Über'n großen Teich (w/Hannah B.)


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
This is a song written by a female singer I saw some months ago playing guitar and singing for an opening to a cool flower store in my neighborhood. Her name is Hannah, she's 19 years old, and I think she has a bright future.

Unfortunately for me, she now goes to school and lives in Berlin. But, who knows? Maybe, we'll do another one in the future.

This song is in the German language and it's making quite a come back here in Germany. English songs have been quite dominate on the radio for some time.

By the way, I'm doing the instruments on this one. (I'm the band) The Laughing Lavas, we're called. Me, myself and I.

The title means, "Across the big pond"

Viel Spaß,
Dave

Coax her along
Check your spelling Mark.

Thanks a lot for your comments. I think you'll be hearing from her in a few years. Most of her stuff is in English. But, I thought this one had the best hook. This one got my ear's attention when she played it.

Uber cool
The Laughing Lavas are doing great. You make for a nice pick up band. I assume you wrote the music as well.

It's cool to hear a foreign language (well at least is for me). Hannah does a really nice job, Dave

No
I didn't write the music. She strummed it on guitar and sang it. Then, I did the arrangement and the production. I had very little to do with the writing, unless you regard arranging part of writing the music,

Thanks Vic.

I have a mental image
of you kidnapping this 19 year old girl outside the flower stall. It was a good move.
She has a great voice and your music and production fits the song and her perfectly.
Cheers

Very nicely done
Great song, and lovely singing. You (and the rest of the band!) did a great job on this. Nice sounds, good arrangement, and nice mix. I love the Viel Spass, by the way! I haven't seen that since I lived near Stuttgart back in the mid-nineties. Nice job. Tell Hannah tell to get a computer and you guys can collaborate online! Peace.

I'd like to.....
do some more with her, but she's 19, she's in school and I think she should get into a band and concentrate on live music.

Maybe, we'll do another.

excellent
song and production on this very pleasant song. For all the beat and the speeding up of the words toward the end, there's a nice kind of flowing sensation about the song... a kind of calmness which is very appealing. Love the female vocal, regards M

This is great! Sorry it took me so long to get here for a listen. It's a great song and Hannah's vocals are very nice. You did a wonderful job on the mix. I love the little percussion fadeout ending. The instruments and accompaniment you chose were a perfect fit. Great job on this lava!

Dragonas said 3455 days ago (June 4th, 2008)
Very cool song!
I could hear this used as a jingle or being played in a Starbucks or something.
Very pleasing to the ear!
The vocals seem to slightly go up and down in volume as she sings.
If you "normalize" her voice, it would even out the volume fluxuations.
German is not an easy language to make sound soft in a melodic voice, (Compared to English or Italian), but this girl sounds so lovely.
Kudos to you on a catchy lil' song!

Thanks fot the tip
We were using a hand held mic. so, that might be the cause of the fluctuation, perhaps. German language music is making quite a come back not only in Germany, but as well as other European cities. But, I see what you're saying.

Kudos to You hope U get to see Her again !
lavalamp said 3453 days ago (June 6th, 2008)
Danke Lena
Swedish sometimes sounds a bit like German to me. Because you know English, too, I was hoping a Swede could catch on more. Maybe if I had posted the lyrics you could have better understood.

Thanks a bunch.
How do you sleep at this time of year? It's hard enough here in Dresden!

Sunny dreams,

I really like this...
...doesn't matter the language, though I'd be interested in the translation. It's a really nice tune and a cool arrangement by the Laughing Lavas.

In a nut shell. It's about her relationship with some dude back in the states. Maybe, a stormy one.
