Just when I thought my love affair with the Internet might be ending, something comes along to rekindle the old magic, namelyMax Raabe & Palast Orchester. This German outfit specializes in twenties and thirties cabaret numbers but has also been covering current pop songs. Like Oops! I Did it Again by the one and only Britney Spears. I demand that you listen to it right now. Right. Now.
I could only find one US tour date–Sunday, November 21st in Atlanta, Georgia. If there are tickets available, I would seriously consider a roadtrip for this show. I’m not kidding. That is how much I love my new friend Max. Love. Him.
A special thanks to Trout Fishing in South-Central Wisconsin, which has mp3s of Oops! I Did it Again, along with several other Max Raabe tracks:
- Mambo No. 5
- We are the Champions
- Let’s Talk About Sex
- We Will Rock You.
