Beatiful Fräuleins

Chicks on Beat NO.5.In the early '60s, Germany was still trying to come to terms with its past.The Split between East & West Germany was the overall Topic of the following Years.But with the post-war economic miracle the german Youth was eager for foreign Pop Culture.German record companies refused to hear the call for something more hip, and continued to force-feed schmaltzy, high camp fare to their Artists.While most of the younger german Artists turn their Heads overseas,a lot of foreign Artists discover Germany as a marketplace for their Music.In the 60's nearly every european and a lot U.S. Artists sang their Hits in german.From France Gall,Petula Clark,Milva,Dusty Dringfield to Majorplayers like Johnny Cash.So there was only room for a few german Singers to reach for international Standards or even cross the Boarders to the rest of the World.Most have to stuck with a kind of low-grade pop lite that gave German music a bad name.Here are a very few that were granted access to the catalogue of cool.Viel Spaß
