Zo gaat ons leven voorbij - Rob Meier

This is one very strange single. 'Zo gaat ons leven voorbij' ('And so our lives pass by') is a collection of short talks with several characters, including such immortal lines as 'Vreet maar uit je neus en je bent toch al zo vet' ('Eating out of your nose as if you're not fat enough').

So who's Rob Meier? Where did he come from? What did he do before and after this single? No-one really knows. There is no information about the man anywhere and the single itself did not chart in the Netherlands. All that remains is this rather strange single.

I do wonder what foreign readers make of this. Tell me your thoughts after hearing this...

My collection: 7" single no. 211
Found: Disco Market, Den Haag, 1983
Cost: 2 guilders
Tracks: 'Zo gaat ons leven voorbij' / 'Klaas is de baas'
