Top 10 Favorite Tokio Hotel Songs

Tokio Hotel - Bill or Joan Jett!

 

The time has come again. Tokio Hotel is almost 2 years more mature than last we checked in with them. So Schrei dropped in 2005. It was #1 in Germany and Austria. Due to its rapid success, it was re-released in 2006. Sadly many of the songs had to be re-recorded for this re-release. Once Bill’s balls dropped, the record execs realized that his newly found vocals had to catch up to his touring voice. 2007 brought us Zimmer 483. This record has been said (via wikipedia) to have “more deep and more serious lyrics [compared to their debut, Schrei, of course]”. I can believe it. Zimmer 483 has already sold almost 400,000 units in 2 months. But the exciting news is that later this year there will be a breakthrough in the language barrier for many of us. 2007 will also give us the soon-to-be-legendary Scream. This will be a compilation of songs from Zimmer 483 and Schrei but sung exclusively in English. It will be released in the UK first and, if it fares well, we Americans might have a shot at some Tokio Hotel domestically. I think this is what the recording industry has been waiting for all these years.

You may notice one song song is repeated more than once. The reason is that this one song from their debut album was so moving and powerful that the list would only be accurate in this order.

Tokio Hotel’s Schrei


When we were in Spain on our honeymoon last fall there was this band Tokio Hotel. They were all over German MTV. Rightfully so. If this band hasn’t already broke in the States, it’s only a matter of time. Their record Schrei is quite possibly the best record of 2005. Sonic mastery and genius lyrics. You will soon be swooning all over Bill, yeah Bill, their singer.Here’s the single that was raging all over western europe:
