Die Liga der gewöhnlichen Gentlemen (the league of ordinary gentlemen), a new German band featuring musicians who have left their mark in the German music scene in previous bands and as industry professionals, have released a charming song about the music of the Four Tops: “Der fünfte Four Top”.

Even if you understand German, I believe you can hear past the Four Tops references (not that you have to) and just embrace this song as a love letter to music in general:

Wir ertränken unsere Sorgen in Musik
In den Sounds, den Harmonien und in dem Beat

We drown our worries in music
In the sounds, the harmonies and the beat

Tapete Records is offering the song as a free download via Soundcloud.
