Song of the day: Ekseption- The Fifth
In 1969, Ekseption (Dutch band with Dutch spelling) decided to change their music style. They first had been playing quite some jazz, R&B and rock ‘n roll, but after seeing the English band the Nice they decided to make a mix of classical music and rock. The first hit that they made in this new style was The 5th, which was a different take on the fifth symphony from Beethoven. The song made it to the third place in the charts. Enjoy
