  • It was written for the 1966 musical Cabaret by composer John Kander with lyrics by Fred Ebb. As Ebb was Jewish, one might suppose it was intended to be anti-Nazi, but it soon became popular with anti-Semitic and neo-Nazi types; it was even recorded by Ian Stuart.
  • In the original musical, initially this is performed a cappela by a male voice choir.
    In the 1972 film version it is performed by a member of the Hitler Youth in an outdoor scene in which first other Nazis in uniform join in, and then ordinary people.
  • The song was also recorded, notably, by The Sensational Alex Harvey Band. The anarchic Harvey used it as for title of his fifth album. >>
