Do you know any songs about F1 drivers?
A bunch of songs about Schumacher were made in Germany during his golden years! Here’s one of them – partly using the melody of the Italian anthem:
Here’s another one by Modern Talking – Schumacher is not mentioned here and neither is F1 but the ‘direction’ of the song is clear:
Here’s one with Pet Shop Boys’ Go West melody – I think it was made after Schumacher’s first retirement in 2006:
Here’s one about Felipe Massa after Hockenheim 2010:
There’s an interesting story about a single named ‘Deutschland’ by German group ‘Die Prinzen’, which got released in 2001. Just like most of the group’s hits, it’s ironical and the text describes what Germany is like. One of the lines sounds as follows:
Nur eine Kleinigkeit ist hier verkehrt
Und zwar dass Schumacher keinen Mercedes fährt
Just one small thing here is wrong
Namely, Schumacher doesn’t drive a Mercedes
The song was written in 2001 (a picture of Hakkinen’s car appears in the video) so it’s a bit funny to listen to it since 2010…
