Zu Asche, Zu Staub (Babylon Berlin)
I started watching ‘Babylon Berlin’. This is the trailer but the song and dance sequence is from the second episode and I loved it so much I had to share. The drum solo and audience dance about half the way through is the best part.
Berlin in the 20s and early 30s was the wildest city in Europe. Everything was a go. For instance, I learned at a seminar one time that in the early 30s there were 400 gay clubs just in Berlin. You wanted to forget the war, the depression, the shit of life, there was a way to do it. This reminded me of Margaret Mitchell (Gone With The Wind) who caused a scandal by dancing the Apache, which she learned in Europe, at a social event in the States. I’ve only watched two episodes but I’m hooked on the show. Now streaming on Netflix.
