I imagine not, but Google won't help, so I would like to ask.

Ten+ years ago, in a hole-in-the-all heavy metal bar in Singapore (barely 2x3 metres), I had free beers all night translating lyrics (they loved the music, but had no clue about the words (!?)).

One song stick in mind, which progreesed (approximately):

Du hast mich ...
Du hasst mich ...
Du hast mich ... vergessen

As you can imagine, it was fun explaining that one - especially with much beer in the mix.

And I can no longer remenber which song it was, and "Google is not my friend".

Would it be on topic to ask here (as, for instance asking for a literary reference)?

BTW/sorry; it's late at night and ... gin ... so, please excuse/edit any (many?) speling errors (@Izzy , that's your job ;-)

    Independent from what we may decide, song identification appears to be on-topic on Music Fans.

  • Thanks. I did not even know about that site. Being a music fan, I will become a regular. Of course, I will find more German speakers here than there ... Are literary reference questions on topic ("please identify this book or poem, from a quote")?

    Volltreffer!! Thank you so much, for the answer, and for the new community that I just joined. I misremembered the lyrics a little - blame time and Tiger beer :-)

So far, there is only a tag for Grammatik-Identifikation, no other identification tags.

However, there are similar questions open, for example:

So I guess, in general identification questions are on-topic. Just make sure you provide as many details as possible.
