Here’s a song from 2009 that I just heard a few months ago. It’s really good!:)
I don’t know that much about the artist Hereldeduke but he has made a great remix of the old classic “Walking in the air” from the movie The Snowman. If you’d like to check out something else by him he has also made a cool remix of the song “Angel” by Massive Attack. Anyway, with this song I wish you all a merry Christmas:)
The 21st of December. The world didn’t end as a few lost souls had interpreted it would when marking the end of an old Mayan calendar. Instead we’re just a few days away from Christmas and what better way to celebrate that and the fact that we’re still alive than in the company of charming Gabriella Cilmi?
It’s been a long time since I posted a song here and yesterday I was reminded and asked to put something with a Christmassy feeling here. I thought about it a while ago but somehow I seemed to forget about it. Today I’ll try to remedy that and I think I can even promise that there will be a few more songs before Monday:)
First of all. Today I introduce a new theme for the blog. What do you think about it?:)
Secondly. I tend to forget one category here. That category is ‘Track of the week’ and it’s more that I get caught up in my pictures than not having anything to play for you. Anyway, today that ends with a beautiful piece from a very nice movie we saw the other day. It’s called Intouchables. I don’t want to give anything away but it’s a comedy/drama which leaves you in a good mood and with a warm heart. The music is just as good. Press below, listen and then go watch the movie:)
It’s been a while since I posted anything but pictures from Belgium and even longer since I posted a new “track of the week” here. That changes today because yesterday I went to the cinema and saw a documentary about an American artist called Rodriguez. Who?, you might ask, and having every right to ask that question because before a couple of days ago I hadn’t heard about him either. Well, that certainly changed with this movie.
Rodriguez released two albums. The first in 1970 and the second one in 1971. In the States he sold practically nothing even though critics liked the albums but in South Africa the story was quite different. This was in the height of Apartheid which probably explains something about why Rodriguez got to be so popular with his often political lyrics.
My advice to you is to listen to the song below, check out his albums and go see the movie. It is most excellent and beautiful in all ways.
Yesterday I heard this song which I immediately liked. It was my every intention to post it but as I sat there listening it made me think of one of my absolute favorites. You’ve probably heard it already but it won’t harm to hear it again. It’s the theme song from the movie The Da Vinci code. Crank up the volume and have a nice weekend:)
My heart skipped a beat when seeing this old sign we passed in London. The group S-Express and their music really influenced me as a teenager and was one of the first groups to introduce acid house to a bigger audience. They released the epic track Theme from S-Express in 1988. (Wow, has it been that long?) and followed up with Hey music lover and Mantra for a state of mind in 1989. After that the group lost focus and was later split but please check out the songs. They’re still just as great:)
Chicane has been a favorite group of mine for many, many years and I’ve posted a few songs here before. I must have been dozing a lot lately because I’ve actually missed the latest album which was released last year. I haven’t had time to listen through it all yet and today’s track, Windbreaks, is actually the first song that I heard. It’s quite possible that there are songs just as good and beautiful as this one but I thought that this was one you ought to hear for yourself.
Every single tone send chills down my spine:)
