Trans-Europe Express (German: Trans Europa Express) is the sixth studio album by German electronic music band Kraftwerk. Recorded in mid-1976 in Düsseldorf, Germany, the album was released in March 1977 on Kling Klang Records. It saw the group refine their melodic electronic style, with a focus on sequenced rhythms, minimalism, and occasionally manipulated vocals.

Trans-Europe Express" (German: "Trans Europa Express" ) is the title song from the Kraftwerk album Trans-Europe Express and is the fourth on the album. It was later remixed with eleven other songs on the remix album, The Mix. The music was written by Ralf Hütter, and the lyrics by Hütter and Florian Schneider A new version of Trans-Europe Express was included on the 1991 album The Mix. This version is considerably shorter than the original and omits the verse about David Bowie and Iggy Pop. It also segues directly into the tracks Abzug and Metal on Metal, although the fusion with the former makes Trans Europe Express closer to the original in duration.

Album: Trans-Europe Express (1977). Charted: 67. Get the Sheet Music License This Song. The title track of Kraftwerk's 1977 album of the same name, this contributed to the ongoing mutual appreciation society formed by David Bowie and the German electronic band in the late 1970s. The bond started when Bowie borrowed some of Kraftwerk's ideas on their 22-minute epic "Autobahn" for his Station to Station album. They included the title track beginning with an electronically generated impression of a chugging train.

Talk about Kraftwerk - Trans-Europe Express


Kecq
The LP that defined Kraftwerk on a global scale, and one that had a seismic effect on the world's dancefloors, if only by proxy. Trans Europe Express followed on the back of the haunting and somewhat melancholic Radioactivity and propelled them from being pastoral Teutons to being progenitors of the robopop sound whilst all the time retaining a unique perspective on popular music and culture that makes them the most influential and compelling act of the last 30 years. This LP is arguably Kraftwerk's finest, combining an expressive romanticism outlined in the majestic "Europe Endless" with the sort of dancefloor nous in "Metal on Metal" that defined the band from then on. The fact that this LP is primarily about a train journey adds to its cultural weight, as railway journeys within a literary context often are seen as metaphors for change. Whilst Trans Europe Express didn't effect anything overnight, it makes a compelling case , like most of Kraftwerk's LPs for laying the seed for much of what we listen to today.
