Lordi is still alive and Swedish Drifters goes Sha La Lie

Two videos, two bands and two songs to remember from this week in August. Finnish Lordi and Swedish Drifters. What do they have in common? Not much except that Lordi won Eurovision 2006 and the Dutch entry "Sha La Lie" with Sieneke participated in the same contest 2010.

The cover 'dansband' version by Drifters shows that a song like "Sha La Lie", which got so much negative feedback, before and under Eurovision, ends up being a kind of success after all. Maybe a compensation for the failure in Oslo and it certainly generates some money to the composer Pierre Kartner, alias Father Smurf.

Since the victory of Lordi in Athens 2006 I have hardly seen or heard anything about the group. Maybe it would have been different if I lived in Finland. Despite the fact that I'm not a fan of monsters, nor today's metal/heavy rock (thanks heaven for Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin and Uriah Heep....), I still appreciate this new song from Lordi.
