Frankfurt am Main, December 1, 2015, 90 years Hildegard Knef

Hildegard Knef, who was born on 28 December 1925, lived for many careers: As a German postwar Star, Hollywood actress, singer and author. As a singer, she stormed the German charts with self-written songs.

The melodies of her songs were mostly composed by Charly Niessen (1923-1990). In 1965 Hildegard Knef wrote her first lyrics „Werden Wolken alt?“ ("Are Clouds getting old?") with the composition by Gert Wilden, who died at the age of 98 in September this year. Good songs in addition with a good performer also need a good music publisher. He was found in the person of Johann Michel and his publishing company MELODIE DER WELT. 1968 Hildegard Knef was honored with the "Golden Record" for three million-sellings of her LPs.

On 1 February 2002 Hilde Knef passed. In order to revere the 10th anniversary of the death, MELODIE DER WELT reissued her songs, published with the company. 16 chansons were selected, among others "Berlin, dein Gesicht hat Sommersprossen" ("Berlin, your face has freckles"), "Der alte Wolf" ("The Old Wolf"), "Es war beim Bal paré" ("Ball Paré") and of course "Eins und eins, das macht zwei" ("One and One, that makes Two").

The German Songbook "Eins und eins, das macht zwei" for voice and piano is available in any music store (Order-No.: 684/93/10, ISMN: 979-0-2049-0516-4). Please go to "Sheet music" for more information.

Frankfurt am Main, November 11, 2015, "Gell, du hast mich gelle gern" for 50 years

"Gell, du hast mich gelle gern, gelle ich dich auch" is an eternally young carnival hit in Germany, sung by Margit Sponheimer with the music by Toni Hämmerle, who worked successfully with MELODIE DER WELT for many years.

On 11th November at 11 o’clock and 11 minutes, the German carnival season starts again and although the legendary singer of the Carnival Association of 1838 in Mainz has left the field to the younger ones, you still can hear the song during the “foolish time” everywhere in Germany.

The blind and in 1968 deceased composer and lyricist Toni Hämmerle from Gießen was a happy person in spite of his fate. He composed the song for the young Margit and it was tailor-made for her, although he needed only one hour for it. The song was sold over a million times, the reward was, inter alia, a gold record for the singer. From the first moment it was a winner song. And for this reason it was clear that MELODIE DER WELT was interested in it. Margit Sponheimer has probably sung this song a thousand times, but never was tired of. "It's not just an entertaining hit, it also has soul," she explained in an interview.

"Gell, du hast mich gelle gern" appeared in various arrangements with MELODIE DER WELT. Please got to "Sheet music" for more information.

Frankfurt am Main, November 5, 2015, MELODIE DER WELT administrates Detlev Jöcker‘s “Menschenkinder-Verlag”

Whether “Im Kribbel Krabbel Mäusehaus” ("In the Tingling Scrambling Mouse House"), “Das Kille-Kitzel-Monster” ("The Tickle Monster") or “1, 2, 3 im Sauseschritt" (“1, 2, 3 with speedy steps") - there is hardly a nursery in Germany without a CD with songs by Detlev Jöcker. As a father of four children, Detlev Jöcker knows exactly what even the little ones like. The composer and producer from Muenster is one of the most successful children's singer-songwriters of Germany for years and has been honored with several gold and platinum awards for his albums. More than 13 million CDs and more than 4 million books have been sold. 

1987, Detlev Jöcker founded his "Menschenkinder-Verlag", where a large number of children phonograms, and interactive books belonging to, have been published over the years. Starting January 2016, MELODIE DER WELT will administer “Menschenkinder-Verlag" and looks forward to a successful collaboration.

Detlev Jöcker: “In 1951, MELODIE DER WELT and I were born. If that's not a good omen. I look forward to the cooperation with one of the first addresses regarding administration of music publishers in Germany.”

For the second time the co-publishers THE MUSICBROKERS and MELODIE DER WELT have invited to their songwriter camp in Hamburg. From July 15 to 17 selected authors (also from other publishing companies) met to write hits for various artists or specific genres.
The music agent THE MUSICBROKERS was in charge of the organization and supervision of the event during which many new songs were composed and written in the famous Hamburg Chameleon Studios.

Tom Neverman,  CEO of THE MUSICBROKERS says that “it’s all about the music, the songs. Our creative mission is to bring together the right songwriters with the respective artists. During the past three days our authors made a good job of it and we are very proud of them.”
Adds Melodie der Welt’s A&R John Ruhrmann: „Again we are very impressed about the results of our second camp with our Hamburg partners THE MUSICBROKERS! Generally great authors write great songs. As a publisher we make a point offering our authors frequently new constellations and settings for their work; that’s what THE MUSICBROKERS have done again with this songwriting camp.”
It will be continued.
