Schlager time: Elz Bakker revives Carola's Invincible

I noticed this schlager ditty entered the Dutch single top 100 this week.
It's a coverversion of Carola's 3rd Eurovision entry Invincible (Evighet in the Swedish selection).
Carola's English version ended up 5th in the Athens Eurovision Song Contest of 2006.
Elz Bakker's Dutch coverversion Laat Mij Voor Jou De Laatste Zijn (Let me be your last one) is out now on the NRGY label.
Downloads are available at the tunes and other sources.

More Carola at Eurocovers in 2008.
