Thread Name: Lyr/Tune Req: Songs by Hans Eisler
Subject: RE: Songs by Hans Eisler
What Wilfried posted is what Ernst Busch sings. IIRR, Tucholsky and Eisler collaborated on this and many other songs. They were meant to be sung, not written as poems and only later set to music. Tucholsky wrote much of his stuff for cabaret. There is a collection of his cabaret songs (with dots and some interesting anecdotes) published by Rowohlt-Verlag , 1983 (ISBN 3 498 06476 2), edited by Mary Gerold-Tucholsky (T.'s former wife and holder of his copyrights) and Hans-Georg Heepe.
