This One's Got Sole
:: Gunnar Wiklund - Du Bist Schön Wie Der Sonnenschein ::
It is truly a momentous time in Record Robot history. Maybe all of Internet history. I believe I am the first person to ever put up an mp3 of a song from a one-sided flexi-disc advertising lady shoes. In German. Sung by a
Of course if my knowledge of German wasn't restricted to a few foul phrases and how to say Echo & The Bunnymen, I'd have put this up much, much earlier.
So, here's the deal. The song is about how you, the woman and potential shoe buyer, are beautiful like the sunshine. And how you should pick up some chic, comfy, attractive shoes made by Servas. You know you can't resist. It's Gunnar Wiklund, an evidently-at-some-point-famous guy, melting your heart with his velvet pipes and prying open your pocketbook with his dulcet intonations. The narrator's voice ain't bad either. Just look down at those tired old things you've been wearing. I bet you are getting callouses, and when you take them off it smells like pimento loaf. You deserve an upgrade, fraulein.
I am sure this record is a lot funnier if you understand German, but I'm content to chuckle when he sings "Du du" at the beginning of the hook. Auf Wiedersehen!
