Song of the day: Hoobastank- The Reason

hoobastank the reason

Let’s rock a bit. I say a bit, since it’s not a typical rock song. It’s more, yeah, I don’t know, actually. Difficult to say. A magical song, that’s what it is. You can’t put your finger on it, it was a big hit, and it’s GOOD. That’s what it is. Enjoy

Hoobastank- The Reason

Song of the day: TWB ft. Anouck- Dancing In The Dark

I got an e-mail about one and a half week ago, from someone who wanted to promote two new artists. I’m willing to feature, since it’s really good music. On Friday the other song will be featured, but let’s start with the first song. The title of the song got me thinking: oh no, not a cover! I should not have worried, since it’s a completely new track. I guess not many people know the band, but if all their music is like this song, they have got some hit potential, according to me. They have the sound from the eighties synthesizer pop groups, with a touch of the present. The song is a real disco song, and you just can’t sit and listen. Well, I can’t. Check out this new music, namely:

The Writers Block ft. Anouck- Dancing In The Dark

 

NEW: Coldplay-Atlas

Well, since there are already some songs of the day waiting in the coming days, including more new music, this will be just a tip. I’m a big fan of Coldplay, I like all their albums, and as soon as I got notice that there was a new song I wanted to hear it. I don’t have any regrets of doing so, because it is GOOD, no, better, it’s FANTASTIC.

Give it a listen, because it’s worth it: Coldplay- Atlas

Song of the day: Buena Vista Social Club- Chan Chan

Okay, take it easy! It’s Saturday, so let’s relax a bit with some summer melodies!
I never understood the lyrics, but I didn’t feel the need to. It just was a good song! And actually, it was their only big hit…
It’s Chan Chan by the Buena Vista Social Club!

Vote for the Summer Song of the Day Top 20!>>>>

Song of the day: Wham!- Club Tropicana

wham-fantastic

Looking in my list with songs of the day, I only found a Christmas song by them, Last Christmas.
However, they made so much more good music. On another album, Make It Big, there are some big hits like Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go and Freedom.
On this album not a lot of big hits, but their summer hit is on there!

I’m of course talking about Club Tropicana, the fifth song of the album!

Well, vote for the Summer Song of the day Top 20, since you can!

Song of the day: The Blues Brothers- Everybody Needs Somebody To Love

Oh, the soundtrack of the Blues Brothers! What a good soundtrack, and what a movie!
In this movie there were certainly a lot of car crashes, and maybe it was the highest number of cars destroyed in a movie.
Anyway, the movie is brilliant, and I chose a song that everyone knows from the movie, with some good dancing:

The song of the day is Everybody Needs Somebody To Love!

And if you don’t know the movie, watch it: it’s fun!

Song of the day: Billy Idol- Hot In The City

Billy_Idol-Greatest_Hits-Frontal

The song of the day has two different music videos, from which the second had a bit of resistence, since it showed his girlfriend nailed to a cross.
However, the song is very good, and that is what matters! To me, at least.

For the people to who the video does matter: the link goes to a video with only music.

Yes, it’s Hot in the City! And that’s not my city: I call 15 C not hot…

Song of the day: Culture Club- Do You Really Want To Hurt Me?

Culture_Club_-_Greatest_Hits

Whilst listening to the radio, a song came by and I thought: this is the song of saturday!
It’s a song from the early eighties, 1982. Since eighties music = good music, this is a very good song.
The group had more hits that this one, and one of the best known is of course Karma Chameleon.
However, that’s not my choice.

Do you remember the song Do You Really Want To Hurt Me?

Tomorrow another song!

Song of the day: Phil Collins- Sussudio

Phil-Collins_No-Jacket-Required1

Of course there are lots of good albums, and a lot of good artists which can be in this place. Therefore, I have enough material.
If you have a request, fill in the contact form, then I can consider that artist to have a song of the day!

Well, this is an album by Phil Collins, and it is called No Jacket Required. It’s in my eyes on of his better albums, and it certainly contains one of my favourite songs!
In this song, he seems to be stummering, but it’s just part of the song. Which one would that be?
Of course, it’s Sussudio!

Song of the day: Eric Clapton- Tears In Heaven

EricClaptonUnplugged

What a beautiful album is this. Of course, Eric Clapton is a very good musician, but some of these songs are really good, or even better on this album.
I think Layla sounds beautiful on this album, but it isn’t the song of the day.

That is another song, and what would that be?
A bit too obvious, but it is a very good song: Tears In Heaven.
