Song of the Week (12) – Severija

Not a lot of time to pick a song of the week this weekend so I’m going to go for ‘Zu Asche, Zu Staub’, the striking theme tune from ‘Babylon Berlin’. There’s not anything similar on the blog and I think it’s the first German language song I’ve featured as well.

The song is performed by actress Severija Janusauskaite so presumably she’s miming in the actual episode to her own vocals.

This is the long version of the song with the extended drum solos in the middle which make more sense as a sound-track rather than just as a song.

And with that stunning, in depth analysis, here’s the song!
