Music documentary: About Meat Loaf

There is a series on TV with all sorts of documentaries on albums of artists: Classic Albums. I absolutely love this series, since the documentaries are very informative, not too long (about an hour) and you really learn something of them. Lately I saw the documentary about Bat Out Of Hell. It was a re-run, but the first time I have missed a part, so I thought: let’s watch it completely this time! And I succeeded.

Why do I choose the documentary of Meat Loaf above all? Because this documentary is on a great album with some hits everybody knows (who doesn’t know Paradise by the Dashboardlight? Apart from most of my classmates, that is…), and with some history and deeper meanings into them. One of the things I learned from this documentary was for instance that the sports part of Paradise By The Dashboardlight was quite naughty… in the Netherlands, this part simply is cut out because the record is too long, in America this part is cut out because of… watch and learn! 🙂

Do you have a link, too? Well, if I’m correct, this must be the one: Bat out of Hell documentary. (if not so, I’m sorry!)

Song of the day: Black Eyed Peas- Don’t Lie

black eyed peas monkey business

Yes, this is a cd I bought last week… it has some hits on it!
One of my favourites is the song of the day, and it really is energetic.

I like it! Don’t Lie!

Song of the day: Mando Diao- Dance With Somebody

Howdy everyone,

Here’s the new song of the day. It’s a very good song, and it will be stuck in your head, and for at least one day, you’ll hear:
I’m gonna dance with somebody, dance with somebody, dance, dance, dance etc.

Of course it’s Mando Diao with Dance With Somebody!

Tomorrow another song!

And vote for the Song Of The Week Top 50! It’s only one week to the release of the list, you can vote till Sunday!

Song of the day: Goo Goo Dolls- Rebel Beat / Robin Thicke feat. T.I. & Pharrell- Blurred Lines

Hi there,

Today TWO new songs!

Firstly, a cool new track from the Goo Goo Dolls.
Of course you know them from the hit Iris, but after that, it was very quiet around them in the Netherlands.
In America, they had some other hits. However, they are back!
Their new single is called Rebel Beat and I love this song!

The second song is also good, and it’s made by someone who we know already. Do you remember When I Get You Alone? This is totally different, but the first experience with the song was a good one, so I suggest it as a possible hit:
Robin Thicke with Blurred Lines (feat. T.I. & Pharrell)

Tomorrow the answer to the small question about Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall from yesterday.

And please VOTE for the Song Of The Day Top 50!

Song of the day: Danny & The Juniors- At The Hop

Hi there,

Here’s the new (rock ‘n roll) song of the day! It starts like a bunch of sheep…
Like bah-bah-bah-bah, bah-bah-bah-bah, etc.

Really nice song, though!
It’s Danny & The Juniors with At The Hop!

And if you think, I know it from a movie, could be! In Grease, the song is covered by Sha-Na-Na.

Don’t forget to vote for the Song Of The Day Top 50!

Song of the day: Dr. Alban- It’s My Life

Hi there,

Today we’ve got a dentist in the house!
The singing dentist had one of his first big hits in 1992.
And this hit is the song of the day…

Dr. Alban sings his big hit It’s My Life!

Tomorrow something mysterious…

Song(s) of the day: Caro Emerald- Tangled Up / The Lumineers- Ho Hey!

Ho hey there,

Today we’ve got 2 new songs!

The first song has a title which is simular to the first two words of this post.
You might know Mumford and Sons, and if you like them, you might like this group as well.
If you don’t like them, you probably won’t like this song as well…
It are The Lumineers with Ho Hey!

And then there’s a new song of the woman which I find very good…
She’s Dutch, and she has had one song of the day before.
It’s the new song of Caro Emerald, which is named: Tangled Up
I absolutely like this new song!

Song of the day: Dannii Minogue- I Begin To Wonder

Hi there,

When I was walking down the streets I called your name… or at least, that line is in the song of today.
The song of the day is performed by someone who doesn’t only sing, but she is also acting!

I’m talking about a “cover” from a dance song. The result?
Dannii Minogue with I Begin To Wonder!

Tommorrow another song!

Song of the day: Petula Clark- Downtown

Hello there,

This is the new song of the day. Today the song is quite old, but it didn’t loose the attraction and the cozyness.

It’s Petula Clark with Downtown!

Have fun!

Song of the day: Ram Jam- Black Betty

Hey there,

Today the song is not too complicated. The song is originally an American folksong, but it became popular in a hardrock version.

I’m talking about Ram Jam with Black Betty!

Just sing along, whoa Black Betty, Bambalam!
