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.
Monday 21 August: LZ7 – Give My All
This brand new, past paced track is a rare addition to my Running on 160 bpm tracks playlist. Who would have thought that LZ7 could go that fast?
Tuesday 22 August: Decap & Toby – Welcome to the Blockchain (The Bitcoin Song)
A meeting on blockchain technology opportunities to finish my work day. There’s a song for that.

Thursday 24 August: Allah-Las – The Earth Won’t Hold Me
The aftermath of threat of a terrorist attack on the Allah-Las concert in Maassilo, Rotterdam results in a matching brand new single by the band.
Inderdaad, The Earth Won't Hold Me van @allahlas is lekker, juist gisteren uitgebracht. https://t.co/vAcwZJNXmF https://t.co/Rph55fCYOr
