Thank you, DCJ, I didn't know that.

Meanwhile another snippet has appeared on facebook, it certainly sounds a lot like the BFO, however it is not really sure, what the songs in it are... based on the end titles, they could/should be Alphaville and Chance Meeting, but it's really difficult to recognize them....

I think I'm hearing some resemblances with Nile Rodgers' guitar, but I'm far from being sure, as is Yuko...

Here's the link to the Leo Zero Remix of Alphaville, that brings out Rodgers' guitar perfectly (one of my favourite remixes, btw, I really love it):

I'm looking forward to hear your opinions about it :-)

Perpetual Procrastinators,

Windswept really hopes this one lives up to expectations.

Visually it looks quite stunning and the atmospherics appear to be intoxicating. W2 hopes like hell that it stands up, Sky Atlantic have a pretty good track record so fingers crossed. Have any of our German Brethren seen the show or heard reviews?

Salutations,

Windswept

Hipsters,

W2 has just viewed the first two episodes.

'Dance Away' a la BFO was in episode2 and fitted perfectly.

So far, it is a great piece. The night club scenes are amazing.

Salutations,

Windswept

Just listened to "Bitter Sweet" and "Bitters End" on Facebook. BS with Ferry vocals in English and German (as I presumed) and really fantastic 8-) . I ordered the 2CD soundtrack which will be available in Germany November 24th.

Cher pianoman,

Clearly you are a gentleman of consummate taste.

W2 can't wait to get his hands on these BFO tracks. They were such an amazing band and Babylon Berlin is just such a great home for their music.

Windswept is completely knocked out by the first two episodes and will watch the remainder in his trench coat and fedora with Tallisker in hand.

It's a shame Sky Atlantic

@ M. Windswept: Especially the BFO version of 'Bitter Sweet' has a slight touch of The Threepenny Opera / Dreigroschenoper by Bert Brecht / Kurt Weill (including The Doors' / David Bowie's Alabama Song). This sound and the German verse fit perfectly with the Berlin scenery. Can't wait for the soundtrack discs ... And I hope that the BFO still consists of members of the Pasadena Roof Orchestra.

Philisophical Philanderers,

Pianoman’s enthusiasm for the full soundtrack is well founded - the nightclub dance scene in episode 2 is just unbelievable - the earth moves. It is better than Sunderland’s Annabels in 1972 !

The whole thing is great: fabulous story, great acting, sumptuously shot. Viva Babylon Berlin.

Windswept can’t wait for Sunday and episodes 3 & 4 - shame Sky Atlantic didn’t release the whole thing at once.

Salutations,

W2
