Du riechst so gut is the 1st single off the album Herzeleid by Rammstein. It was released on 24 August 1995.

Information

Misprint

The credits are a little misprinted on all versions of the single. It says "Track 2 remixed by Rewig/Spilles for Project Pitchfork 4". It is actually track 3 that is the remix on the CD. On all releases Du riechst so gut is called the "Single Version". Interestingly, the commercial single includes the standard album version, while the promotional card sleeve includes a version that is 15 seconds longer.

Remix

The remix was contributed to the single by Project Pitchfork.

Promotion

The front of the Motor Music promo card.

The famous Riech! Box, made to promote Herzeleid, and the Du riechst so gut single in 1995 was released by Motor Music. Some copies of this promo box came with a Motor Music Info Card which was inserted inside of the Du riechst so gut Duft-Digipak inside of the box. The front and back of this info card reads as follows:

Es gibt kaum eine Newcomer-Band über die bereits im Vorfeld so viel geredet wurde wie RAMMSTEIN. Sicher werden es einige kaum glauben können, aber das Debüt-Album "Herzeleid" ist endlich fertiggestellt.

Produziert von keinem Geringeren als Jacob Hellner (Clawfinger) präsentieren RAMMSTEIN eine spektakuläre, nie dagewesene Mischung aus Metalriffs, Sextalk, rhythmischen Peitschenhieben und hochmütigem Knurren. Expressiv und bildermächtig drängen RAMMSTEIN zum größtmöglichen Ausdruck, dem reinen Gefühl, und gelangen unweigerlich zum Ziel.
Als erstes Lebenszeichen erscheint die CDX "Du riechst so gut". Ein für Rammstein-Verhältnisse poppiger Gassenhauer um Liebe und Leid am Rande des Wahnsinns. Peter Spilles von Project Pitchfork steurte den hypnotisch-düsteren Insturial-Remix bei. Im Chorus von "Wollt ihr das Bett in Flammen sehen" zieren RAMMSTEIN sich nicht dem geneigten Hörer den eigenen Bandnamen für immer und ewig ins Gedächtnis zu hämmern. Herrlich!
