I remember that line, Sean. That and similar lines was why I stuck that in the drafts section in the first place. That’s something that resonates well with me, too.

And that is one of these videos that I’ve been looking for a good opportunity to post for a while. Today, though, since we were going back to a heavy metal type theme, I thought I’d post another song by Rammstein:

Engel – Rammstein

(Video footage from the Muppet show, with Debbie Harry, James Coburn, & Dizzy Gilespie)

Here we have Rammsteins Engel, with footage that complements it very well; scenes from the muppet show. They go together well enough that I was thinking “Rammstein was on the Muppets?” till I noticed a clip from Animal singing “Wild Thing”.

The footage of James Coburn and Blondie (Debbie Harry) fits in well, too. And that flute music is haunting.

I much prefer this, in fact, to the official music video:

Engel – Rammstein

“Hi, I’m a hot nearly naked chick with a suggestively draped snake! I’m going to make you lick beer off my foot, while two children with black eyes sing in a cage.”

Say what? Give me the Muppets any day.

Lyrics, with a translation, are here, btw.
