HENRY HEISS, So will ich die Liebe nicht, 1964

Henry Heiss had a pretty cool name for an artist, because heiss means hot in German. Again I don´t know a thing about him.

“So will ich die Liebe nicht” (That´s not how I like love)  is a nice schlager-beat tune that is sung with the typical heavy pronounciation that was fashionable at the time and backed by even heavier reverberation.

Like an echo from an old, long gone  Berlin…

    Hi Andreas,

    As a non-native speaker of German, I’m wondering what you mean when you say that his pronunciation is heavy.


    John from Pieptone!

    Hi John,

    I meant that Henry Heiss is heavy on the R´s and S´s. He´s singing: “SSSo will ich die Liebe nicht. SSSo SSind meine TRRäume nicht. Denn ich will dich doch ganz für mich allein, Ohoho!…” and especially clear when he goes:” SSo sind meine TRRäumeRReRRein…” instead of a flat “Troy-meh-rhine” (Träumereien- Dreams). He pronounces the words very clearly instead of slurring certain words like you do if you would be speaking German. It was a certain style of singing and also anouncing on TV that was popular in the 50´s and 60´s. In the south of Germany, especially in Bavaria, people are also heavy on the R.

    Best wishes

    By the way, Pieptone is a great band!
