I really enjoy Brings' cover of Zarah Leander's "Nur nicht aus Liebe Weinen".

Who else does this type of cover? I enjoy Brings' classic rock (I think?) style (some of their earlier stuff is pretty screechy for me, but it seems in later years they've mellowed a bit), and am curious to hear other bands of the same type. (I also like their "janz höösch" semi-acoustic concert, but can't seem to find much beyond youtube clips)

As long as it isn't English, then language doesn't matter too much-- I speak German and enjoy knowing what I'm singing along to, but french, greek, flemish, etc, I'll listen to most anything. I've searched for Edith Piaf, Jacques Brel covers, etc, but haven't had much luck-- everything I find is in the same

Nina Hagen's "Zarah" is kind of a cover version of one of her (Zarah Leander's) songs and a tribute, in a kind of rock style. You might also like Agnes Bernelle, a real survivor of the Weimar era (though as a child) who later became an actress and then made three albums of songs on the Weimar cabaret style (cynical, sexual and political) with people like Elvis Costello, Tom Waits, Marc Almond (you might like some of his solo stuff, now that I think of it) and Philip Chevron of the Radiators From Space / Radiators / Pogues. Two of her three albums made it to CD, but they may be tough to find now. I especially like "Father's Lying Dead On The Ironing Board."
