Round 21 – U

My 171-th entry – bijdrage

My first entry: 28-08-2014 : 15-G

Hi Everybody, a very good- morning / -afternoon / -evening!

Well… Now I run into a problem… Seems that there is no Dutch artist who’s name begins met an U… the first letter in the alphabet for which I can not enter an artist with a suiting name… so what to do?
I did decide at the start of round 21 that I would give every letter music, so after some thought, I’ve chosen a song which is one of my all time favorites purely because the fact that it bears many sweet memories for me. And I presume that you all will agree with me that we should cherisch precious moments and it memories afterwards. Sadly enough I can not show you a video of the group which made this song so special to me so I’ve chosen the original interpretors.

Hi Everybody, a very good- morning / -afternoon / -evening!

For this weeks artist I did not have to think long or hard. Lee Towers is the Dutch artist who fits the T perfectly for me to introducte to you.  He was born on march 23, 1946 and has had lots of hits since his discovery in 1975.
The song I’ve choosen to share with you is probably know, by all of you but from other artists:

Round 21 – S

My 169-th entry – bijdrage / My first entry: 28-08-2014 : 15-G

 

Hi Everybody, a very good- morning / -afternoon / -evening!

Today I want to introduce to you a Dutch singer who was born on august the 2nd in 1941 and passed away on juli 22 1986. He was born in the same province as I did and he was famous for his music in his (and mine) dialect. There are just a few songs of him which were recorded in the English language. I have been a great fan of him every since the first time I heard him, somewhere in my childhood.
Altough many Dutch people don’t understand the dialect he was singing in, I disovered that some of his songs are popular throughout the whole country, quit an achievement I think.
So, for 21-S, I give you 3 songs of Ede Staal: The first one is in English… the second one in my (his) own dialect… the third one is in Dutch… for those of you who want to hear the differences in the three languages:

Round 21 – R

 

Hi Everybody, a very good- morning / -afternoon / -evening!

Today I want to introduce a Dutch Lady who has earned the title of being the greatest Jazz-singing artist The Netherlands has had so far. She was born in Rotterdam on december 21st 1924 and passed away on july 28, 2013. She often performed with her husband who was a wonderful musician as wel. Her name is Rita Reys. I could tell al lot about her but you can all read it HERE

So without further… wishing you lots of joy listening to her… the song I’ve chosen is very appropriate for the time of year and one of my favorites by her also:

Hi Everybody, a very good- morning / -afternoon / -evening!

The letter Q! Quit a difficult one in general. And, as I have discovered (and already guessed to) also in this round of ABC for me since I’ve chosen to do this round with the music-theme.

But….yeeeyyyyyy!!! We the Dutch have had a band which namewas Q65, this band existed in the 1960’s. They started in 1965 and quit in 1971. Altough just a couple of years, they have made several songs, quit an impressive list, curious for it? Take a look HERE

Hi Everybody, a very good- morning / -afternoon / -evening!

Letter P already, time flies, doesn’t it?
In just a couple of week we will move on to round 22 of this wonderful photomeme, I do hope ofcourse that you all will join in too.

This round, as it became ‘mine’, I’ve chosen to honour it in music. Lets see what I can find for P concerning Dutch musicians who (also) perform in the English language so it is pleasant for you to listen to.

So I found Justine Pelmelay, born on september 24th 1958. A Dutch LadySinger with a long and beautiful carreer. In 1988 she took part in The Eurovision Song Contest as a backgroundsinger and the year after that again but this time as the representative of The Netherlands herself. She has performed in many ways, one of which bein part of a Three Degrees-cover-band. In 2009 she became the ambassadour of the Dutch Cystic Fibrosis foundation. In 2012 she was diagnosed with a severe bone marrow disease.

Round 21 – )

My 161-th entry – bijdrage

My first entry: 28-08-2014 : 15-G

Hi Everybody, a very good- morning / -afternoon / -evening!

Today I want to introduce to you: Trijntje Oosterhuis. Born of Febr. 5 1973. Her breakthrough came in the 90-es, being part of a duo with her brother in Total Touch. She has many talents and we often see her on television. As a solo-artist but also, for example, part of Ladies of Soul. She also entered Eurovision Songcontest in 2015. She has worked with many of the greatest artists we all know . There is a lot about her to be found, watched and listened to, not only in Dutch ofcourse.

Beneath a performance of her with a song you all probably know… about the title can be said a lot but thankfully we have no direction in our own hands weather we fall in love or not… those things happen, always unexpectedly and by surprise. Personally I feel… falling in Love is beautiful because Love is the greatest gift one can get.

Round 21 – N

My 160-th entry – bijdrage

My first entry: 28-08-2014 : 15-G

Hi Everybody, a very good- morning / -afternoon / -evening!

So, isn’t this letter challenging? I discover that we don’t have solo-artists in The Netherlands who’s name starts with an N. To be precise; at least not ones who sing in the English language.  So I turned over to search for bands with a name that starts with N and sing also in English.

Nick & Simon is a very famous band of 2 young men who are very succesfull in the Dutch language music. But I remembered that they toured through the USA so I thougt, there must be music in the English language, and yes there is. Their breakthrough came in 2006 after working together with another famous Dutch singer. A certain village in The Netherlands has delivered already many singers and bands who became (still are) very famous but in the Dutch language.

Since I know that almost none of you understand my language, I always try to find something in English so you can understand what they are singing about.

So…. Nick and Simon it is…
