FCS Daily Music Video – ‘Try Again’ Knorkator

Knorkator is a German band from Berlin that combines heavy metal with comical elements. They proclaim themselves to be “Germany’s most band in the world” (GermanDeutschlands meiste Band der Welt), as the title “The best band in the world” was already taken by Die Ärzte. The name Knorkator is a personification of knorke, a dated adjective used in Berlin and the Ruhr basin meaning “great” or “fabulous” (similar to the English slang word “swell”). The band was founded in 1994

Being a hater of heavy metal I wasn’t looking forward to this. It was an unexpected surprise. Fascinating. Most interesting. Very different. Bit like rock opera. Reminded me of a German Queen. See what you think

Lyrics below

What would you do?
To get to me
What would you say?
To have your way
Would you give up?
Or try again
If I hesitate
To let you in
Now would you be yourself
Or play your role
Tell all the boys
Or keep it low
If I say no
Would you turn away?
Or play me off
Or would you stay, oh, oh

And if at first you don’t succeed
Then dust yourself off and try again
You can dust it off and try again, try again
Cause if at first you don’t succeed
You can dust it off and try again
Dust yourself off and try again, try again (and again)
I’m in to you
You into me
But I can’t let it go
So easily
Not till I see
Whether this could be
Could be eternity
Or just a week
You know our chemistry
Is off the chain
It’s perfect now
But will it change?
This ain’t a yes
This ain’t a no
Just do your thing
We’ll see how it goes

See you don’t wanna throw it all away
I might be shy on the first date
What about the next date?
Huh? Huh? Huh? Huh?
I said you don’t wanna throw it all away
I might be buggin? on the first date
What about the next date?
Huh? Huh? Huh? Huh?
If at first you don’t succeed
You can dust it off and try again
Dust yourself off and try again, try again
Cause if at first you don’t succeed
You can dust it off and try again
You can dust it off and try again, try again (and again)

See you don’t wanna throw it all away
I might be shy on the first date
What about the next date?
Huh? Huh? Huh? Huh?
I said you don’t wanna throw it all away
I might be buggin? on the first date
What about the next date?
Huh? Huh? Huh? Huh?
If at first you don’t succeed
You can dust it off and try again
Dust yourself off and try again, try again
Cause if at first you don’t succeed
You can dust it off and try again
You can dust it off and try again, try again (and again)
