Yeah! Roots Syndicate. One of those one day flies, to have one hit and never return again.
It’s even that bad that they only exist on a Dutch Wikipedia-page, since they were Dutch. For a commercial of an insurances compagny they made a song, which was not ment to be released…
However, it was that popular that it was released, and in the Netherlands it went to number one.
No idea if it was known in other countries, and if not, then it’s about time to listen to this song. It was released in 1993, so it’s 20 years after the release that it’s song of the day! Really like the summer!

And for those interested in the commercial, watch it here. The text appearing in the end is the catchfrase of the compagny: translated it’s Just Call Apeldoorn. Apeldoorn is the place where the insurancescompagny is located.
I quite like this summer song. Not only is it nineties from my birthyear (1997), it’s a cool song, too.
And you can sing along, or at least, I do: Alaaaaaneeeee.
Something like that. But I suppose you don’t want to hear that live. Nobody does.
I am not entirely sure, but I think Wes was one of those one-day flies. One hit and you never hear of them again. Wes had some later singles, but they didn’t end high in the charts.
So, this one hit of Wes, Alane, ended on a good place 14.
Number 14: Wes-Alane
I was listening to one of my favourite podcasts lately, and I heard this song, about which I honestly had forgotten a bit.
However, hearing it again brought some pleasure in my day, and it made me sing it for the rest of the day…
I believe they had one hit only, and that a second single wasn’t much of a success…
It’s Hollywood Beyond with What’s The Colour Of Money?
Tomorrow another song!
