  • The different photos on the English and German-language versions of Ute Lemper's BERLIN CABARET SONGS are indicative of how differently these 18 songs come across in the two languages; the photo on the English album is sexy and vampy, while the photo on the German album is sexy and chilly. Get past Lemper's sex kitten purr, however, and a different picture emerges.
  • These songs were performed in the German cabarets of the '20s and early '30s, and, hearing them in English, the political subtext of the lyrics becomes absolutely clear. Specifically, the defiantly gay themes of "The Lavender Song" and "When the Special Girlfriend" (originally a duet by Marlene Dietrich and Margo Lion--Lemper sings both parts), and the female empowerment of "I Am a Vamp!" and "Chuck Out the Men" suggest why Hitler banned cabaret along with other art forms not in keeping with his totalitarianism.
