The American Dream in Songs

Februar 24, 2011 at 4:39 pm Hinterlasse einen Kommentar

Der American Dream ist ein Thema, mit dem sich in der Musik häufig auseinandergesetzt wird. Als Beispiel habe ich zwei Songs herausgesucht, die den American Dream auf unterschiedliche Weise beleuchten.

Ich interpretiere die nachfolgenden Texte auf Deutsch, es ist einfacher nachzuvollziehen und dauert nicht so lange als wenn ich mir hier stundenlang meine Vokabeln zusammensuche. Auch werde ich hier nicht auf das Reimschema, Metrum oder rhetorische Stilmittel eingehen, die Texte werden lediglich in Bezug zum American Dream gesetzt.

2 America
2.1 Interpretation

1 Hotel California

On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair
Warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air
Up ahead in the distance, I saw shimmering light
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim
I had to stop for the night
There she stood in the doorway;
I heard the mission bell
And I was thinking to myself,
‚This could be Heaven or this could be Hell‘
Then she lit up a candle and she showed me the way
There were voices down the corridor,
I thought I heard them say…

Welcome to the Hotel California
Such a lovely place (Such a lovely place)
Such a lovely face
Plenty of room at the Hotel California
Any time of year (Any time of year)
You can find it here

Her mind is Tiffany-twisted, she got the Mercedes Benz
She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys she calls friends
How they dance in the courtyard, sweet summer sweat.
Some dance to remember, some dance to forget

So I called up the Captain,
‚Please bring me my wine‘
He said, ‚We haven’t had that spirit here since nineteen sixty nine‘
And still those voices are calling from far away,
Wake you up in the middle of the night
Just to hear them say…

Welcome to the Hotel California
Such a lovely place (Such a lovely place)
Such a lovely face
They livin‘ it up at the Hotel California
What a nice surprise (what a nice surprise)
Bring your alibis

Mirrors on the ceiling,
The pink champagne on ice
And she said ‚We are all just prisoners here, of our own device‘
And in the master’s chambers,
They gathered for the feast
They stab it with their steely knives,
But they just can’t kill the beast

Last thing I remember, I was
Running for the door
I had to find the passage back
To the place I was before
‚Relax,‘ said the night man,
‚We are programmed to receive.
You can check-out any time you like,
But you can never leave!‘

The malaise was not confined to those picking individual stock winners. Through December 1, aggregate hedge fund returns trailed the market to the point of farce. According to data compiled by Bloomberg, hedge funds were up an average of 2% on the year, just barely offering the coupon rate of a risk-free 10-year Treasury note. Over 1,000 funds are on track to close down in 2014, the worst year for liquidations since 2009.

1.1 Interpretation

Da einige Textstellen mehrdeutig sind und bis heute nicht in ihrer wahren Bedeutung bestätigt wurden, lässt sich der Song nicht vollkommen interpretieren. Trotzdem wird die Kritik am American Dream deutlich.

To put this all in a bit more perspective, the current World Cup is averaging more goals than any of the top leagues around the world averaged in 2013/14. TheNetherlands' Eredivisie was the highest scoring of the top European leagues at 3.20 and the Bundesliga was just a shade behind at 3.16. No other top European league averaged more than 2.80 last season. In theAmericas, Major League Soccer is the current pace setter at 2.89 goals per game.

If you constantly arrive late to work, or return late from breaks, it displays an attitude of complacency and carelessness. So be prompt or even a bit early to show that you are time conscious and that you do care about your job and other people’s time, as well.

"Well, I believe I am a feminist because I believe that women deserve the same rights as men in every aspect of our economy and our society, here at home and around the world," Clinton said to applause.

8月,为了捍卫中国在全球经济中的制造业中心的地位,央行引导人民币作出数十年来最大幅的贬值。稍后,在国际货币基金组织(International Monetary Fund)把人民币纳入全球储备货币之后,人民币进一步贬值。这一现象可能反映了资本外流。

Whether of left or right, they present themselves as representatives of the common people against elites and unworthy outsiders; make a visceral connection with followers as charismatic leaders; manipulate that connection for their own advancement, frequently by lying egregiously; and threaten established rules of conduct and constraining institutions as enemies of the popular will that they embody.


