MICHAEL AND THE FIREBIRDS, Der Knüller Mausi Müller, 1964Posted: April 30, 2009
The majority of German Beat songs were sung in English but as silly as most of them were, I still like the ones best that were sung in German. For no other reason than that I like these songs very much, here are a couple of my favorites.
Michael and the Firebirds from Cologne recorded this stormy German cover-version of Freddy Cannon`s Abigail Beecher in 1964. Two years later their vocalist Michael Kogel hit with Los Bravos selling over one million copies of Black Is Black world-wide.
