Rio Reiser – König von Deutschland

Arguably, one of the greatest German songs. It’s so famous it basically has become folklore. It’s a satirical view on German politics and culture of the 80s. Short, witty, and on point. It has been covered countless times. Even Metallica play it when touring in Germany.

I lay on my bed and picture how it would be if I weren’t who I am but chancellor, emporer, king or queen… All that and much more I would do if I were the king of Germany.
