Oohoohoo, Du hübsches Ding
It's not every day I love a song so much the first time I hear it that I run to download it to my iTunes immediately, but it happened today.

Ding, by German group Seeed:


Not only is the video fun to watch from a furry viewpoint (ipequey, it's got raccoons!), but it's a hell of a fun song on its own.

Many thanks to cargoweasel for posting this!

Hey, pacerfox, can you translate? o(:o)

EDIT: bigbluefox was kind enough to translate the entire song! Check it out here: http://bigbluefox.livejournal.com/281118.html

Thanks, BBF! o(:o)

It was certainly new to me!

Why don't you ask a German? :)

The song is about a guy who is married with children, who wants to go out and have fun like he used to back in the days, girls, drinks, etc. So he leaves his kids and wife behind and goes clubbing, meets a nice girl that wants to sleep with him, and in the last minute, he remembers how much he loves his wife and kids, so he leaves that girl alone (by a bad excuse, he drinks too much and goes to the loo to vomit) and goes back home to his beloved wife. :)

The chorus goes like this:

Ohohoh, you beautiful thing, I'll hide my wedding ring,
ding-a-ling-a-ling, we could do it, but instead I sip my drink.

Ohohoh, you beautiful thing, you'll be queen and I'll be king,
ding-a-ling-a-ling seeing you makes me sing: "Tingalingaling, you pretty thing!"

Very cool, thanks! And thank you for the full translation on your LJ. o(:o)

Just for that, I won't eat you...or maybe I will....

I'm surprised you hadn't heard of that one! It had me on a Seeed kick for a while; their other songs are sadly deficient in the raccoon department, but still pretty good.
It's kind of amazing, how silly club lyrics can take on such gravity when they're delivered in German. Like opera, but with a back beat. ^.^

Heh, true! I am horrible in keeping up with current music, so when this was new, it got right past me.

I don't know about German music in general; I don't know that much, really. But I know I am obsessed with this song. o(:o)

Me, too...and even more so now that I know what the lyrics mean!

I will definitely have to check that out!

hahaha..yeah, I've got the full album with that song on it :3

German Hip Hop hooray! ;)

Thought you'd enjoy the raccoons...even if they are a little creepy. o(:o)
