Juliane Werding 1975

German singer Juliane Werding on a single-page poster in Bravo of 9 January 1975.

I don’t often feature German singers, and this poster goes up because I think it looks good. Werding had scored a million-selling hit in 1972 as a teenager with Am Tag, als Conny Kramer starb, a German version of “The Day They Drive Old Dixie Down” (her take was an anti-drug song, apparently based on the overdose of a friend). For a while she had no hits, as she finished her schooling. In late 1975 she struck gold with a rather good German country song, “Wenn du denkst, du denkst, dann denkst du nur, du denkst”. She fell out with her producer and for a while had no hits.

She established herself as a regular presence in the charts in the 1980s, at first with German covers of songs by Sally Oldfield and Nik Kershaw. She retired in 2009 to work as a healing practitioner.
