Here comes a statement: I’m not a big fan of rap songs. The rap songs I like are from the eighties, when rap was just getting started. These were songs like the Holiday Rap (MC Miker G & Deejay Sven) and Rapper’s Delight (The Sugarhill Gang). However, this particular song is a song which I think is quite good. It’s not the screamed texts of some rappers, not a text which is insulting, just a song which is fresh, a new sound in rap. If it all would be like this, things would be much better! I think this artist, PW, has got a future with some hits, perhaps…
PW- Here With You
Mmm… remember MC Miker G and DJ Sven? Yes, from the Holiday Rap. Part of the Holiday Rap was based on the song of today. To be precise, otherwise I get e-mails, it was the chorus.
I really don’t know what to say about it, since everyone knows the tune, because it’s one of his most famous songs. It’s relaxing, so enjoy
Cliff Richard & The Shadows- Summer Holiday
Do you remember… this record? It was a big hit in the 1980s, 1986 to be precise. A remix of Madonna’s Holiday, with some lyrics by Cliff Richard, and the rest was made by them, I believe.
It was remixed by no one less than… Ben Liebrand! And there is something else nice about this song: Deejay Sven is now DJ Sven, part of the team of Somertijd, the radio show I listen to in the afternoon, and on Saturday night he has a programme with a lot of dance classics, and who makes mixes for that programme? Yes, Ben Liebrand!
Well, it was a big hit back then, and it’s nice to listen to now, so the song of the day is: The Holiday Rap! (The clip was broadcasted on the BBC, but it reached the top 10 in a lot of countries)
