EVELYN KÜNNEKE, Ein Königreich für ein Glas Bier, 1960Posted: March 26, 2009
Springtime has finally arrived here in Berlin. One of my favourite things to do in spring is to sit outside in a cafè and drink a beer. And to smoke a cigarette with it. Alcohol and cigarettes go together.
So, this week I´ll post some records that remind us that there was a time when that sentence was not a start of an argument.
I enjoy this record for two reasons: It`s sung by local Berlin anti-star Evelyn Künneke, whose praise I`ve sung before elsewhere, and the song itself is a simple ode to beer. A kingdom for a glass of beer!
