"Du Riechst So Gut" as written by Richard Z. Kruspe, Paul Landers, Till Lindemann, Doktor Christian Lorenz, Oliver Riedel and Christoph Doom Schneider....
Der Wahnsinn
Ist nur eine schmale Brücke
Die Ufer sind Vernunft und Trieb
Ich steig Dir nach
Das Sonnenlicht den Geist verwirrt
Ein blindes Kind das vorwärts kriecht
Weil es seine Mutter riecht

Die Spur ist frisch und auf die Brücke
Tropft dein Schweiss Dein warmes Blut
Ich seh Dich nicht
Ich riech Dich nur Ich spüre Dich
Ein Raubtier das vor Hunger schreit
Witter Ich Dich meilenweit

Do riechst so gut
Do riechst so gut
Ich geh Dir hinterher
Do riechst so gut
Ich finde Dich
So gut
Ich steig Dir nach
Do riechst so gut
Gleich hab Ich Dich

Ich warte bis es dunkel ist
Dann fass Ich an die nasse Haut
Verrate Mich nicht
Oh siehst do nicht die Brücke brennt
Hör auf zu schreien und wehr Dich nicht
Weil Sie sonst auseinander bricht

Do riechst so gut
Ich geh Dir hinterher
Do riechst so gut
Ich finde Dich
So gut
Ich steig Dir nach
Do riechst so gut
Gleich hab Ich Dich
Do riechst so gut
Do riechst so gut
Ich geh Dir hinterher
Do riechst so gut
Ich finde Dich
So gut
Ich fass Dich an
Do riechst so gut
Jetzt hab Ich Dich
Do riechst so gut
Do riechst so gut
Ich geh Dir hinterher

    General CommentObviously the song and its music video is about rape and stalking. Though to some degree you could see simularities to the book little red riding hood. Which is about the same subject.Rammstein just made their own little red riding hood story.

    Obviously the man represents the wolf one who "eats" red ridinghood (Its represents the beast/lust within). The Female by her color alone is red ridinghood her self. (The red in red riding hood back then represented her growth as a woman. If you get my meaning.) The start shows a guy finding the girls hankey and following her "scent" to the party. Where he then presumes to seduce her until he turns and "Eats" her.

    In the middle of the song it shows the man in a dress walking out to "humanity." Disguised as the girl obviously it represents the different guises the animal could wear.In the book the wolf does this to fool the girl, then he eats her/rapes her. The people within dancing can act like the hunter who saves the day or like civilization who fights it off to a point but never really tries to stop it from happening again as the wolf gets away. Then at the end of the song we have the girl dead/eaten/raped who has the same eyes as the wolf. Simbolizing that it is an endless cycle and that she is now a monster. (Im not saying she has hurt anyone or done any thing monsterly, but Rammstein leaves it as a distinct possibility).

    I would love to see someone come with greater depth with this song, I know this has more going on in its symobolizom and this is really only just the tip.

    General CommentI heard this song was based on the book Perfume, I'm not sure by whom. It's about this guy who kills girls who smell good and makes perfumes from them.

    General Commentthe title means "you smell so good". I think you can figure it out from there.

    General CommentOf course, maybe the two reasons people don´t comment on this song are:
    1. Nobody cares
    2. This song is too obvious. This is just a pure Rammstein style song about sex, and weird love, if you are used to it you get it.

    General CommentWell, when a vampire attacks somebody ´they really enjoy it, in fact, vampires drink each others blood to show love. For them it´s like sex.
    ++OH, WELL, I WAS WRONG++

    General CommentThe film clip is cool: It looks like a trailer for the most recent film adaption of Bram Stokers Dracula with Anthony Hopkins

    General CommentThis song is about a werewolf that gets the scent of the girl so he goes and tries finding her. When he does he (möchte haben Geschlecht) he bites her then leavesht and she becomes a werewolf like the group is. Based on the video

    General CommentThis song sounds good, so what if the lyrics are a little strange.

    General CommentAny true fan of any band would take their word for it when they say something. Thus, if you can't take their word for it and believe them when they say it's about vampires rather than sex you aren't really that devoted to them, are you?

    @Juggalos2d:
    Guessing werewolves based on the videos was a nice guess. However, vampires also have the ability to transform into wolves as well as bats, though they're mostly associated with bats in cartoons and movies, probably to minimize confusion with werewolves. When it comes to changing into their animal forms the main difference between a vampire and a lycanthrope is that a vampire can change at will. A lycanthrope can become able to change at will or resist changing in the light of the full moon, but it requires incredible effort and a strong will to do so.
