'k Zen zo gere Polies - De Strangers

After releasing a version of the 1985 Eurovision winner as Lot ons swingen, Belgian band De Strangers decided to make an annual event of it. Their 1986 cover version was derived from Sandra Kim's J'aime la vie. Sandra represeted Belgium, and it was the first time that Belgium won the Contest.

In their undecipherable Antwerp dialect, the Strangers sing that they would like to be a policeman. Not exactly sure, because I can't really understand what they are singing at all. Evidently, most Belgians could, as this single actually gave them a hit: ''k Zen zo gere Polies' peaked at number 23 in the Belgian chart.

My collection: 7" single no. 5618
Found: Chelsea Records, Antwerpen, August 10, 2014
Cost: 2 euro
Tracks: ''k Zen zo gere Polies' / 'Allee allee mokt da na mee'
