This is a strange little piece but I love it. It seems I am not alone in this because to our surprise and delight it won the Junge Ohren prize for music theatre. The irony is, I took it on reluctantly because I thought myself too tired to write another stage work immediately after The Stolen Smells. In a very short space of time it turned into a labour of love.
Du bist da. Jugendgebetbuch.
The song is a love ballad, in which Brem compares how he feels when his lover is with him with how he feels when she is not. The song might not be seen as especially memorable among similar entries, but the performance was somewhat unusual. As in , Brem was wearing a leisure suit and a tie, though this time they were somewhat tidier and his hair more kempt. He was accompanied by four female dancers, one of whom also served as a support singer during some parts of the song. Two of the dancers were wearing old-fashioned cocktail dresses , roughly matching Brem's outfit, the third had a costume resembling that of an oriental belly dancer , and the singer was wearing an American football helmet , a swimsuit with the number 7 and socks resembling those used by aerobics practitioners. While Brem was performing the song in a usual ballad fashion, the dancers wandered around the surrealistic set performing a very strange dance routine.
