Step into German -- Links to popular German music!

STEP INTO GERMAN is one of my all-time favorite websites. Among other things, it's a collection German music, organized geographically.

In fact, the first four songs (recently added) in the top row are popular songs that bands have sung about their hometowns. The videos added enhance our enjoyment, and almost make us feel as if we've had a peak into their world.

Today, let's look at the songs currently listed in the top row.
1. Die Toten Hosen (The Dead Pants) sing about Düsseldorf
2. Meni & Dave rap about Stuttgart
3. The Wise Guys skat and sing a cappella about Köln (Cologne)
4. Ernst Schultz sings about Nürnberg and its history of the Meistersänger.

Take a listen HERE

--> Which song do you think does the best job promoting its city?
--> Which video do you think is most successful?
--> Do you think that the success of the two are related? Explain!

Of course, comments are welcome about other songs on the site, too!
