my only nitpick is that he says "nicht" instead of "Nichts" (`not` instead of `nothing`) but its still vaginal (yes i speak german)

K, so the correct translation of this song is from "Du hast mich gefragt und ich hab nichts gesagt" which means "you have asked me and I have said nothing" (ie a marriage proposal)

Ah, had to correct myself.

The entire line of the song is " Du hast mich gefragt, and ich hab nitch gesagt "

which in the improper translation SOMEHOW ended up being You hate me to say and I did not obey.

Properly done it should be something like, You have asked me and I didnt say.

Which corrects my statement that the verb say is not anywhere in there..

if you learned a little more, you`d realize that that was EXACTLY what i meant without actually stating it.

Second, Rammstein didnt CHOOSE to translate it that way. The record company FORCED them to do 3 improperly translated english songs for the album.

Engel wasn`t too miserably translated. Stripped was a joke song, and Du hast was done by a third grader.

They then fired the company after the release.

You should also expand into the whole phrase, du hast mich gefragt.

Where ge- mixed with any verb and the usage of "hast" turns it automatically past tense showing the play on words..

Now in the english version they somehow get the phrase, you hate me to say, where the verb for "say" is not mentioned anywhere in the song.

Part-English version of Du Hast.


And this acapella was good, apart from the guy doing the synthesiser part at the end. But yeah, I really liked it.

If you learnt a little more, you`d know that "hast", you have, and "hasst", you hate, are homophones.

The whole point is that it`s a play on words in German, and translating it back to English doesn`t preserve the pun. So in the part-English recording, Rammstein chose to translate it as "hate" rather than "have".

A good effort but the audio quality is pretty abysmal. Try it in a studio.

Maybe if they weren`t doing their little dances they would be focusing on projecting their voices with more power.

There is a shadow that falls across the faces of the guys on each end of the back row and I thought for a second they were wearing the masks.

Those people should be happy. I`m not sure why, and not because of this video, somehow I think they are happy people.

Honestly, and I do mean honestly...they really weren`t very good. The concept is fun and cool, but it sounded like a bad acid trip to me.

Certain sound effects don`t belong in A Capella, most of which are featured here. Otherwise it was alright.
