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.
Friday 11 August: Echosmith – Goodbye
Another work week passed by. To realize that only last week we were on vacation in France is embarassing. Goodbye work, see you back on Monday.
Saturday 12 August: Seven Lions – Higher Love (Spencer Brown remix)
Dance the night away with EDM producer Seven Lions.
Sunday 13 August: Lights – Meteorites
This weekend the heavens show the Perseid Meteor Shower.
Monday 14 August: Don Quichot & Mees Loman – Utreg
Today I’m providing the second day of a PRINCE2 Agile Practitioner course in Utrecht. In slang Utreg, and that’s exactly what this Dutch song is about.
Tuesday 15 August: Alex Lahey – Every Day’s the Weekend
It’s all perception, isn’t it? According to Alex Lahey Tuesday’s Child becomes a Party Girl.
Wednesday 16 August: 24/7 & Siobhan – Work From Home
Guess what I’m doing today.
Thursday 17 August: Jenny & Tyler – Fix You
It’s #throwbackthursday. This time Jenny & Tyler’s cover of Coldplay’s Fix You (a hit from their 2005 X^Y album). The 2017 cover appears on the 5 track EP For Freedom II.
Friday 18 August: Madeline Juno – Gift
8 September is the release date of DNA, the new album of German singer / songwriter Madeline Juno. The second single after Still, Gift, sounds inviting.
Saturday 19 August: Steve Angello & Paul Meany – Breaking Kind
Mutemath‘s Paul Meany shares the microphone on Greek-Swedish DJ, record producer, remixer and label owner Steve Angello‘s new 2 song EP Genesis. What happened to the good old single with an A and B side? The second song on the EP, Rejoice, features a thundering mini sermon of pastor T.D. Jakes. FYI In ten days I’ll be at a Mutemath concert in Tivoli, Utrecht!
Sunday 20 August: The Motors – Airport
Today I had to pick up my son and three of his friends from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport at awful early time: 3.30 AM after a 90mins drive across the Netherlands. One of the boys is really into classic rock. Then The Motors showing up with Airport (1978) is a perfect match.
