Song of the day: Kid Creole & the Coconuts- Annie, I’m Not Your Daddy

Kid+Creole+&+The+Coconuts+-+Annie,+I'm+Not+Your+Daddy

In the eighties, there was a group who called themselves Kid Creole & The Coconuts. No, this is not a joke, this is reality. The brain behind the group was August Darnell, or actually I should say: is. The group still exists, mixing disco and latin music with big band and more styles. August is Kid Creole, and the three lovely ladies in the picture are his backing vocals, the Coconuts. Before Darnell became Kid Creole (yes, stolen from Elvis Presley) he worked as English teacher and he was working with his brother in the band Dr. Buzzard’s Original Savannah Band. (Crazy about long names, he is). In 1982 he released a new album with his new group, Tropical Gangsters (or in the US: Wise Guy). A lot of songs became hits, and the song of the day was one of them.

Song(s) of the day: Andy Grammar- Fine By Me / Lisa Lois- Silhouette

Hello there,

We are starting March right with two new songs! And they are good, trust me…

The first song is made by a Dutch singer, who has won a talent show a few years ago.
After her first hit a few years ago, Hallelujah, she is back with a new song: Silhouette.
It’s Lisa Lois!

The second song is made by someone who had his first big hit last year, and he is just continuing with this.
His last name is my favourite part of the English lessons (absolutely not)!
It’s Andy Grammer with Fine By Me!

These were the songs for today, tomorrow an older song.

Song of the day: Blof & the Counting Crows- Holiday In Spain

Hello everyone,

Here’s the new song of the day. The song of today is a half Dutch/half English song.

It’s a cooperation between the American band The Counting Crows and the Dutch band Blof.

The song which was the result is Holiday in Spain.

Blof is existing for 20 years this year, and they have made a lot of hits, all sung in Dutch.

I’m fan of them, so that’s why they are the song of the day.

Tomorrow a new song of the day!
