01. SCHÖN VON HINTEN
This song is a song about beauty. “You look good from behind (from the back)”. When you think about good looking people, you always think of them looking good from the front-side. so now, it’s another perspective, and it can also mean – what a pity! – you look good, when you’re gone. The refrain means: how could I miss you if you are always around me?
This is a song about a material girl (that’s why you hear all the time brands from fashion-designers), but when she meets Brezel, she won’t need all that shit anymore.
03. LES CHANSONS D’A
This is my favorite song. About songs about love (“A” means love, Amour) It says something like: my songs are all about love, I know, it’s a boring theme. But all the song is build on word-games. If you say “un sujet bateau”, it means “a boat-subject” (“a boring subject”). But then the song is playing more and more with words, and at the end, you are flying with a love-jet.
04. DACTYLO ROCK
Sometimes it’s really difficult to write songs. This day, I was sitting in front of my writing-machine and had no inspiration. But suddenly, I saw all this signs: ( ) ” ” ! … And then I got this idea of a secretary who is in love and who sees in all these punctuation-signs other (love-)meanings.
“Touch me”. This song is a cover-version from my first band: “Lolitas”. “I am the star of your nights”. Pourquoi pas?
This is all about science-fiction. Lovers are floating around the universe, they are lost in space.
07. ACH ACH LIEBLING
This is a funny song in 80ies-new-wave-style. “Oh oh darling, I just love what you’re doing. When you’re dancing in your pyjamas … ” It’s a little bit ironical.
08. I LOVE YOU ONO
This is a cover from my favorite Japanese band: the Plastics. Their English was not the best, but they didn’t care! Originally, the song is called “I love you, oh no!”, but I changed it into Ono as an homage to Yoko Ono.
09. SWEET CHARLOTTE
This is a song about Charlotte Gainsbourg. She is not really a traditional beauty, but really charming. So the song says, Hush, hush, sweet Charlotte, how beautiful you look now! Your nose is still looking like a cucumber, but the way you’re smiling!!!
10. MUSIQUE AUTOMATIQUE
A song about our love to music. As you know, we love a lot of different music-styles. We would hate to be prisoners in a special style. But really, what would be our live without music? Horror!
11. EXAKT NEUTRAL
German perfection. It’s not too warm and not too cold, “exactly neutral”.
This is a German translation from Platic Bertrand’s hit “Supercool”. Whap doo whap! I think, this guy was smoking a lot of pot when he was writing his lyrics.
13. COMME UN GARÇON
When I was a little girl, I was singing along to the radio-hit “Comme un garçon” (“Like a boy”) from Sylvie Vartan. Yeah, like a boy I’m wearing a leatherjacket, like a boy I’m driving a motorbike and so on and so on, but: In your arms, I just feel like a little girl!
This is a song about moody guys. I don’t know why all my boyfriends were so moody! I had to suffer a lot, But suffering inspires you to new songs!
15. MIAU MIAU
This is a song about a male cat coming home too late (the next morning) and getting trouble with his female cat (she saw him all night long dancing on some strangers’ roofs.)
16. CARTE POSTALE
Dear friends, I’m writing you a postcard from the south. It’s a pity that you are freezing, here it’s really hot, and I’m gambling, and I’m cheating and I’m winning!
Who is in, who is out? That is the question.
18. FÜR IMMER 16
I wanna stay forever sixteen!
19. PARTY ANTICONFORMISTE
I buy a lot of records on the flea-market. Mostly disco-records. This is a collage about disco-records and a song about disco-dancing: “You should be dancing, let the music speak!”
20. HOLIDAY INNN
A girl is bringing a boy to a hotel, she wants to show him something that he never saw before and that he will never forget. Qu’est-ce que c’est???
21. PUSH IT
This is a short version from “Salt and Pepper”-Push it. a song about ejaculatio precox.
22. LIEBE ZU DRITT
You know what? I’m bored about my space, my e-mails and my sms. I’m just gonna go with 2 people in bed! That’s real!
23. C’EST LA MORT
I’m living since a long time in Berlin. But I am an employee from the French embassy. So I went to all kinds of bars and asked everybody what they can say in French. This song is the result of this questioning.
24. WIR TANZEN IM VIERECK
We’re dancing in a square, we’re dancing concentrated. I dance with you. You dance with me.
