Top 2 Music Videos in Germany

So I'm at the gym this morning and had to laugh at the idiosyncrasies of living in Germany. The TV monitor in front of my elliptical was showing the top music videos in Germany, courtesy MTV Germany. Looking at the top two, could you get more opposite??

#2 is Stromae, a French speaking/singing guy from Belguim with a dance mix. Sort of what I would expect in the German market. The Disco (club) scene in Germany is massive. This song is "Alors an Danse".

#1 is Jack Johnson. Yeah, the polar opposite. This is his song, "You and Your Heart". We go from club music to chill-at-the-beach music.

I was all excited about the Jack Johnson tune, although the "Alors an Danse" song is pretty catchy, no?

i love jack, but now the belgian song will be in my head for the rest of the night. easy to see why it's #2! used to love to hit the gym in hamburg for this very reason. mtv germany was always so amusing. it made having to run (because there was no good yoga at the time) entertaining.

Ugh! Now I am addicted to Jack's song! I've been listening to it non stop all night!

oh no - my comment doesn't look like it showed up a few days ago. I had written that now I know what that thumping music has been in our walls all the time.... that first song!

What a beautiful blog you have!! Great pictures on the side.

I love learning about places I'll probably never get the chance on visiting, and I will say it is funny when the top 2 songs are completely opposite of one another, both very catch but of course Jack Johnson as the beach feel I always enjoy!
