Talk:Pussy (Rammstein song)

Nonsensical line[edit]

"Reise, Reise, Fahrvergnügen" In the context of the song this line is not nonsensical. Its a typical rammstein line using words with more then one meaning. In german "vergnügen" also means to have intercourse. With knowing the complete song its highly likely that this is a line of thoughts and says something like: "travel(ing), travel(ing), Drive [to] intercourse"

More informations needed[edit]

about the song: lyrics, meanings etc.

about the video: location, full cast etc.

Since the graphic content, and the debate which can be followed on some forums, it would be nice if somebody would find the source to tell if the sex scenes are stunts or not. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 93.48.45.55 (talk) 09:27, 15 October 2009 (UTC)

"The song is a satirical take on sex tourism[2]" --> I followed the citation, and the page it points to does not even seem to mention sex tourism. This claim is highly dubious.

Fascinating[edit]

Many fans have been disappointed with the song's simplicity and crudeness. Oliver Riedel (bassist) gives his view: "Normally you'd have to come out with a hard song for the first track. That would be expected, and I think it's good that it doesn't fit with expectation. And it's actually a song that's somewhat bad musically." (Making of 'Pussy') http://au.music.ign.com/dor/objects/816299/rammstein/videos/rammstein_video_101909.html;jsessionid=c5pqn49eo53tp

There appears to be growing consensus,within the Rammstein Community,that the song is actually quite subtle,working on a number of levels.If we begin from the premise that the song deals with German doninance and exploitation of central and eastern Europe:

'too big,too small...' - when combined with the facistic imagery of the video,there is a lingering suggestion of 'lebensraum'.

'size does matter after all' - that German economic and political strength allows it to effectively dominate central/east Europe.

'Mercedes Benz/autobahn' - that Germans who travel to the east (conspicuously diplaying their wealth) do so for personal gain,whether that is individuals going to buy sex,or Germany as an entity advancing its interests at the expense of other nations.

'Ausland' - that Germans travel to the East to do things that they would not consider doing at home.This is a reminder (suggestive) that Nazi atrocities in the East were carried out (at least in part) by individuals who were regarded as being ordinary, respectable citizens back at home in Germany.

'One size fits all...' - that 'one size' being, of course, the German way of doing things.Given the groups stated political leanings, it is probable that this is a more specific reference to German capitalism, and the decline of socialism in the East. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Isocracy Now!

The theme of exploitation continues with the video - the band present a message of exploitation through pornography,regarded by many as exploitational in itself.There is also the contrast (through the use of facistic imagery) between sexual and economic exploitation - to put it crudely,that individual Germans will 'screw' your women,whilst Germany will 'screw' your country and culture - hence the climax (no pun intended) to the current live show.

The song and video suggest that the band regard those who rely on sex tourism and pornography for sexual fulfilment as being inadequate - 'I can't get laid in Germany' - and insensitive - 'so what's the problem?...'This,of course,also extends to a condemnation of German attitudes/dominance fo central/east Europe - the expoiter never sees a problem,whilst the exploited see many.

In essence the song suggests that German attitudes towards eastern Europe today are little different to those under the Nazi regime - that the region is there to be exploited by Germany for its own advantage,with little regard for the consequences on the region. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Isocracy Now!

Body doubles[edit]

The article referenced and several others clearly state that only some of the band members used body doubles not all. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.180.81.54 (talk) 08:52, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
