"The Smurf Song" Re-Recorded With André Rieu?

"The Smurf Song" Re-Recorded With André Rieu?

Tuesday June 28, 2011: Father Abraham plans to revive "The Smurf Song". "It's not concrete, but I would like a classic version with André Rieu and his orchestra. "That lalala on violin, sounds surprisingly good", said the father. (André Rieu recorded "The Red Rose Café composed by Father Abraham.)
In this way Pierre Kartner, (as Father Abraham was originally called), might start a revival of the Smurfs. However, the return of the Blue Characters seem faster than expected, because on August 3, 2011 'The Smurfs Movie' will premiere in 3D.
The 75-year-old singer does not like the film. "They have denied the original idea of the Smurfs: a peaceful tribe, who live in a mushroom country with lots of green around. In the movie they end up in New York, but the Smurfs do not fit in that big city", he explains in the Flemish Newspaper. "I am perhaps old-fashioned, but I think it should remain a fantasy world. Oh, I will not drink less of my glass of wine tonight ... they still remain my blue friends."
As Father Abraham he wrote the Smurfs Song in 1977, 19 years after the Belgian cartoonist Peyo had created the first story about the blue men. "The song was just what the Smurfs needed to break through worldwide. Even now. They can make as many smurfs songs as they want, but mine remains the most famous one", said Pierre.
Father Abraham was not invited to the great American premiere . "I am a little saddened, yes. I have put the Smurfs on the map around the world, but this is quickly forgotten ..."
