Song of the day: Deep Purple- Smoke On The Water

On the fourth of December 1971, there was a fire in a casino in Montreux. Read the rest of this entry

Song of the day: Foreigner- That Was Yesterday

Foreigner - Agent Provocateur - Front

Above you see the picture of the album Agent Provocateur from Foreigner.
It’s an album with a story. All the songs are about a spy, who takes a look at life.
If you listen to the album, there are different emotions in the album. The album also contains the biggest hit for Foreigner, I Want To Know What Love Is.
However, that is not the song of the day. The song of the day is the follow up of I Want To Know What Love Is, namely That Was Yesterday.

(You might think what happened to the new songs of the day. Unfortunately, I’m not doing that anymore, since it was a lot of work.)

 

Song of the day: Peter Schilling- Major Tom (The Major Tom Story)

Hi there,

Today a whole story!

Firstly, you might remember that one record made by David Bowie. A very good record, and it was called Space Oddity. In this song, you hear the story of Major Tom, who is going into space with a rocket, and everything seems to go fine, but then there is no contact anymore between earth and Major Tom. Nobody knows what happened to Major Tom, but probably he died.

However, we actually don’t know who Major Tom really was. In another record of David Bowie, Ashes to Ashes, Major Tom is no longer an austronaut, but he is a junkie.

But there was more: Peter Schilling gave us more information in his record Major Tom. It’s the same story as in David Bowie’s Space Oddity, but at least we hear a final message. And coming back to the song of the day, Major Tom (the German version) is the song of the day, and his message is for you to find out!

Tomorrow another record as song of the day!
