A new year kicked off. The first batch of contributions to Henk-Jan’s soundtrack to 2018 in Spotify. A memorable song each day. A retrospective on the past 10 days.
Monday 1 January: Lekker Gewoon – We Zijn Weer Terug
We’re back by Just Normal would be the English song and band name. This New Year’s Day starts in Dutch with a party song by Lekker Gewoon.
Tuesday 2 January: Erasure – Runaround on the Underground
A return fare Ommen – Brussels today. That means running around at Underground stations in Brussels to get to and from the office. Fortunately, a large part of the Belgian working force and students still enjoy their holidays 😉
Wednesday 3 January: Yori Swart – Riding on the Wind
Thursday 4 January: Beck – Broken Train
Early in the morning a train tore down the overhead line between Dronten and Lelystad. For me a detour via Utrecht to Amsterdam Bijlmer ArenA was mandatory. Repair work took whole day and even the next nightly hours. It’s #throwbackthursday by the way, and I found a 1999 song by Beck.
Friday 5 January: Blaudzun – _hey now
Just in: the new single from Blaudzun.
Saturday 6 January: Manafest – You’re Gonna Rise (Doug Weier Remix)
Sunday 7 January: Tobymac – I Just Need U.
Tobymac‘s new single is out. I Just Need U.
Monday 8 January: Manic Drive – Fun-K
Tuesday 9 January: Paramore – Fake Happy (Edit)
Hey, this is indeed a very different take to the original Fake Happy from Paramore’s After Laughter (2017). I suppose the band is more happy with this new version, or is it fake?
Wednesday 10 January: Luminary, Smith & Pledger – Amsterdam
Another day spent in Amsterdam. Why not have a vocal trance track as souvenir?
