Song of the Day: Danke Schoen
Today’s song is Danke Schoen by Wayne Newton.
Yeah, I was introduced to this through Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. Still a great song.
The tone of this track is just so pleasant. The way it builds as it goes on makes me happy.
Though we go on our separate ways, still the memory stays,
for always, my heart says danke schoen.
Particularly enjoy the subtle piano at the beginning. Then the brass and strings jump in.
By the end, the song is a beautiful melody with so many great hooks.
It’s the way the lyrics stay the central focus, but the backing just keeps elevating.
Love how music can build that way. Makes it more of an experience.
