From Elvis Costello to Van Morrison, these funky tunes feature little Luxembourg!
Luxembourg – Elvis Costello and attractions
rolling stone listed Costello among the 100 greatest artists of all time. So naturally he wrote about one of the greatest countries of all time.
Well, let’s be honest, in ‘Luxembourg’ he sings: “Don’t start your morning moaning or you might wake up in Luxembourg”, but maybe he’s kidding and he would like to wake up in Luxembourg? It is surely not so bad?
Get Well Soon – Godley & Creme
This English rock duo, hailing from 1970s rock band 10cc, pay homage to Radio Luxembourg (a predecessor of our very own RTL Today radio!) in this classic track:
I spend the night with Radio Luxembourg
Pop music makes me sleep
I grant the dial to Radio Luxembourg
It’s better than counting sheep
Dad’s car – The cardigans
This Swedish rock band rock’n’roll, uh, road trip in their dad’s car. Along the way, they cross the Grand Duchy:
From Luxemburg to Rome
From Berlin to the moon
From Paris to Lausanne
From Athens to the sun
Our car has become a spaceship
You’re Not Fun Anymore – The Bluetones
We are back in Britain with Britpop purveyors The Bluetones, who have written an entire album called Luxembourg. It’s love! Or maybe something spicier, because the song “You’re No Fun Anymore” is about an S&M relationship that has lost its luster. ‘Luxembourg’ is the escape word!
I can’t say the word, whoa lux Luxembourg
On Hyndford Street–Van Morrison
Here’s another song featuring radio station Radio Luxembourg, rather than the country itself. Well, the song is a bit over the top for this number. It’s somewhere between a hymn to “sunny summer afternoons” and a spoken word poem:
Take me back, take me away, away, away
On Hyndford Street
Where you could feel the silence at half past eleven
The long summer nights
As the radio was playing Radio Luxembourg
Lady of Luxembourg – Ronnie Ronalde
This one is a bit of a niche: a music-hall singer imitating birdsong and yodelling with slicked back hair and a carefree tone. He is delighted by the lady from Luxembourg:
See her walk you see a dream
People are talking everywhere she’s been
Hear her talk, you know what I’m mean
The lady from Luxembourg
Luxembourg_Lxb – Mike Ross
And now for something completely different… Togolese/Luxembourgish artist Mike Ross shares his vision of “belle danse” in the Grand Duchy:
Luxembourg is not just about money
Luxembourg is not just about banks
In Luxembourg we also know how to party (In Luxembourg we also know how to party)
Luxemburg – Jesse Harris
American singer-songwriter Harris focuses his summer melody on the Grand Duchy:
In Luxembourg on the grass
Did you know all that would pass?
In the days before rock’n’roll – Van Morrison
Versatile musical legend Van Morrison is back for a second stint. He pays tribute here to his musical heroes: Little Richard, Ray Charles, and to the source of a lot of good music: Radio Luxembourg.
We’ve traveled the wave bands
We would have Luxembourg,
Luxemburg and Athens
Ons Heemecht (Our Homeland)
We end with a true Luxembourg classic, the national anthem. It really is a banger, isn’t it?
In English, the lyrics include:
Keep this, our Luxembourg land,
Foreign yoke and woe!
