****
Skurriler Titel mit einigen angedeuteten Jodlern.

In dem Versuch etwas Originelles zu schaffen, kam leider etwas völlig Albernes heraus. Nervender Orgelsound, lächerliche Jodler-Einlagen, schwache Melodie.
**
...schwach...
***
'One time a long time ago,
On a mountain in Switzerland,
Yo lo lo lo,
There lived a fair young maiden,
Lovely but lonely,
Oh oh oh oh.

Day after day,
She'd pine her heart away,
Yo lo lo lady yay,
But no love came her way.

Some day papa said,
Some day we'll go,
Down to the village in the valley,
Then you'll meet a nice young man,
Ask for your hand,
Then you'll be happy

--------------------------------------------------------

Every day she grew unhappier,
On a mountain in Switzerland,
Yo lo lo lo,
Every day a little bit lonelier,
Which way to turn and which way to go

Day after day,
She'd pine her heart away,
Yo lo lo lady yay,
But no love came her way.

Some say the maidens dream,
Never came true,
She never got to go to the valley,
If she did or not,
I really don't know, Oh oh oh oh.
Did she die unhappy?

I'd rather think she found her love,
Wouldn't she be better if she did find love?
Somewhere,
Some way.

Yo lo lo lady yay,
Yo lo lo lady yay'


Diesen Song widme ich natürlich Schwizerin :-)

US # 64 im Herbst 1962.

▓ Vind ik persoonlijk helemaal niet zo'n rotplaat, integendeel !!! Ook in Holland deed de plaat het best goed in de Hollandse hitlijsten van begin januari t/m eind maart 1963 !!! De 12e plaats was de hoogste notering voor "Del Shannon" !!! Als ik deze plaat hoor moet ik gelijk aan de zeer grappige coverversie van "André van Duin" uit 1972 denken, "Angelique" !!!
****
find's ganz witzig..
****
Auch noch ein netter Del Shannon Titel, auch wenn er nicht ganz so spritzig klingt wie etwa Runaway oder Keep Searching.
****
Netter Jodelversuch, mehr nicht
****
Hoompapa hoompapa......1962 !
****
Ganz nettes flottes Stück.
****
...richtig, heute nicht mehr so rickelnd.
****
Roger Miller's 'Swiss Maid' war in der Version von Del Shannon 1962 ein großer Hit (# 3 in UK, # 4 in Australien), aber in der Schweiz scheinbar kein Erfolg. Schade, ist doch ein origineller Titel. Richtig witzig wurde es erst 1972, als André van Duin seine niederländische Fassung 'Angelique' aufnahm und damit eine langjährige und noch andauernde Karriere starten konnte.
****
haha - nach Frank Ifield noch eine Jodelei...der Typ war in der Schweiz und hat den Jodel mit nach Hause gebracht, er will seiner Angebeteten hiermit wohl imponieren - 4*...damit 1962/63 4 Wochen auf #8 in Norwegen...
****
okay
***
De originele Angelique van André van Duin. Aardige maar niet zijn beste plaat.
***
Okay track.
*****
... so schlecht finde ich das nicht, sehr originell ...
****
Das Jodel nervt schon, knappe 4*
****
Ok
******
great song
*****
gefällt mir auch sehr gut - gerade das Gejodel wurde stimmig und unaufdringlich in den Song eingebaut, humbaba! = wunderbar ;-)
4.75*

...sorry aber das gefällt mir nicht - jodeln höre ich absolut nicht gerne und Cliché mag ich auch nicht -...
**
Die Swiss Maids haben mit Sicherheit ein besseres Lied verdient als diese äußerst bescheidene Nummer. 2+
****
Jodeln geht anders! Trotzdem ok!
****
kan er net mee door
****

Schon bisschen schräg mit dem Jodeln, aber irgendwie auch süss.

1962: #2 UK (dort sein grösster Hit :-)).
