European Cup song copied from Dynamo fans: Ballermann star Julian Benz steps back

Malle singer Julian Benz withdraws his song, which was copied from the European Cup song by Dynamo Dresden fans.

Dresden – Not only fans of Eintracht Frankfurt can’t get enough of the magical European Cup nights. Fans of other clubs also dream of unforgettable cup matches in Europe. Second division supporters Dynamo Dresden even developed special songs for it. Schlager singer Julian Benz (28) was more than clearly inspired by this. But now the Ballermann star has to step back technically.

“I had a dream and that dream was wonderful
On a team trip – it was an away game at Arenal
All the girls and boys just sang a song for you at Ballermann – come dance for me, sing for me!
Lalalalalalalala…”, had composed the singer and his own version to the tune of “Ramp! The logical song” on the market.

The resemblance to the European Cup song of Dresden fans singing an away game in Amsterdam was very clear and was received extremely critically by (Dresden) football fans.

There were some negative comments for Julian Benz, so ‘Jöli’, as the 28-year-old is often called, decided to reconsider.

“I had a dream and woke up painfully from it,” the singer from Mallorca begins in his statement on Instagram.

“Anyone who knows me knows that I never wanted to hurt anyone or take anything away,” says Julian Benz and explains that he acted prematurely because of the euphoria aroused by the song and the text.

“I have now decided to completely remove the song from this release from the marketplace,” the post continues.

There, the singer announced a new song to the original 1979 Supertramp tune with completely new lyrics.

In order to calm the waves of fans, the 28-year-old also decided to donate 2,000 euros to “Sonnenstrahl e. V.”, an organization in Dresden that supports children and young people with cancer.
