Ziggy Marley - Love Is My Religion

Ziggy Marley's new single "Love Is My Religion" from the same-titled album is a well-received airplay hit. But to German listeners it isn't exactly new...

In Germany, about 25 years ago, a small one-hit wonder band called STS released a song which is now a party classic in southern Germany: "Fuerstenfeld".

I you listen closely, you can find many similarities between these two songs, in fact sometimes they sound identical! Is it because both parties share the same source? Or because Ziggy Marley by luck wrote the same song again?

Even the lyrics' notion is partly similar: Ziggy Marley: "... I don't want to fight, hey let's go fly a kite ..."

STS - Fuerstenfeld "... I brauch kan Guertel i brauch kan Ring (I don't need no...) I will z'ruck hintern Semmering I brauch nur des bissl Goeid Fuer die Fahrt nach Fuerstenfeld "

1 Ziggy Marley - Love Is My Religion Lyrics "Love is my religion, Love is my religion, Love is my religion I'll take you to the temple tonight

All my days I've been searching, to find out what this life is worth through the books and bibles of time I've made up my mind I don't condemn, I don't convert, this is a calling have you heard bring all the lovers to the fold, cause no one is gonna lose their soul

Love is my religion, Love is my religion, Love is my religion hey you can take it or leave it, and you don't have to believe it

I don't want to fight, hey let's go fly a kite there's nothing that we can't cure, and I'll keep you in my arms for sure so don't let nobody stop us, free spirits have to soar with you I share the gift, the gift that we now know oh oh oh

( Chorus )

Well I'm done searching now, I found out what this life is worth not in the books that I find, but by searching my mind I don't condemn, I don't convert this is the calling have you heard, bring all the lovers to the fold no one is gonna lose their soul

( Chorus )"

2 STS - Fuerstenfeld Lyrics "Langsam find't der Tag sei End und die Nacht beginnt In der Kaertnerstrass'n do singt aner "Blowing in the wind" Hat a greanes Raeckerl an, steht da ganz verlorn Und der Steffl der schaut owi auf den oarmen Steirerbuam

Der hat woll'n sei Glueck probiern in der grossen fremden Stadt Hat glaubt sei Musik bringt eam aufs Rennbahnexpress-Titelblatt Aus der Traum zerplatzt wia Seifenblosn nix is blieb'n Ois wia a paar Schilling in seim Gitarrenkoffer drin

Wochenlang steh i scho do Wochenlang plog i mi o I spuil mia die Finger wund Und sing sogor "Do kummt die Sunn"

Doch es is zum narrisch wern Kaner will mi singen hearn Langsam kriag i wirklich gnua I frog mi wos i do dua

Da geht den ganzen Tag der Wind Nix ois Baustelln das ka Mensch wos find Die Burenhaeut'ln san ein Graus Und im Kaffeehaus brennst di aus

I will wieder ham, fuehl mi do so allan I brauch ka grosse Welt, i will ham nach Fuerstenfeld

In der Zeitung da ham'S gschriem Da gibts a Szene do muasst hin Was die wolln des soin die schreim Mia ka de Szene g'stoin bleim

Da geh i gestern ins U4 Fangt a Diandl a zum redn mit mir Schwoarze Lipp'n gruene Hoar Do kannst ja Angst kriang wirklich woahr

I will wieder ham, fuehl mi do so allan I brauch ka grosse Welt, i will ham nach Fuerstenfeld

Niemals spiel i mehr in Wien Wien hat mi gor ned verdient I spiel hoechstens no in Graz Sinabelkirchen und Stinatz

I brauch kan Guertel i brauch kan Ring I will z'ruck hintern Semmering I brauch nur des bissl Goeid Fuer die Fahrt nach Fuerstenfeld

I will wieder ham, fuehl mi do so allan I brauch ka grosse Welt, i will ham nach Fuerstenfeld I will wieder ham, fuehl mi do so allan I brauch ka grosse Welt, i will ham nach Fuerstenfeld"
