A volkslied is a lied whose origin is among the common people and is merely traditional; a volksthumliches lied is one that is deliberately written in the general style of a volkslied; a kunstlied is one that is designedly and obviously artistic rather than naïve. The lied stands in the same relation to poetry and music in Germany as the chanson in France or the ballad in England. The term is also more or less extended to other than German songs.
