Hallo! Wie geht’s? This week, Max Raabe’s Tune for Tuesday is going to help us with our German! He wrote the song Für Frauen ist das kein Problem, and many others, to perform with his Berlin-based Palast Orchester, which he founded with fellow students while studying opera in Berlin. Together, Raabe and Palast Orchester perform covers of cabaret songs from the Weimar period as well as original songs that merge 1920s and 30s melodies with modern lyrics. Luckily for us, he also sings very clearly! So have a listen to this song and let us know what you think in the comments.
To help you understand the German, we recommend reading the lyrics as you listen or, if you’d like to hear the song played more slowly, you can watch the YouTube video below and select a slower playback speed by clicking on the settings symbol.
Remember, whether you’re learning French, Spanish, German, Italian or another language, you can continue your international music listening with our full Spotify and YouTube playlists below.
