I've looked around for what I think is the Panzar tank song that the German's sing in the movie Battle of the Bulge movie (yeah, it's a goofy movie, but a interesting song). I'm either asking for the wrong thing because I can't seemed to find it.

Anybody got a hint where it may sit as an MP3?

Thanks guys.

You could search the various music P2P MP3 sources, song is called " Panzerleid"

I can email it to you if can't find it.

Here you go...first hit too...ingeb.org/Lieder/obssturm.html

-Panzerlied-


Ob's stürmt oder schneit,
Ob die Sonne uns lacht,
Der Tag glühend heiß
Oder eiskalt die Nacht.
Bestaubt sind die Gesichter,
Doch froh ist unser Sinn,
Ist unser Sinn;
Es braust unser Panzer
Im Sturmwind dahin.



Mozilla really is a great little search engine!

If you notice in the movie, they sing the same verse over and over again. However, it is one of the few bright spots in an otherwise inaccurate movie.

I found a link thorugh a Google search once that showed where you could order that on a CD. Just put in Panzerlied in the search.

Was that an actual WWII era Panzer song, or one written for the film?

Thanks for the info guys! My problem wasn't I was searching "Panzarleid".

I did find this: www.rctankcombat.com/audio/panzerlied.html

"An otherwise inaccurate movie" Now how in the world could you say that?

Even when I was a kid and saw this movie, I couldn't figure out why the Germans were trying to get to a gasoline tank farm when their Tiger's and Panzar's ran on diesel.

Here's a cut and paste from a movie review:

"Benjamin Frankel's score has a clever theme for the Germans (a sort of "Panzer über alles"), but his main theme is heard during the rout of the Americans, and over the end credits (over an aerial shot of the blasted American tanks), a great heroic theme very remotely related to Shostakovich's Seventh Symphony in honor of Stalingrad or Copland's Fanfare For The Common Man."

It is a popular misconception that the Panzers were diesel. In fact, most of them ran a Maybach gasoline V12. Ops

Actual song. Written in 1933 IIRC.

That scene has to be one of the doofiest, GHEYest scenes I've ever seen in an otherwise entertaining (though grossly inaccurate) movie.

What a great website! I spent hours listening to the military marches under the WWII section.

Here's another link: http://www.pzg.biz/free_gift.htm

It has the story behind the song, and also provides a translation into english.

If I was a TC in a Abrams, I would play that through a loud speaker in Iraq....then of course because it would be Politically Incorrect, I would then be in a Court-Martial...

I do like the scene, it does, in a Hollywood way, show the espirit de corp of the Panzer Truppen....but as a whole, the movie is a turd...


In blizzard or storm,
Or in sun warm and bright,
The day hot as hell
Or bone-chilling be the night,
Our faces may with dust be laid,
But spirits never fade,
No, never fade;
Relentless, our tank
Thunders out on a raid.

With engines a-howling,
Fast as is the wind,
We head for the foe,
Safe, as we're in armor skinned.
Our comrades still behind us roam;
We fight the foe alone,
Yes, fight alone.
We stab through the line
To break the foes backbone.

Whenever the foe
May appear in our sight,
We'll ram throttle full,
Then we'll humble all his might!
Of what use is our life if we
Our country serve freely?
Yes, serve freely!
To die for our country,
Our honour shall be.

With tank traps and mines,
Our foe tries to impede.
We laugh at his ruses;
We know he'll not suceed.
And when, in threat, his cannons stand,
Half hidden in the sand,
Yes, in the sand,
We can find our way
Over much safer land.

And should at long last,
Fickle Lady Luck leave,
And we remain here,
Leaving family to grieve,
A bullet with our name on it,
Find us and seal our fate,
Yes, seal our fate,
Our tank will our grave be
On that final date.

I believe it is still the official song of the Panzer Korps.

Which begs the question.. As a US tanker, I probably should know the official song of the US Armor Branch. I'm assuming that (the abomination of) Garryowen that the Americans came up with applies solely to the Cavalry.

NTM
