Each day I add music to my soundtrack to 2020 Spotify playlist. Here’s the list for the first batch in December.
Tuesday 1 December: Sandra McCracken – Call Him Good (Psalm 104)
Wednesday 2 December: Delirious? – My Glorious
For me, the continuous worship of God in the heavenly realm is one of the core messages in the Bible book of Revelation. I selected a song by Delirious? originally on Glo (2000) for today.
Thursday 3 December: Giorgio Moroder & Marko Bussian – Never Ending Story
This #throwbackthursday I selected the Marko Bussian remix of Never Ending Story, the synth-pop hit by Limahl in 1984. The song was actually written by Giorgio Morodor. Quite funny to see a German producer now covering a song written by an German-speaking synthesizer guru from Südtirol, Italy, although the original didn’t make it to the German version of the the movie.
Friday 4 December: Romy – Lifetime
Saturday 5 December: Diego – De Sinterklaas Medley
Time to celebrate Sinterklaas at home.
Sunday 6 December: Maggie Rogers – One + Off
It doesn’t happen that often, but yesterday night my son’s contribution to a join family session in Spotify drew my attention to American singer-songwriter Maggie Rogers. On + Off from her Now the Light is Fading (2017) album.
Monday 7 December: Laura Pausini – Io sì
The closing song in The Life Ahead (La Vita Davanti Sé) (2020) is sung by Laura Pausini: Io sì (Seen).
Tuesday 8 December: Jon Foreman – Behind Your Eyes
There’s so much more behind the occasional “I’m doing fine, thanks. How are you?” A colleague of mine died last week, causing me to cry at noon. COVID-19 impacted others close by. How fragile are we as humans. Jon Foreman on his latest EP Love shares Behind Your Eyes.
Wednesday 9 December: This Afternoon – Language Lessons
Every Wednesday from 5-6 PM I give Dutch conversation lessons to Capgemini colleagues from Indian origin. Well, there’s a song for that 🙂
Thursday 10 December: Torturetekk – Sweet Dreams
It’s #throwbackthursday with Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This), the 1983 Eurythmics hit covered by Torturetekk, comprised of Sean & Jo (music) and Lisa J Vocals/Lyrics. Torturetekk is a Athamay side project.
