Memorable songs of 21-28 February 2017

In 2016 I beat the HotSpotify 366 challenge, for which I added one special song each day to a Spotify playlist, I had too much to leave it there. As follow-up I created Henk-Jan’s soundtrack to 2017 in Spotify. The final week of February passed and got its musical companion.

Tuesday, 21 February: Ogr001 – Thalys (le dernier voyage de M. Henri)

This morning I took the Thalys high speed train again from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport to Brussels.

Wednesday, 22 February: Day Wave – Something Here

The American Indie / synth rock band Day Wave was formed in 2014. Former Carousel half will be playing in Amsterdam (Melkweg stage) on 19 May. Something Here is a brand new single.

Thursday, 23 February: Jess & Gabriel – Can’t Help Falling In Love

For those who though that UB40 penned this song: nope, it was Elvis Presley who featured the song in his 1961 film, Blue Hawaii. Elvis tended to close his live shows with this love song during the late 1960s and 1970s. The British reggae band UB40 had a smash hit with their 1993 version on the Promises and Lies album. A couple of weeks ago, I saw the Promises & Lies: The Story of UB40 documentary. Explosive and a true behind the scenes.Throwback Thursday with a recent cover by the Australian
