Ich vertrete gerne die These, dass jede gute Band mindestens einen Song im Programm hat, in dem es um Vögel geht. Der Meister des Vogelliedgutes dürfte dabei zweifelsohne Mark Oliver Everett von den Eels sein. Schon auf seinem allerersten Album, noch unter dem Namen E!E, gibt es einen Song namens "Mockingbird Franklin" und die gefiederten Freunde haben ihn seitdem wohl nie losgelassen. Es ist also nicht verwunderlich, dass Herr Everett auf meiner Playlist Birdsongs gleich desöfteren auftaucht.

Aber es befinden sich viele weitere herausragende Künstler, wie z. B. The Cure, Roxy Music, Prefab Sprout, Tom Waits, Scott Matthew, Neil Young, Bonnie "Prince" Billy, The Beatles, Stornoway und und und auf der Playlist, die meine These untermauern. Es gibt natürlich noch viel mehr Lieder über Vögel, aber ich habe einfach meinen Geschmack walten lassen und nur die für mich besten in die Liste aufgenommen - wahrscheinlich habe ich aber auch welche vergessen und ganz sicher kommen im Laufe der Zeit noch einige hinzu.

Ob es die Sehnsucht nach dem Fliegen und der damit verbundenen Freiheit ist, dass sehr viele dieser Lieder sehr melancholisch sind? Eine absolute Ausnahme ist "Do the funky Chicken" von Rufus Thomas :-)

I am convinced that every good band has at least one song in its program in which it comes to birds. The master of good bird songs is without any doubt Mark Oliver Everett of the Eels. Even on his very first album, under the name of E! E, there is a song called "Mockingbird Franklin" and the feathered friends have since then never let him go. So it is not surprising that Mr. Everett's bird songs are on my playlist several times.

But there are many other great musicians such as The Cure, Roxy Music, Prefab Sprout, Tom Waits, Scott Matthew, Neil Young, Bonnie "Prince" Billy, The Beatles, and Stornoway who are on my playlist and support my thesis. There are of course many more songs about birds, but I just dicided to add only the best to my list - probably I have forgotten one but certainly over the time I will add a few more.

Maybe it's the longing for flying and the feeling of freedom that many of these songs are very melancholic? An absolute exception is "Do the Funky Chicken" by Rufus Thomas :-)

  1. Ich musste gerade so lachen - ich dachte jetzt kommt eine kurze Liste an Liedern, aber deine These hat richtig Substanz!
    Und tatsächlich, nach einigem Scrollen, fand ich dann auch meinen Liebling: Blackbird von den Beatles.
    Vielleicht find ich ja auch noch 'nen Zweiten, wenn ich nach und nach alle anhöre!
    Was es wohl ist, mit den Vögeln, dass alle so fasziniert? :D
