    Dedicating it to a communist could mean anything. It could meanshe was spitting in the face of the said communist

    She dedicated the live performances of this song to a communist and said she intended this song in the same spirit as Jimi Hendrix meant his performance of The Star-Spangled Banner. Yeah, pretty sure she wasn't a Nazi.

    beketaten do you have any source for this, or is it just a random speculation?

    The reason she sang the first verse was that she lived the consequences of it in her childhood and it scarred her forever. Her father died in the war and some of her earliest memories were of hiding in a bathtub during air-raids, and seeing piles of bodies at the end of the street where she grew up. It's a wry, bitter and heartbreaking expression of the point of view of all of those who suffered the Nazi party's destructive folly. And for that reason, that first verse should never be forgotten.

    Actually, I rather like this, just silly that the über alles shit is in there. It's silly to forbid a verse of an anthem though. Silly germans. They should use a famous Lena song... no wait, I'll write one....

    Well, it sounds pretty. I'm pretty sure you could start the song directly at 3:30, perform just the 3rd stanza, and there'd be absolutely no problem whatsoever.

    Well, the first stanza. The third is still Germany's national anthem... but eh, even Nietzsche thought this song sucked way back in the 1800s.

    Icy in her delivery, all-encompassing in her soundscape, and unrelenting in her majesty. Nico lives forever.
