THE TRAVELLERS, Romeo & Julia, 1969Posted: September 4, 2009
This type of music and humour mostly appealed to more conservative-minded people. Old people. That was the Travellers´audience. Old people didn´t like Hippies but unlike Freddy Quinn who wrote and recorded one of the most aggressive German Anti-Hippie songs, the Travellers Romeo & Julia strikes a much more sympathetic tone. These old guys kinda liked Hippies.
Strangely the chorus Wir (We) is the same in both songs, but they are different songs. Which came first I don´t know.
Both songs co-written by Hans Bradtke who also did the drawing.
