18th April 2015: Covers Week – Day 6: Hugo de Groot – Ze nemen me eindelijk mee ha ha

Language – Dutch

Cover of ‘They’re Coming To Take Me Away’

The original track by Jerry Samuels / Napoleon XIV was, let’s face it, very strange. I adore the fact that it translated and obviously suited the Dutch sense of humour. You can read more about the single here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/They%27re_Coming_to_Take_Me_Away,_Ha-Haaa!

This is on the totally fabulous ‘Biet Het’ compilation, which has an extraordinarily good selection of tracks from the Netherlands and Belgium.  Details of this album here: http://www.discogs.com/Various-Biet-Het-Volume-One-29-Lost-Dutch-Belgian-Beat-RB-Psych-Killers/release/1369973
