about

Life's good for Danube's Banks: fame, success, l'amour. But this gig could prove to be their last. Stranded in a hellish neverland, they face the greatest danger for any musician: to die young on the height of their career. Will some tight gypsy swing save their souls from the Band Eater? And what sacrifices must they make to get to the top?

Track Name: Danubes Bank's feat. Fridtjof Eschen - Blue Drag
Now blue drag
It sure is draggin' me down
I'm almost scraping the ground
When I hear that blue drag.
Oh baby, that slow drag,
it's got that new lazy swing!
I crave that new crazy swing!
I must have my blue drag.
Oh, that rhythm, blue rhythm, has brought me
on to this mysterious grace.
Oh, that rhythm, blue rhythm, has got me
into these peculiar days.
I can't get enough of blue drag!
Oh it's got my soul on fire
I know that I never tire of that low down blue drag.

Let me tell you about blue drag.
It sure is draggin' me down
I'm almost scraping the ground
When I hear that blue drag.
Oh baby, that slow drag,
it's got that new lazy swing!
I crave that new crazy swing!
I must have my blue drag.
Oh, that rhythm, blue rhythm, has brought me
on to this mysterious grace.
Oh, that rhythm, blue rhythm, has got me
into these peculiar days.
I can't get enough of blue drag!
Oh it's got my soul on fire
I know that I never tire of that low down blue drag.
Track Name: Danubes Bank's feat. Jan-Philipp Kelber - Zombie Doomsday
The other day I was looking for help
'cause I couldn't handle situation myself.
I went to my uncle Wanja from Transilvania,
he is a great guy and knows stuff about things.
“Listen to me boy, 'cause I won't say this twice,
take this old saying as my advice: sometimes in life
there is nothing you can do, but in soviet russia
car drives you.“

C'est la vie, c'est la vie...
Give me happiness and misery!
C'est la vie, c'est la vie...
Come dance with me!
C'est la vie, c'est la vie...
Life can be over like raz, dwa, trij!
C'est la vie, c'est la vie...

You know these days where you run out of luck?
I was looking for my girl when my car got stuck.
I was almost run over by a mexican
and this girlfriend turned out to be a lesbian.
On my way home I was attacked by some freaks –
they were zombies! Zombies in the streets!
Now when you fight off the undead with a knife
you really start appreciating the little things in life.

C'est la vie, c'est la vie...
Give me happiness and misery!
C'est la vie, c'est la vie...
Come dance with me!
C'est la vie, c'est la vie...
Life can be over like raz, dwa, trij!
C'est la vie, c'est la vie...
Now play me off!

Alright, so I am walking down the street
and my heart goes buahaa! Wait–what?!
There's a freaking zombie in my face.
He asks for change, but no seriously:
He asks me for my brains!
He all shambling along like it's nobody's business.
Somebody please help me!
Sexyphone! Hit me with the broom stick!

C'est la vie, c'est la vie...
Give me happiness and misery!
C'est la vie, c'est la vie...
Come dance with me!
C'est la vie, c'est la vie...
Life can be over like raz, dwa, trij!
C'est la vie, c'est la vie...
Track Name: Tchavolo Swing
Hier hast du Blumen und auch Schokolade,
vielleicht willst Du dazu ja auch noch mich.
Und wenn ich Dich am Abend bei mir habe,
dann sagst Du einfach nur: „Ich liebe Dich.”

Und wenn ich doch ganz plötzlich mal verreise,
dann stell ich mich am Bahnhof traurig an.
Das ist mir viel zu dumm, da kehr ich lieber um,
weil ich Dich dann immer bei mir haben kann.
