What do we live on?

Bertold Brecht’s and Kurt Weill’s Dreigroschenoper (Three penny opera) is a fascinating piece of music. Straight from the Weimar republic, full of communist rhetoric and a passion for the needs of the common man. On this playlist I took the theme of one of its key songs (Ballade über die Frage: ‘Wovon lebt der Mensch?’) – what do we need first, food or moral principles? as a starting point, and tried to rework it into something less practical and more universal. Daunting…yeah…not sure if I succeeded on ethical/philisophical level, but it’s a pretty awesome playlist.
