Just a funny fact about Adam Green’s single Emily from his Gemstones album (of which iTMS now contains three copies: the usual one and the ‘exclusive’ one by Sanctuary Records with a publication date of 2004 plus another normal one with different cover art published by Rough Trade in 2005 - bad work, iTMS editors).
That song sounded quite familiar to many people in Germany. But it was hard to figure out why. The reason is that the song in many parts of its melody and structure sounds very much like the song Beinhart by the German band Torfrock. It was the title song for the German cartoon Werner – Beinhart, which came from a rather popular German cartoon. Back in the days everybody considered it pretty cool, which may explain why the single is quite popular here.
