The 15th compilationIf you're not Belgian you probably won't know the first song on this 15th compilation. And if you don't speak Dutch you won't understand it either. It is about packing your belongings (like books and records) in boxes, and about stumblimg down the stairs to load everything in a removal truck. It's a story about leaving the beautiful city of Brussels, and looking back on ten years of your life... This song moves me because I recognize a lot. "Tien jaar" is almost biographical to me. It's a song that gives me goosebumps. Listen to it.
The Dutch entry is trumpet player Saskia Laroo, with the powerful "Spin".
Enjoy the music, and have a nice weekend..
