For our fifth meeting Georg an me went to the Y campus at TAMK after a class. We chilled in one of the big couches and started to talk about our planned topic music.
Music is very important for me and my buddy Georg. But I had no idea about Austrian music at all. Sure Austria is famous for its classic stars like Mozart or Brahms, but I did not know that there are also a lot of modern musicians that are really successful on the music market. Georg reminded me that I once posted a music video from Parov Stelar on my Facebook wall. The funny thing: I did not know that he is Austrian. Georg told me that he is famous all over the world as a DJ and a producer, but not that much known in Austria. Crazy story! Here a link to the music video of Parov Stelar:
One of the most famous Austrian musicians was Falco. He was the first Austrian and the first one with a german song who had a number one single in the American Billboard Charts. Falco was a real charismatic guy and had a real fuck off mentality. He was the best example for somebody with a high self-confidence. He always seemed to look down at everybody and was really arrogant. But that was his way to advertise himself and he was really successful with it. Unfortunately Falco died in a car accident. Drugs and alcohol were found in his body afterwards. Here a link for his most famous single Rock me Amadeus:
To do some grammar, I learned the conjugation of “singen” (to sing) and “hören” (listen).
|ich singe = I sing||ich höre = I listen|
|Du singst = you sing||Du hörst = you listen|
|Er/sie/es singt = he/she/it sings||Er/sie/es hört = he/she/it listens|
|Wir singen = we sing||Wir hören = we listen|
|Ihr singt = you sing||Ihr hört = you listen|
|Sie singen = they sing||Sie hören = they listen|
We already reached the half of our study plan and our planed number of meetings. I hope you enjoy my posts and it would be nice if you leave a comment.
