Geboren voor het geluk - Het Goede Doel

Taken from their 1984 album 'Tempo Doeloe', 'Geboren voor het geluk' was an ill-fated single. Despite the humorous lyric and the strong music, the Dutch audience was no longer interested in the group, it seemed.

'Geboren voor het geluk' ('Born to be lucky') is about a man who is always unlucky (falling off the stairs, a wife who is unfaithful to him) but consolates himself with the statement that things could always be worse. As often with the band, it's hard to tell if this is meant to be taken at face value, or more cynical.

My collection: 7" single no. 2857
Found: Disco Market, Den Haag, June 21, 1997
Cost: 1 guilder
Tracks: 'Geboren voor het geluk' / 'Sous-chef'
