10 German "Student Songs" Ranked

Most of these songs are sung in a Commercium & you've probably never heard of them, but a List is a List.
  1. 1.
    Gaudeamus igitur
    It's Latin & chances are you probably have heard it if you were in orchestra. But do you know the lyrics by heart? Ask any German Frat guy to sing it from memory and if he can't, he should buy you a beer. Tell him/her I said so.
  2. 2.
    Die Gedanken Sind Frei
    The ultimate free thinking, activist song.
  3. 3.
    Dort Saaleck, hier Rudelsburg
    The ultimate bragging song for my fraternity, the song mentions the topography that resembles our frat house. Mountains here and Valleys there!!
  4. 4.
    Krambambuli, das ist der Titel
    A winter song, best before a Krambambula, a mulled wine- like concoction with quality depending on how crazy the bar man is.
  5. 5.
    Ça Ça Geschmauset!
    Sung before every meal.
  6. 6.
    Student sein...
    To be a student and carefree.
  7. 7.
    Ergo Bibamus
    Another song in Latin. I know that I know nothing. Therefore let's drink!
  8. 8.
    Schwarzen Walfisch zu Askalon
    I liked the jingle of this because it reminded me of some pirate adventure. My Older Frat brother hated this song and I think I liked suggesting it to spite him more.
  9. 9.
    Glück auf, Glück auf
    An old mining song
  10. 10.
    O alte Burschenherrlichkeit
    A song to remind us about life as an alum and how we shouldn't forget to stay true to the bonds of friendship.
