Bunch of Bastards – Sky over Rotterdam

Die niederländische Band gedenkt mit einem Song und einem Video der Kriegsopfer in ihrer Heimat. Vor 75 Jahren wurde Rotterdam von deutschen Fliegerbomben in Schutt und Asche gelegt . Alliierte Flieger waren es wiederum, die fünf Jahre später für die hungernde Bevölkerung rettende Lebensmittelpakete abwarfen.

1 Gedanke zu “Bunch of Bastards – Sky over Rotterdam

  1. here are the lyrics, based om my dad’s boyhood wartime memories:

    The sky over Rotterdam is so peaceful now
    But my old man, he still remembers how
    That war made that sky such a restless place
    And airplanes were never hard to trace
    First them planes brought war, then they raised hopes high
    And in the end, they dropped food from the sky
    The sky, the sky, the sky, over Rotterdam

    One morning in spring, German planes were all around
    That brought their bombs, burnt our town to the ground
    People ran for their lives, many trapped by the fire
    And for five years to come, life would be harsh and dire

    The sky over Rotterdam ..

    In years to come, allied planes would rule the air
    And foreign towns, were handed the same nightmare
    As people starved from hunger, in the Rotterdam streets
    They often said a prayer, to support them allied fleets

    The sky over Rotterdam ..

    Then one fine day, planes flew in really low
    No bullets, no bombs, but food they let go
    Never before, did the sun shine so bright
    After five long years, people danced into the night

    The sky over Rotterdam ..
