Lili Marlene

Post by Steven » Sat Oct 13, 2012 7:15 am

Hi,

Lili Marlene is mentioned in Leonard Cohen's "Famous Blue Raincoat."

Here are two covers of the song "Lili Marlene" sung by Marlene Dietrich. The first is in
German. The second in English. One can easily understand why this song resonated
with soldiers in World War II.
