The Frau was trying to figure out the best way to wish everyone a Happy New Year when she thought, ha, what better way to do that than with a little German jingle. After all, this blog isn’t called One Big Yodel for nothing.
Ja, ja the Frau’s spoken German may leave a lot to be desired, but she can singt. She even recorded this jingle auf Deutsch for a Swiss ski brand a few years ago along with a prominent Swiss entertainer. The commercial never aired, but the Frau was so proud of her Deutsch that she set the song to a few winter photographs so she could allow her linguistic abilities to linger a little longer. Apparently, the song these new winter lyrics are based on, “Wann wirds mal wieder richtig Sommer,” is a popular song in Switzerland made famous by Rudi Carrell. Most Swiss don’t realize the tune is an American one. Recognize it?
