Nobody has done a worse Afrikaans cover than Jim Reeves. Try work out what he means to say…I challenge you!

When I first heard Jim Reeves’ attempt at “Ek verlang na jou” a few years back…I nearly shat myself with laughter.  I can understand why he did it, and why the promoters behind it were involved.  But surely someone could have guided him through the lyrics sheet a wee bit better.

Jim Reeves was out in South Africa in 1963 to make a local movie called “Kimberley Jim”

According to Wikipedia, he was bigger than Elvis in South Africa in those days.

I present, for your viewing and audio pleasure…..
