Nowhere German

The Taika Waititi directed movie, Jo Jo Rabbit, was released recently with its somewhat controversial subject matter.

The film mostly succeeds in balancing the comedy and horror of the subject matter and its twisting of reality.

One particular reality twist is the song, ‘Komm, gib mir deine Hand,’ better known as, ‘I Want to Hold Your Hand,’ by The Beatles sung in German.

The Beatles famously had a residency in Hamburg Germany and so its not surprising they picked up a little bit of German on the way.

The track was originally released as a single in 1964 and can be found on various compilations including Past Masters.
