Melancholiedjes, the Belgian and Dutch compilation

If you dont speak Dutch this comp won't mean a lot to you, but the reason why I made it is because of a request I got from Boebis from the French blog Berceuse electrique. He asked me to write a contribution for his blog, about music that is not known in the rest of the world. He invited me to write an entry about my two favorites songs sung in Dutch. One should be a recent one, the other one should be a classic.
I can assure you that's a tough job.
I've been thinking for weeks and I finally made up my mind. I won't tell you what I came up with. You can read about it as soon as Boebis has translated my text and published it. But first I've got to write it...
In the meanwhile you can listen to these 16 kind of sad songs. If there's ever a comp on this blog that gave me constantly goosebumps, it's this one.

Enjoy the music, and have a nice weekend...

    Can't wait to listen to this. I have Dutch 60s rock tunes but almost nothing else (except favorite band Bettie Serveert). And from Belgium, almost nothing. Thanks for giving this so much thought and effort.
