Happy Wonky Heidi

Instead of telling you about the usual stuff that makes me happy like chocolate and cake I want to tell you about last nights Sing-along-concert.

I've said before that it is my deep belief that singing makes you happy and it certainly works for me.

Luckily in Munich we have a thing that's called Volxgesang, which comes from the word folk musik (http://volxgesang.de/).

It's basically an evening at the pub where you can sing-along to about 25 old-time favourites and chart-hits being accompanied by guitar or piano. The song texts are projected to the wall because we all know that we never can remember the lyrics. 

Julian, my favourite entertainer is a proper Robbie Williams on stage and knows how to please a crowd.

The one rule the organizers have is: You can never sing too loud or too off-key! 

Yesterday the set list contained songs like, unfortunately I can't remember every single one:

Hotel California
Morning has broken
Lemon tree
Dancing Queen
Mercedes Benz
Country Roads
Here comes the sun

German/Austrian titles:
Ham kummst
Ich war noch niemals in New York
Über den Wolken 
Freude schöner Götterfunken
Am Tag als Conny Kramer starb
Du entschuldige, I kenn di
Griechischer Wein

So you get the gist. It is soo liberating to sing out loud in public, no matter how out-of-tune and I always keep waving my arms like Pavarotti, full of passion. I can't wait for the next concert but as I can't make the September one I'll have to wait until the 21st of October. 

Come and join me, it'll be a night to remember!
