GPP Street Team – Make Some Noise

Michelle challenges us this month to add music to our blog musings…

I have decided to go for my nostalgic self and bring you a memory of Alexandra, a singer and songwriter between kitsch and kool… who died in 1969 at the young age of 27 in a car accident. The American band The Czars have recently covered one of her most famous songs “Mein Freund der Baum ist tot.”

I have a few CD’s of her songs and I absolutely love her soft and at the same time strong voice. It is a childhood memory for me – I remember when she died, and I was only 5 years old at the time.

The song itself may be bringing about this special late 60ies feeling which ultimately led to the Green movement in Germany.
