Jewellery? Music? Both of those things are included in this weeks poll!
So let's get right to it.
Poll 4 - All I Want For Christmas - Jenny Version
A picture says more than thousand words.
So look at Jenny dressed in your favorites!
Well, there's actually just one word: Hot!
Let's all hope this is what will be lying under our christmas tree ;)

Poll 5 - The Love is alive with the Sound of Music
What distinguishes a good from an outstanding series? The actors? The locations? The story? Surely it does, but there's yet another point: the music! (For examples, in which the music also made the movies, you might want to think of films like: 'The Great white shark', 'Psycho', 'Imagine Me and You', 'The Thorn Birds'...etc. etc.)
Rarely, if not even never before, the music in a german or maybe even worldwide soap (soap!) was used as wonderfully as in Hand aufs Herz. And we're not just talking about the pieces of music, which the STAG or their individual members performed. We're talking about the soundtrack and the original music, which filled the scenes with even more intensity, emotions and drama as we watched them in our living room or our laptop screens.
Of course it goes without saying, that also Jemma lived through and with those soundtracks. And this wouldn't be a poll and we wouldn't be ourselves, if we wouldn't want to have a decision from you which one you would like to give a special award to.
Which stroke of genius of the creative Team of Hand aufs Herz has surpised, touched, moved and blown you away the most? Because this poll can also be considered as a kind of curtsey and acknowledgment to the far-sightedness and sensitiveness the responsible persons put in the song choice. Or do you think that the hotel-postcard scene with Emma and her apology to Jenny would have been as much of a heartbreaker with 'Elvis Presley - Return to Sender' jamming away in the background? Exactly!
So here are the choices of this weeks poll!
Psst, little tip, click on the pics to see the scenes ;)
Save Me From Myself:
Episode 124, we didn't think the couch scene would have ever been able to be topped, much less did we dare to dream about it. But then this homage to Walt Disney's masterpiece 'Lady and the Tramp' (Oh wow, the german title is much...nicer. 'Susi and Strolch') followed! The back alley is replaced with the class room, the candlelight gets substituted by neon light and pasta with meatballs quickly turns into a banner (what do we want with meatballs after all?), but the romance strikes anyway - undoubtedly so. At the lines 'It's not so easy loving me' our hearts pound erratically in our chest, with their meaningful kiss the butterflies are flapping their wings in our bellies, and when we arrive at the final setting we exhale happily after we unconsciously had stopped breathing since they first entered the class room. And with that we realize, like the two of them, too, that: We have just fallen in love!
Who didn't suffer with her, when Jenny's head came to rest on a pillow, while the words 'welcome to my silly life' resounded through the Bergmann living room, only to then being wholeheartedly finished off by her getting up in the next second and dancing that world-famous, beloved and often mentioned 'Angry Ballet'. (Who wouldn't have liked to be the wall, counter or sofa here?) Scarcely, feelings, that everyone who has been in love once knows, are being so easily and impressively conveyed. And who would have thought that pizza in the combination with ballet could be that sexy?
Who didn't shed some tears when Emma finally gathered all her courage and poured the content of her heart out and into those two postcards? Her self-consciousness, but also her longing are reflected beautifully in her face and body language. And somehow one gets the feeling that Christina wrote that song for this moment only. For this hotel room. For this postcard. For our Emma.
What a roller coaster ride of feelings we went through.
Happiness. Hurt. Hope. Disappointment. Realization.
And while 'Auburn' tells us about the captain and the first mate, the chills on our first date, the hero and the sidekick..., we all turn back into giggling teenagers with butterflies in our belly, and decide that we should go and buy some peanut butter and some jelly again some time soon, while we feel free and like we're defying gravity, just like Jemma, in this moment.
Road To Somewhere:
Three o'clock I'm on my way on the road to somewhere
Little clouds like wounds that blow away
Listening to the radio like a friend that guides me
Playing out every song we used to know
Dream, dream you're not too late
Sweet road to somewhere else
And afterwards Emma's (just like our) face behold the message clearly. We just had our first time.
Love Ain’t Gonna Let You Down:
The title says it all. And let's be honest, if someons would have told or just hinted at us that one of the most romantic scenes of Jemma would play out in the Bergmann bathroom.....
In one simple sentence the song explains a relationship and its love. And that is being reflected in Emma's proud gaze and Jenny's grateful kiss. Just a small moment, but hardly to be surpassed in intensity. A great performance, with great music.
Girl From Ipanema:
Who picked this song out is a frickin' genius. So there's not only a lesson of geography (Ipanema is a city in brazil) and music contained, but also the most beautiful dancing lesson which the world has ever seen (it's rumba by the way). We're honestly asking ourselves, why there hasn't been a boom for dancing schools! Jemmalicious for beginners. Dresscode: Plaid Shirt and Glitter Leggings. And just to be clear: Today I am leading!
Probably you'll be missing a lot of songs, but we decided that we'll concentrate on those selected few. (Pst, there might be other polls coming up with similar, but also very different content. It's all in the works, so keep patient ;) )
Like always we are looking forward to your votes and your comments about the mentioned and not mentioned songs!
Now, we're wishing you a lot of fun while voting. Don't feel too much anguish about having to decide for only one ;D
We're looking forward to the outcome!
