Hi Michael,

please tell me your favourite music style than I can make suggestions. It's better to learn with music you like :-)

best regards Angel


I like the lightly songs or the sad one ( about love ).


Maybe songs by Yvonne Catterfeld would interest you (My personal recommendation, I really like her songs ;-))


Hallo Michael,

have a look to youtube

Another good way to train with music is here https://lyricstraining.com/en. So when you found german bands you like, search for their songs there.

best regards Angel


Just enter "German songs" in the discussion stream and you will find a gazillion of songs.


Oomph! and Rammstein are awesome german hard rock bands with a few slow songs (Ohne Dich by Rammstein is a really lovely one)


Hi Mike,

Rammstein has a few good songs but many here in Germany don't forget their far-right roots for a good reason. I would call them a controversial band. So please be careful and listen to their lyrics well.

no offence and best regards Angel


Most of the German music I listen to is rap, and it's pretty much all explicit, but here's a list of some of my favourite German artists (each has quite a lot of decent music)

Kollegah Favourite Yung Hurn Maeckes RAF Camora Marsimoto Caspa Ramstein UFo361 Kontra K Jimmy Hendricks 187 Strassenbande Ali As Bausa Celo & Abdi Chefket Die Gebruder Brett Gestort aber Geil Jan Delay Savas Trettman

    Seeing your comment about sad songs about love, I recommend "Totgeliebt" by Tokio Hotel. (Tokio Hotel is my favorite band...)

    I find it interesting, because the title means "love to death", but not in a airy way of "I love her to death!", but rather, dying because of love.
