As follow-up to 2016’s HotSpotify 366 challenge, for which I added one special song each day to a Spotify playlist, I created Henk-Jan’s soundtrack to 2017 in Spotify. A memorable song each day. A retrospective on the past 10 days.
Wednesday 21 June: Leon Else – What I Won’t Do
Strong danceable synth pop track by Leon Else. I had a long and concentrated day packed with work. This track is to say goodbye and we’ll meet again tomorrow.
Thursday 22 June: Bronski Beat & Lorie Madison – Smalltown Boy – Classic Mix
This is a perfect example of #throwbackthursday. As a teenager, I was the proud owner of a Toshiba HX-10 MSX computer. Its 3-channel sound card could be programmed, and guess what was one of the first tracks I was able to play on this computer? Bronski Beat‘s Smalltown Boy. And here’s the original 1984 video clip too.
Friday 23 June: The Wild Wild – The Astronaut
Did you ever dream becoming an astronaut? At least I did and chose a different career.
Saturday 24 June: Imagine Dragons – Walking The Wire
Another walking song. Today I’m on my 17th Kennedy March, 50 miles at the Liemers Posbank Loop.
Sunday 25 June: Tenth Avenue North – I Have This Hope (Ailo remix)
The Sunday as first day of a new week, full of hope. Tenth Avenue North just released this remix of I Have This Hope.
Monday 26 June: Kevin Wolter – Amsterdamse Medley
Back to Amsterdam for another work week’s start. Here’s a medley of typical Amsterdam folk songs. Guilty pleasures.

Thursday 29 June: London Grammar – Dreams
