Beerfest season is over. It’s a hard reality to swallow. This is however, great news for my wallet situation. Moving + beerfests has proved to be quite a doozy. BUT just because this epic time of year has come to an end, I still have more to share with you guys who are trying to live vicariously through Germans by attending American “Oktoberfests”. Don’t get me wrong, I attended Wurstfest in New Braunfels, TX (HAPPENING NOVEMBER 1-10th THIS YEAR – A MUST ATTEND Y’ALL TEXAS FOLK!) and had a blast. It was fairly authentic, too. It’s just not the same.
One big reason it’s not the same is the music. Oh music, bringing people together since… OK tried to Google this answer and got no definitive answer. But we’ll say music has been bringing people together since the beginning of man time. But no music brings people together quite like Oktoberfest jams. One second, you are surrounded by strangers. The next, the band starts, and you are besties with the 50 year old creeper next to you and it’s fabulous.
I created a Spotify playlist for those of you who want to be prepared for Oktoberfest. It is truly worth preparation as singing along makes it even better. Oh, and “Fliegerlied” has a dance to go along with it, so be sure to learn the motions before your trip.
Additionally, each year there are songs dubbed “Wiesn Hits.” For 2012, I’d say “Ai Se Eu Te Pego” was a biggie. I also love that “Country Roads” is always hugely popular; it makes for such a great singalong.
But really, if you know any two German songs, you must know:
This song is played just about every 20 minutes and is easy to learn. You’ll want to join in the all the “Prost-ing”. I’m pretty sure my arm was sore from holding my beer up so much during this song. It goes like this:
Ein Prosit, ein Prosit, der Gemütlichkeit (repeat)
Translated: A toast, a toast, to comfort/togetherness/goodtimes/nodirecttranslationofthisword.
“Fliegerleid (So Ein Schoner Tag)”
After my first trip to Oktoberfest, I seriously could not quit playing this song. I wanted to know every word and dance move so I could go all out next time and you bet I go all out every time the band busts this song out.roasted green beans green card renewal green vegetables tom green county jail green bay game green thumb sir gawain and the green knight green stool cabrini green iphone 12 green green hornet marjorie taylor green simple green dark green poop jessica green green diarrhea green bay crime reports green lakes state park joshua green green color green heron green anole green bay press gazette obituaries green anaconda ceelo green anne of green gables movie green papaya green juice discovery green avocado green mattress tampa bay vs green bay green bay vs tampa bay crisp and green peter green green mountain green mill green mile cast green thumb industries stock green hills mall javonte green pine green jordan 1 green mountain power freecell green felt green day songs green discharge fiddlers green green card lottery green aesthetic wallpaper bowling green state university weather green bay green thumb industries seeing green lyrics green kitchen benefits of green tea green river draymond green stats green tree python green acres cast green smoothie recipes red light green light green lantern pizza green dot card green card news green boots green jordans gerald green green flowers green lantern cast green iphone 12 how to cook green beans green felt freecell green apple green man gaming green couch thuja green giant green leaf blue-green blue green algae big green egg grill green hoodie jamychal green green knight movie green check mark what colors make green green bay schedule stuffed green peppers green mountain coffee megan fox brian austin green site:https://foodietune.com/matcha-green-tea-lamingtons/ green velvet couch green dot app green tomatoes green curry green kitchen cabinets army green green street hooligans green giant massage green spa green stones sage green bridesmaid dresses green calcite arizona green tea can dogs eat green beans the big green
