Song of the day: Long John Baldry- Morning Dew

long-john-baldry-walk-me-out-in-the-morning-dew-emi-america

Every December, from Christmas till the new year, I listen to the Top 2000, a list with the best songs ever made. A time to hear all great songs again and to discover new songs. And that’s exactly what happened. I heard a new song, which grabbed me and couldn’t let me go after it had ended. It started with the intro, which was great, and then he started singing: wow, what a song! Just listen and be convinced:

Song of the day: John Legend- Made To Love

John-Legend-Made-to-Love-2013-1500x1500

I was sort of surprised to hear the new single by John Legend. He made a lot of good music, but this song was a bit shocking. I never expected such a powerful, almost electric song from him. But, after hearing it a few times, the song became better and better and better. So good, that I thought: let’s make it song of the day. Of course I want you to enjoy:

John Legend- Made To Love

Song of the day: Imagine Dragons- On Top Of The World

What a good year it was for new bands! And in particular this band is one of my favourites: we want more, I would say. What a nice song it was this year, used in a commercial, I believe… So for today, enjoy:

Imagine Dragons- On Top Of The World

Song of the day: Ellie Goulding- Burn

I must say we’ve heard quite some new artists and sounds this year. Of course we’ve heard about things we never heard about (we’ll come to that later…). One of those artists we’ve heard about this year is Ellie Goulding. Suddenly she was there with this big hit, which of course is a very good song. Enjoy:

Ellie Goulding- Burn

Song of the day: PW- Here With You

Here With You-04 (1)

NEW MUSIC!

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

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:

Song of the day: Bakermat- Vandaag

bakermat

Sometimes you hear a song which grabs you: you know that you find it very good, you want to know more! I had that one, two weeks ago when listening to the radio. I heard a (relatively) new song on the radio, it was the first time I heard it, and I thought: wow! This is it. This is going to be a hit, and I want his album. It stopped there, there was no album… not yet.
So you start googling around: more music by this artist, where does he get his inspiration from, etc, etc, etc.

I found his YouTube-channel, listened to the songs that were on there, and decided to buy his album as soon as it was there.

The strange thing about his music is that it is new, but it is familiar, too. It has to do with the influences. Jazz, blues, Nat King Cole, to mention a few.
Those are the things I know. Those are the things I like. And the saxophones in his songs, I like those, too.

To give him an extra impulse (which he maybe doesn’t need), I give the honour of the song of the day to his song Vandaag. Because it was the first thing I heard of him. And because I hope he will make a lot of good music in future. And that he will make a record on CD, since I don’t download…

Song of the day: Depeche Mode- Enjoy The Silence

Hi there,

The new song of the day is here! A very good song, made by a band which has released a new album lately!
That album was called Delta Machine, and it sounds marvelous! Their older hits are also very good, I really recommend their albums if you don’t have them yet!

The song of the day is one of the older songs, and if you didn’t know already, the band is called Depeche Mode.
The song of the day is called Enjoy The Silence.

Tomorrow TWO new songs!

And please vote for the Song of the day top 50!

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: Rigby- Earth Meets Water / Train- Mermaid

The last new songs for March…
Next week it’s April!

The first new song is made by a band which I like very much. And actually, this band is made by Holland…
Their first song was popular in the Netherlands, and after that, they became popular in the rest of the world.
I’m talking about Train with their new song Mermaid!

For the second song I don’t really have an introduction, since the music says all!
All I can say is that it is a very good song!
It’s Rigby with Earth Meets Water!

And please vote for the Song of the day top 50, since I don’t have that much votes!

Song of the day: Alain Clark- Back In My World / Anouk- Birds

Hi there,

Today two new songs of the day, both from Holland!

Firstly, the new single of Alain Clark. It’s really a good single!
I can’t say a lot more about it than that it is very good song.
It’s Alain Clark with Back In My World!

And the second song is our song for the Eurovision Song Contest…
Anouk with Birds!
Some say it’s a bad song, some say it’s really good and we will win…
I don’t know. At least it’s a good single!

That were the songs for today, tomorrow another song!

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: Anastacia- Left Outside Alone

Hi there,

Today some power! After Alanis Morissette, this is one of my favourite singers, too.
This woman really has a powerful voice, and I like this song so much!

Hope you like it, too:

Anastacia with Left Outside Alone.

Tomorrow two new songs, in a new month!

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(s) of the day: Kensington- Home Again / Emeli Sandé- Clown

Hello there,

Today two songs, and both are new!

The first song is made by a Dutch band, and they have named themselves after a part of London.
They are busy since 2005, but their new single is really good!
It’s Kensington with Home Again!

The second song is made by a singer from Scotland. She is busy since 2009, and has had a few big hits in the past year.
The latest hit was together with Labyrinth.
Yes, it’s Emeli Sandé with Clown!

Next week I’ve two other selections for you!

Song(s) of the day: Miss Montreal- Giving Up On You / M.K.T.O.- Thank You

Hello there,

I have some new songs for you!

The first song I know already for some weeks, but I was still waiting for it to be a hit.
And that lasts and lasts, and still I couldn’t find it in the hit charts.
So here is it on my blog, hoping to become a hit: M.K.T.O. with Thank You!

The second song is made by a Dutch artist. She is really good, and even better if you keep in mind that she stummers when she speaks!
Luckily, she doesn’t stummer when she sings, so she makes really good music. It’s Miss Montreal with Giving Up On You.
And do I like these songs! Wow!

Song of the day: Wildstylez feat. Niels Geusebroek- Year Of Summer

Hello everybody,

I have an older new song for you. It is already some weeks popular, so you might know it.

The song is really cool. It has to do something with summer, and I think that it is absolutely good!
I’m talking about Year of Summer by the Wildstylez featuring Niels Geusebroek.

I hope you share my opinion and that you like it too!
