Henk-Jan’s soundtrack to 2019: 11-20 October

Each day I add music to my soundtrack to 2019 Spotify playlist. Here’s the list for the second leg of October 2019.

Friday 11 October: Delain – Burning Bridges

Solid new track by Dutch symphonic metal band Delain.

Saturday 12 October: Lost Frequencies – Sun Is Shining

Both factual true as well as an amen to Lost Frequencies“Glory, Glory, halleluja, sun is shining down. I’m alive and feeling fine.” in the opening track of their new album Alive and Feeling Fine. Today, I wrote a review to the 23 tracks on this record. It will be published soon.

Sunday 13 October: The Big Moon – Your Light

Sunday again. Let’s remember the Light with UK-based The Big Moon.

Monday 14 October: Het Vreemdelingencollectief – Dit Is Uw Koninkrijk

Today, Het Vreemdelingencollectief sent out their farewell email. Johan Jeras will without a band continue exploring musical adventures, starting with singing Charles Wesley hymns. For now, one of my favorite Het Vreemdelingencollectief tracks, is my thank you for all great music as a collective.

Tuesday 15 October: Nina Simone – Four Women

I have four women in my two-days PRINCE2 Foundation training these days. Quite unusual, diverse, inclusive, and funny too. One participant is from the Philippines, one from Poland, another one from Lithuania, and finally one from Iran. In 1966 Nina Simone wrote the song to accompany us today.

Wednesday 16 October: Moyka – Ride

EQMusic.com hinted me to Moyka. Infectuous synth pop and vocals.

Thursday 17 October: Metric – Risk

Today and tomorrow I facilitate Capgemini University’s program to help participants prepare themselves for PMI’s Project Management Professional certification exam on Risk Management.

Friday 18 October: The Easybeats – Friday on my Mind

Saturday 19 October: Flying Colors – Guardian

Taken from the brand new Third Degree album here’s Guardian by Flying Colors.

Sunday 20 October: Derrie Daugherty – Saing Goodbye

Upon entering church this morning, I heard that yesterday one of the fellow believers, a father, and member of the steering committee (comparable to deacons elsewhere) suddenly passed away. As congregation we spent time praying and seeking consolation in God’s faithfulness despite the grief. Superficial one-liners are not welcome, we cannot make this understandable. I treasure the honesty of Derri Daugherty in this, reflecting on his father’s deathbed.
