Aw, thanks for this! This song was on the radio a lot when I worked in Belgium for a couple of months... back in 2005! I love listening to it in the car :)

I've noticed the Dutch translation for Twitter titles the "What’s happening" section in the sidebar as "Wat er gebeurt", but that is marked wrong here. What's the difference?
