My Hartjie

I’ve done it again.  Posted an Afrikaans song, only because every time the Wife and Princess hears the song it goes on full blast.  Thinking about it, it’s actually beyond full blast. I am fearing for the speakers. It’s way louder than one would expect from a teacher or a responsible parent.  You can hear them coming from several blocks away. With closed windows. And their excuse?

“We love the song!”

So I played the role of responsible parent, for once, and decided to judge the song on a more moderate volume. Only to end up turning the dial a few notches and jumping into my own vey bad kareoke version of it. This song is highly infectious.  Albeit in Afrikaans.

It’s my blog, I can do what I want.

So enjoy My Hartjie as sung by the Princess of Afrikaans Pop, Karlien van Jaarsveld.

    Even though I didn’t understand a work of the lyrics, I love this song! It has such a catchy tune. I wish I could find the English translation for the lyrics.

    Ou Karlien. This one is not my fav of hers, I like Hande more. Esp the music video where she sings “ek sal kaalvoet loop” with massive high heels. your blog is awesome btw.

        No way! Ek’t al daai music video gekyk en nooit die connection gemaak nie. ALS van Karlien se video is hieruit haha. Behalwe vir Brad. Ai ons Afrikaners is maar lekker oorspronklik.

        The two videos are very similar. I like Karlien’s video but my heart’s with Brad on this one.
