Song of the day: Roots Syndicate- Mockin’ Bird Hill
Yeah! Roots Syndicate. One of those one day flies, to have one hit and never return again.
It’s even that bad that they only exist on a Dutch Wikipedia-page, since they were Dutch. For a commercial of an insurances compagny they made a song, which was not ment to be released…
However, it was that popular that it was released, and in the Netherlands it went to number one.
No idea if it was known in other countries, and if not, then it’s about time to listen to this song. It was released in 1993, so it’s 20 years after the release that it’s song of the day! Really like the summer!

And for those interested in the commercial, watch it here. The text appearing in the end is the catchfrase of the compagny: translated it’s Just Call Apeldoorn. Apeldoorn is the place where the insurancescompagny is located.
