Song of the day: Jovanotti- L’Ombelico Del Mundo

jovanotti- l'ombelico del mondo

An Italian singer-songwriter, who had his breakthrough in the nineties. This song was one of his biggest hits, it charted in 1995. It especially does good in the summer, because it has the sound of summer in it. His name, Jovanotti, is derived from the plural form of giovanotto, which is giovanotti. The word itself means young man. This man has done almost everything in the musical world, ranging from classical music to funk. This song is one of my favourites. Enjoy

A relaxed song today, just because temperatures are like summer! It gives me a good feeling if I pull open the curtains and the sun is shining! This song on the radio, what could a man ask for more?
And if it’s like this, you know: what a delight that it is summer! Yeah!

Need more information? Just play the song I would say, try my feeling and your whole day is good (no guarantee given)

Song of the day: Roger Sanchez- Another Chance

Roger_Sanchez_-_Another_Chance_single

Oh yeah! Some songs you hear, forget a while, then you hear them again, and every time you think: I should buy it on CD. And then you forget it again.
It’s actually my story with this song… but now it’s on a list of songs which I want on CD.
Why do I want it? Firstly, it’s a great dance track. Secondly, it makes me happy, thirdly: the tune sticks in my mind and keeps playing for one day…

And it sounds sunny, so reason enough for Roger Sanchez to be song of the day! Enjoy Another Chance (the long version, because I can’t get enough!!

Song of the day: Daft Punk- One More Time

daft-punk-discovery

Yesterday I was talking to a friend, who had some ideas for the Song of the day. Some of them were good, but will be put on in September, because now it’s time for the summer!
When we were talking we came to one of the strangest electronic music duo’s of now. There are a lot of DJ’s active who make hits, but those two are a little bit more weird than the rest.
I mean: normal DJ’s don’t wear helmets while performing… we actually didn’t see them without, until earlier this month… just Google!
Their music reminds me mostly of Kraftwerk, the finders of this genre, as I believe… they started in the 1970s, so that is very early!
Later, I will make an article dedicated to Kraftwerk, but firstly, let’s enjoy the sound of Daft Punk’s One More Time!

Song of the day: The Power Station- Some Like It Hot

Powerstation_albumcover

Oh yes! The debute album of the Power Station! Do you remember? 1985, and the big hit: Some Like It Hot!
I like that song, it’s really good! And it says something about a lot of persons, who like the summer (like me).
So listen to that song, because it some like it hot, some like it when the heat is on…

Song of the day: Duke- So In Love With You

Relax a bit with these sunny, relaxed sounds of Duke. Or is it dance?
Coming from the nineties, this was his first single when he left a band called One Hand One Heart. It was a big dance hit, and it now is the song of the day!

Enjoy So In Love With You!

Song of the day: Eros Ramazotti- Ma Che Bello Questo Amore

eros ramazotti eros

The album Eros by Eros Ramazotti. Some big hits on there, like Cose Della Vita (together with Tina Turner), Musica É (with Andrea Bocelli), but the song of the day is another big hit.
Of course it’s Italian, and mostly Italian = sun! Hot temperatures! Summer! Happy! etc.

This song sounds sunny, happy, and summerlike: it’s Ma Che Bello Questo Amore. I’ve no idea what it means (something like I question love?), but it sounds good.

And vote for the Summer Song of the Day Top 20! You can vote by clicking on the sun >>>>

Song of the day: Wham!- Club Tropicana

wham-fantastic

Looking in my list with songs of the day, I only found a Christmas song by them, Last Christmas.
However, they made so much more good music. On another album, Make It Big, there are some big hits like Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go and Freedom.
On this album not a lot of big hits, but their summer hit is on there!

I’m of course talking about Club Tropicana, the fifth song of the album!

Well, vote for the Summer Song of the day Top 20, since you can!

Song of the day: The Mavericks- Dance The Night Away

mavericks dance the night away

Oh… a lot of clouds today. However, I don’t mind, because the temperature is still right. And hopefully the sun will creep out some later…
I have just heard this record on the radio, and I have not heard it in a long time! But now I’ve heard it, I remembered and immediately it’s song of the day!

Some sort of country, but I love the record Dance The Night Away by the Mavericks!

Voting for the Summer Song of the Day Top 20 starts tomorrow!

Song of the day: Ricky Martin- Livin’ La Vida Loca

Livin-la-Vida-Loca-by-Ricky-Martin

Oohh… the summer is coming. And that means: summer music. The whole summer long.
This is a summer hit from the late nineties, and still it is sunny. So let the summer begin…
So, okay… it’s time for Ricky Martin as song of the day, with Livin’ La Vida Loca!

From Monday on, you can vote for the Summer song of the day top 20!

Song of the day: Ritchie Valens- La Bamba

Ritchie-Valens-La-Bamba-298216

More summer, sunny rock ‘n roll on its way. What a record!
Later this record was covered by Los Lobos, but I prefer this record, since it’s the original.
Really rock ‘n roll, it sounds summer, it’s Ritchie Valens with La Bamba!
Later he died in the big plane crash, which was later known as “the day the music died”. This phrase of course comes from American Pie by Don McLean, who saw the people in the plane as the basement for the music.

Mmm… summer is coming now! And some inspiration for a new list, too…
Maybe tomorrow more about that.

Song of the day: Righeira- Vamos A La Playa

Wow! Sunshine! Warmth! Temperatures around the 25 degrees! Yeah!
And then it is time for the song which I saved for the first sunny, summer day, today.

The ultimate summer classic: Righeira with Vamos A La Playa!

Song of the day: Jan & Dean- Little Old Lady From Pasadena

jan and dean surf city

Mmm… the sun! I love the sun and the summer, when I know it is coming!

Therefore some surf rock today, by Jan & Dean, a duo which was very popular in the last century.
Well, which one sounds like really good vibrations? Okay, I choose The Little Old Lady From Pasadena!

Let’s stay in the sunny mood: tomorrow more!

Song of the day: Electric Light Orchestra- Mr. Blue Sky

Hello again,

A new song of the day is waiting for you!

It’s a happy song, made by an orchestra. It was written on a mountain, it was foggy for the whole week, and all of a sudden the sun comes through!
The song was remastered in 2012, but I still like the old version better.

It’s ELO (electric light orchestra) with Mr. Blue Sky.

Get happy!
