REQUEST: The Good Cause (Het Goede Doel, HGD) - Luxemburg

Postby Nummymuffin » Sat Oct 17, 2020 5:24 pm

Maybe someone here can help me out? This video is the English language version of the 1982 Dutch hit by Het Goede Doel, called "België", and it came out a few years later in 1985. The only video I can find online is this one, and it has two glitches in the audio. Before I attempt to correct the glitches myself (and good luck to me, haha), does anyone have a better copy of this video or the audio file? I've looked for a purchase-able mp3 to no avail, and the 7" single would likely be delayed coming from overseas, or not even mailed at all, thanks to this pandemic. Thanks for any help or info!

Here you go, the full length audio. You really must be a fan as the English is cringeworthy.

Thank you so much for this! You've saved me so much hassle. I don't find the English cringeworthy at all, though. I think it's a fairly clever translation of the original song, right down to rhymes. The music is what I'm here for, though. The melody and that synth!

Thanks again! :D

I have planned this track for one of the future Dutch New Wave Volumes.
