******
When I hear this song, I've got goosepimples. What a great song for the World Wildlife Fund (WWF).
Became a #1 in The Netherlands (2 August 1975)
*****
Sehr schönen Song von Kamahl aus Juli 1975 über die "Elephant"..... Die Platte stand 13 Wochen in die Holländische Top 40 von 1975, mit einen Platz # 1 als Topposition !!!
*****
Riesen hit in NL...... damals sicher ein 6 Punkten song....ist nun etwass verstaubt.... aber 5 ***** sind verdient !
****
scheint ausserhalb der NL wohl völlig unbekannt zu sein?! die stimme ist ein hammer - den typen dazu hab ich mir früher anders vorgestellt. der song hat was sehr trauriges an sich..
*****
Zeer mooie plaat van Kamahl, "The elephant song".
******
Weken op 1 en zeer lang in de Hitparade. Ook de LP deed het erg goed. Een Hans v Hemert productie die nog steeds niet aan kracht heeft ingeboet. Goed.
***
Hier in D kennt den Kamahl wohl kaum einer.........
**
Het is mooi gezongen maar het nummer en ook de stem van Kamahl hebben mij nooit geraakt.
*****
heel mooi nummer
***
ein überaus langweiliges Stück aus Mitte der 70er– seine Lebensgeschichte (in Malaysia geboren, tamilischer Abstammung, übersiedelt nach Australien) ist da weitaus interessanter – 3*...
**
... davon singt er auch eine deutsche Version ... die heißt: Wo die Freude wohnt ... da kommt kein einziger Elefant drin vor !! ... eigentlich doch ein sehr öder Song ...
**
Dit nummer vind ik net te zoet.
*****
Nog steeds een zeer aardig nummer.
***
Nummer dat anno 1975 vijf weken op nummer één stond in de Vlaamse charts. Heeft me persoonlijk nooit echt aangesproken.
*****
Mooi nummer, en terecht 5 weken in de top 30 in 1975
*****
Nog altijd een mooi nummer
****
Absoluut wel een mooi liedje.
*****
Destijds een sensatie
Mooie stem
*****
Een grote zomerhit destijds. En wat hadden we een mooie zomer in 1975! Waardeer hem met maar liefst 5*
