Wovon Sollen Wir Träumen – Frida Gold

Wovon Sollen Wir Träumen – Frida Gold

Today, we travel to Germany for “Finnish Friday” and explore the music of Frida Gold. I’m not fluent in German, but I did muddle my way through three years of it in High School. Surprisingly, I do have a somewhat of a decent vocabulary. But when you never use it, it becomes challenging to understand conversation. Clicking on a German video every so often helps me practice and see how much I remember.

Frida Gold is the name of a quartet featuring the vocal talents of Alina Süggeler. This is my favorite song/video, but they have a second I enjoy as well called Zeig Mir Wie Du Tanzt (Show Me How You Dance).

Wovon Sollen Wir Träumen (What Are We To Dream) is visually stunning. The first time I watched this video I was hooked. Even if you speak absolutely no German, you will probably find your toe tapping to the tune.

The song is about the challenges of searching for true love. She sings about going to clubs and meeting new lovers, but not being satisfied. I may be embellishing too much, but I think you understand the point. I think what most people are really searching for is God, who IS love. Its much easier to love yourself and others, when you have experienced God’s love.

I’m not suggesting this is a Christian song or band. I was simply making a point based on my interpretation of the lyrics. But when you read this portion of the lyrics, think about what is the ultimate goal in life and where is our true home.

We can’t breathe anymore and we forget to eat.
We drink too much, it remains a game without goal.
When will this end? When will we get out of here?
What shall we dream of? Where is our home?
Where is our home?


Anyway, enough analysis of the lyrics. I hope you enjoy the song!
