New song for Borner

Recommended Posts

I know suggesting a song is the Owlstalk equivalent of stocking wet fingers into a plug socket but instead of the current pathetic attempt how about...

 

To the Dead Kennedy's punk classic California Uber Alles...

 

Julian Borner - Uber Alles

Julian Borner - Ub-er Alles

 

Uber Alles - Julian Borner

Uber Alles - Jul-ian Borner

 

At least it scans and it's only 4 words to remember.

Isn’t the phrase ‘Über Alles’ associated with the nazi party, and that’s why it was removed from the German National anthem?

 Bet he’d flipping love that!...

It predates the Nazis but It's probably not a good idea. The translation is harmless but he might take it the wrong way.

No. You're mixing up a lot of things. Deutschland Uber Alles is the original national anthem from the 19th century and was much loved by the Nazis but the tune is still the anthem. I'm not suggesting we sing the german national anthem with Julian Borners name over it ffs! 

California Uber Alles is a punk.song.

Uber Alles means First or Is best.

So it would mean 'Julian Borner is best' to the tune of a 70s punk.song.

Everything historically German isnt Nazi. Even the swastika isn't a Nazi symbol.

Beg to differ mate

 

They might not have been first to use it but it was a symbol they certainly used.

Agreed I’m 35 and if I see a swastika I think nazi or facists I know it’s not where it originated from but because of the strong baring it had with them and it’s perceptive affiliation my thoughts go straight there

 

i suppose just like when I think Bramall Lane I think of those scrubbers because they play there but it’s pretty common knowledge it was built as a cricket ground and both us and Sheffield FC I think used it before those scrubbers turned it into a sty

The punk song, by the Dead Kennedies, was a deliberate reference to the Nazis .it was claiming that the then California ( Pete something) governer was a fascist and used the old German anthem as s reference point.

His current song is good enough for me and Julian seems to like it as well!

Mon Dieu. Are we allowed to sing Rule Britannia then. Its reference to us ruling the waves might offend the French, Spanish, German, Argentinians (or pretty much every other sea-going nation really?
