Seemann (Deine Heimat Ist Das Meer)

by

Lolita



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

Written by Werner Scharfenberger and Fini Busch, this hit song was first recorded in German by Lolita. Although a fairly run of the mill ballad it is strong melodically, and was unsurprisingly re-recorded for the American market later the same year, also in German, but with added spoken vocals by an unidentified female vocalist, and had the biggest impact of a German language song on the Billboard chart up until that time. A certain Elvis Presley was serving with the US Army in Germany at the time the song was written, so this may have had something to do with its success.
It was shortly re-recorded entirely in English as "Sailor". (thanks, Alexander Baron - London, England)
