ELLEN SABRI, He-He Herr Mayer was macht die Lust, 1970Posted: September 25, 2009
I sometimes have the feeling that I might not find anything really weird any more but then stuff like this turns up. Of course I was curious when I saw the sleeve but it was not until I got home that I found out more about the record. These Songs were performed in the film Liebesmarkt in Dänemarkt, one of the countless sex-comedies that came out in the late 60´and early 70´s. Surprisingly 2.5 million people saw this film when it came out in 1970. It still ranks among the 100 most successful German movies at the box-office since 1968. As a side note the famous B-movie actress Sybil Danning played one of her first roles in this movie. Most recently she played in Quentin Tarantino´s Grindhouse, in a trailer called Werewolf Women of the SS and in Rob Zombie´s remake of Halloween.
I had never heard of Liebesmarkt in Dänemark and I bet most of the people who saw it forgot about it quickly. After pornography was suddenly not illegal in Germany any more in 1969 the sex-industry boomed and sex-movies and shops were opening up everywhere. Nonetheless the much more permissive Denmark was still regarded as a mecca of sin and sexuality.
Well, I know you can´t see me blushing right now, but this is a pornographic record. The up-beat dance music and the cute singing contrast greatly with the very explicit lyrics. The A-side is better musically although Ellen Sabri does sing about showing her breasts and her butt and some other things to a certain Herr Mayer. The B-side Pornoparadies Dänemark is were it gets really dirty. Dicks , pussies, fucking, dildos, cute Ellen sings about all of it in a very light-hearted and carefree manner. That´s really weird.
I definetely won´t be able to play this record anywhere else but here on this blog so enjoy…
