt Reis (with English subtitles) which is one of my favorite songs of Helge. It was released back in 1993 and it’s about inviting a girl for dinner. What’s for dinner? “It’s rice, baby. Baby, baby, it’s rice. Wild girl, shake your hair for me…”.
