I added ten new songs to Henk-Jan’s soundtrack to 2018 in Spotify. A memorable song each day. Enjoy.
Thursday 1 February: Charlie Straight – Someone With a Slow Heartbeat
I visited Red Cross / Sanquin Blood Bank again today for a blood plasma donation. Heart rate at 50bpm during the medical check-up is the inspiration for today’s song.
Friday 2 February: Handsome Poets – Make It Better
The Dutch band Handsome Poets are back with a new 4 song EP since 2015. Make It Better is the title track from the first of three albums in a series.
Saturday 3 February: The Midnight – We Move Forward
Walk on this Saturday. We move forward with a instrumental trance tune.
Sunday 4 February: Chvrches – Get Out
Wow, a new single by the Scottish synth pop band CHVRCHES.
Monday 5 February: Dallas Kalevala – Moon Makes Me Happy
Monday was called after the Moon. And why would it be a blue Monday? Dallas Kalevala helps you through the day.
Tuesday 6 February: The Horrors – Something to Remember Me By
Smooth synth pop for today. The Horrors don’t scare me.
Wednesday 7 February: Eels – I Need Some Sleep
Flu’s creeping by since Sunday. Sleep, lots of sleep were needed so far to keep me up and running during office hours.
Thursday 8 February: The Cardigans – Sick & Tired
I had to give in today to the flu. No 5 AM wake-up call to get to Brussels for work, but multiple layers of clothing to keep me a little warm. Sick & Tired, yet the mood’s OK. I cannot modify circumstances.
Friday 9 February: Fireflight – I Won’t Look Back
Yes, Fireflight still can rock! Today, the band released I Won’t Look Back. Hopefully more new music, a full album will follow soon.
Saturday 10 February: Caro Emerald – Whatchugot (PiSK remix)
This is a catchy tune!
