dbo:abstract
  • Edelweiss was an Austrian electronica/dance band consisting of remixers Martin Gletschermayer, Matthias Schweger and Walter Werzowa. The group is best known for their 1988 worldwide hit "Bring Me Edelweiss", and their European hit "Starship Edelweiss". The single "To The Mountain Top" became the same famous song of Edelweiss. Edelweiss reached the number one position with their hit "Bring Me Edelweiss," featuring Austrian folk music vocalist Maria Mathis, who also did the live performances (and later recorded an updated version in 1999). The single was a hit in many European countries, supposedly by following the instructions given in The KLF's book The Manual. Borrowing large parts of its melody from ABBA's "SOS" and Indeep's "Last Night a DJ Saved My Life", the song humorously targeted Austrian ski resorts and yodeling and sold five million copies worldwide. Bill Drummond, one of the authors of The Manual, mentioned the group in the epilogue of the German release of the book, which was originally published in 1989 (in English). (en)
