30 Day Music Meme: Day 13

Day 13: A song you sing to in the shower

Although I usually take my showers in silence, I suppose I do have a small repertoire of songs that I will go through occasionally, either while attending to chores or taking a bath. They have been stuck on a loop in my memory for a long time, and with one or two exceptions, most are in Dutch. Which means today's entry is likely going to be incomprehensible to anyone not conversant in the language, so I'll give a brief outline of what the song entitled Malle Babbe is about: a young man comments on the hypocrisy of the upstanding, well-to-do burghers of his community who seek out the company and services of a particular prostitute on weeknights but shun her in church on Sunday, and dreams of the day he can take her down the aisle and by doing so, shame them into acknowledging her for once.

Day 14- A song you like hearing live
Day 15- A song people wouldn’t expect you to like
Day 16- A song that holds a lot of meaning to you
Day 17- A song that annoys you
Day 18- A song you have as your ringtone/want to be your ringtone
Day 19- A song you’re currently obsessed with
Day 20- A song from a new album you are waiting for to come out
Day 21- A song you want to dance to at your wedding
Day 22- A song that would be the theme song to a TV show about your life
Day 23- A song that makes you angry
Day 24- A cover song
Day 25- An acoustic song you love
Day 26- A song by your favorite band
Day 27- A song you make fun of
Day 28- A song that reminds you of your boyfriend/girlfriend (if you don’t have one, make one up :])
Day 29- A song currently stuck in your head
Day 30- A song that you haven’t listened to in awhile

I sang a jazzy "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" the other day. I watch too much Glee, and I'd just seen it there. Heh. Very suggestible.

I'll often start on Somewhere Over The Rainbow too, but I keep forgetting my voice is really too low and husky for it.

Oh I like that! Nope, didn't understand a word but thanks for the explanation. Like his voice and the melody.

I love this meme because I am discovering and/or rediscovering a wealth of good music from my friends.

Yes, it's a great meme for finding out how much diversity there is in music and musical taste, isn't it?

Rob de Nijs is one of the fixtures of Dutch popular music. He started out as Holland's answer to Cliff Richard in the 50s, and is still performing up and down the country 50 years later. And I always liked his voice, too ;-).
