Lyrics of Autobahn

Wir fahr'n fahr'n fahr'n auf der Autobahn
fahr'n fahr'n fahr'n auf der Autobahn
Wir fahr'n fahr'n fahr'n auf der Autobahn
fahr'n fahr'n fahr'n auf der Autobahn
Wir fahr'n fahr'n fahr'n auf der Autobahn
fahr'n fahr'n fahr'n auf der Autobahn
Vor uns liegt ein weites Tal
die Sonne scheint - ein Glitzerstrahl !
Wir fahr'n fahr'n fahr'n auf der Autobahn
fahr'n fahr'n fahr'n...
Fahrbahn ist ein graues Band
weisse Streifen
grüner Rand
Wir fahr'n...

'Autobahn' is a song composed in 1974 by Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider of the German electronic band Kraftwerk, with Emil Schult collaborating on the lyrics. It was their first track to use sung lyrics. It is designed to capture the feel of driving on a motorway.

A version of the song lasting over 22 minutes was recorded as the title track of the album 'Autobahn'. This was edited to a more modest 4 minutes and released as a single, giving the band an unexpected Top 40 hit in the USA, and other countries, the first of their career. A differently edited version, at 3 minutes duration, was released in the UK, reaching #11, and was later included on the UK compilation LP 'Exceller 8'. The song also reached #12 in Canada (Vertigo VE-203).

The instrumentation used on the song's 1974 recording was highly innovative at the time and is notable for the significant influence it had on many subsequent genres of electronic popular and dance music.

This recording was co-produced by the influential Krautrock producer Conny Plank.

Notable aspects of the arrangement included: * Electronic percussion pads played by Wolfgang Flür.

* Use of a classic 'Moog bass' sound to play the bass line, playing an octave riff with added analogue echo.

* Liberal use of phasing on synths to play the chords.

* Use of a vocoder to process some of the vocals.

* Use of the so-called 'motorik' 4/4 drum beat in the song's final section.

The arrangement also included acoustic elements such as guitar and flute.

The band have continued to perform the song live regularly throughout their career. Live arrangements have evolved continuously as the band have adapted the instrumentation and equipment they use on stage.
