Song of the day: Iggy Pop- The Passenger

iggy_pop___the_passenger

If there is a melody which is iconical and which I would recognize immediately, it’s this melody. I heard it a few weeks ago when watching a show on the TV, made by one of my favourite comedians. She’s called Paulien Cornelisse and used the tune of The Passenger as start of the show. When looking what could be song of the day, this returned to me and I thought: why not? So for today, we enjoy

Song of the day: Four Tops- Loco In Acapulco

Some songs come around every summer, but are 1) not played on the radio in other seasons (or I miss them) and 2) nevertheless good.
This is one of these songs. And that’s quite strange, since it was a song made in 1988, so it is quite recently if you compare it with their other songs, which are all made around the sixties/seventies.
So what went wrong? I couldn’t tell: it isn’t the melody, not the text (partly written by Phil Collins), and not the purpose as soundtrack.
Nothing seems wrong, but you only hear it in summer. However, it’s a perfect summer song, so we should enjoy it now…

Enjoy

Summer Song of the Day #5: Ryan Paris- Dolce Vita

Simplicity makes things more beautiful. In most cases this is true, more is less…
And in this song it is used very well. No difficult texts, let the music do its part. The result is a very good song with an easy melody which sticks to mind, and brings up the summer!
I must say that the song sticked to mind when I was in Rome last week. I was sitting by the Trevi Fountain, an ice cream in my hand, and this song playing in my mind… lovely!

Song of the day: Johnny And The Hurricanes- Red River Rock

Ah! I like this record, although I don’t own it…
That’s because of two things: Firstly the song of the day, which sounds sunny, and you get the feeling that summer is coming. Furthermore, the record is quite impressive, with the melody. I think it’s very good.

Secondly, but that is my own strange thing… I like VW-busses, although I have problems getting in them (I’m round the 1.95 metres…)
All in all, more surf music: Enjoy Johnny & The Hurricanes with Red River Rock!

Song of the day: Coldplay- Peter Allen- I Go To Rio

Hi there,

Here’s the answer which you want to have! By which artist was Coldplay inspired in making the melody of Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall?
The song is wellknown, and if you listen closely, you will hear the melody!

It’s Peter Allen with I Go To Rio!

Tomorrow another song, and please vote for the Song Of The Day Top 50!

Song of the day: The Sacados- Ritmo De La Noche

Hi there,

The new song of the day is waiting for you!
And you know a bit of the melody already, if you know Coldplay’s Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall.
The people who knew this song, said when they heard Every Teardrop is a waterfall: We know this song!

It’s based on the melody from The Sacados with Ritmo De La Noche!

But Coldplay said: We don’t know this song! But we admit that we had some inspiration…

And that song is the song of saturday!

Please vote for the song of the day top 50, since I don’t have enough votes!

Song of the day: Bee Gees- You Win Again

Hello everyone,

Here’s the new song of the day!

It’s a song from the eighties. The song is made by a band which returned in the eighties, and part of the success in the eighties comes because of the movie “Saturday Night Fever”.
You don’t know? It’s quite obvious, I hope. Of course I’m talking about the Bee Gees, who made the soundtrack for this movie.
However, the song of the day is not from this soundtrack. It’s called You Win Again.

It took a month to make this song. Barry Gibb wrote the melody, and his brother Maurice made the drums sound special.
A year later, in 1988, Andy Gibb died.

Tomorrow another song!