As China's economic structure evolves, the rich list also is changing.
"Twenty Two" featuring the tales of 22 comfort women became the first Chinese documentary to surpass 100 million yuan at the box office.

Der Song der Eagles beschreibt also die „dunkle“, negative Seite der Gesellschaft. Der American Dream wird nicht als Sprungbrett zum Erfolg dargestellt, sondern als eine Art Droge die Abhängig macht und einen nicht mehr loslässt. In Strophe 3 sieht man, dass zumindest einige der Gäste im Hotel wohlhabend sind. Jedoch wird ihr eichtum in Verbindung mit Oberflächlichkeit und Materialismus gebracht, also die Art von Reichtum, die einen nicht glücklich macht.

Interessant ist auch zu erwähnen, dass der Song 1976 erschien, also in dem Jahr als die USA ihr 200 jähriges Bestehen feierten. man kann den Song also auch als eine Art „ungeschminkte Wahrheit“ oder als das Zeichen zum Ende des American Dream sehen.

2 America

Far, we’ve been traveling far
Without a home
Not without a stars
Free, only want to be free
We huddle close, hang on to a dream
On the boats and on the plans
They’re coming to America
Never looking back again
They’re coming to America

Home, don’t it seem so far away
We’re traveling light today
In the eyes of the storm
In the eyes of the storm
Home, it’s a new and shinning place
Make our bed and we’ll say our grace
Freedom’s light burning warm
Freedom’s light burning warm

Everywhere around the world
They’re coming to America
Everytime that flags unfurled
They’re coming to America
Got a dream to take them there
They’re coming to America
Got a dream they come to share
They’re coming to America
They’re coming to America…
Today, today, today…

My country ‚tis of thee we, today
Sweet land of liberty, today
Of thee I sing, today
Of thee I sing, today..

Titel: America

Künstler: Neil Diamond

Release: 25. April 198, auf dem Album „The Jazz Singer“

What’s more, in recognition of their working on the bizarre properties of matter in extreme states and taking their research all the way down to an atomic scale, the Nobel Prize for physics was awarded to three British-born scientists who currently work in the US.

2.1 Interpretation

Der Song America von Neil Diamond ist, auch wenn man die ständige Wiederholung des Satzes „They’re coming to America“ berücksichtigt, sehr kurz. Trotzdem vermittelt er eine klare Botschaft.

Chinese Cultural Relics is a new journal that translates Chinese-language articles, originally published in the journal Wenwu, into English. The discovery of the 1,700-year-old cemetery was included in its inaugural issue.
"Everywhere I go business owners are seeing an increase in demand," said Gus Faucher, senior economist at PNC Financial Services. "Businesses will have to raise wages to attract or maintain workers."
“Nick is an exceptional product thinker,” Adam Cahan, Yahoo’s senior vice-president of mobile and emerging products, said. “He does represent a generational shift in the kinds of things he is thinking about and what it means to be truly mobile. That generation is not just mobile-first, they are mobile only. That’s a different point of view.”

Likewise, if the 11 countries led by Japan left in the TPP manage to salvage a deal following the US exit that could provide some balance in the region.

The raised decoration shows a cartouche — an oval frame around Egyptian hieroglyphics indicating a royal name. Above the frame archaeologists could make out the symbol of an eye and that of a cobra.

Bei diesem Song muss man nicht lange über eine mögliche Bedeutung rätseln. Er ist ein Beispiel für die positive Beschreibung des American Dream. Der Song bezieht sich auf die gewaltigen Immigrationswellen seit ungefähr Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts. Immigranten aus aller Welt suchten Zuflucht oder ein besseres Leben in den Vereinigten Staaten. Zu genau dieser Zeit wurde auch der American Dream wirklich populär. Amerika als das gelobte Land, das Land der unbegrenzten Möglichkeiten.

Neil Diamonds America gleicht einem Werbeslogan für die USA. Das Land wird angepriesen, der American Dream ist heute wie in der Vergangenheit möglich.
