Boudewijn de Groot: Jimmy

Boudewijn de Groot, one of the greatest Dutch ballad singers of all time, had his major successes in the sixties, but in 1973 he did manage a final top10 hit with Jimmy (sometimes subtitled Hoe sterk is de eenzame fietser - How strong is the lonesome bicycle rider, a Dutch image if there ever was one). Not his best song, but not too shabby either.

Year: 1973
Charted: 11 weeks
Top position: 6
My score: 4/6
