Mia - Gorki (RIP Luc De Vos)

Louise - Gers Pardoel

Sexy als ik dans - Nielson

Dat ik je mis - Maaike Ouboter

Laatste keer - Clouseau

I just did some +- recent (except for Mia) songs I like :)

PS.: And if you're a Frozen fan... Listen to Laat het los or Laat het los! Both karaoke :)

Yeah, how does it go? Oh right...

"Saskia, het konijn met de paarse punk oren

Geluurde Zwarte Piet naar haar hoog groene toren..."

Doesn't get much radio play, so risque... but you're right, It's a catchy hook.

Every year the Dutch can vote to determine the 2000 best songs ever made. The result is called ‘De Top 2000’ and is broadcasted non-stop by Dutch Radio 2 from 12:00 p.m. on the 25th of December to end of the year, so you can listen to the ‘best song ever’ in the last minutes of the year. This year’s list will be released next week (19th of December) but last year’s edition is available here: http://www.radio2.nl/top2000 .

According to this list, the best Dutch songs (ie songs in Dutch) are:

Boudewijn de Groot - Avond: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1YNW7KAIRfE Guus Meeuwis - Brabant: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=myPDjxPeAms Wim Sonneveld - Het Dorp: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K4mQ0Cssfuw (A translation of La Montagne) Ramses Shaffy & Liesbeth List - Pastorale: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K4mQ0Cssfuw Marco Borsato - Dochters: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YvWbitibEGw Stef Bos - Papa: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WvdW0hAytNs Klein Orkest - Over de Muur: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4CY8gpbuhvI Acda en De Munnik - Het Regent Zonnestralen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9se4u8RPc88 Van Dik Hout - Stil in Mij: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lW_m3_0tlfs

Some other Dutch artists that didn’t make it to the top 100: Bløf, Doe Maar, De Dijk, Frank Boeijen, Herman van Veen, Rob de Nijs, The Scene, Tröckener Kecks, Het Goede Doel

My favorite Dutch song, here performed by Wende Snijders - "Mensch, durf te leven." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pPp0I4fA6Lw

And here, again sung by Wende Snijders, in a stripped down version with English subtitles. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3pcmQ-58Oxo

Look at the lyrics of her songs and follow along... It's sometimes hard to understand her because she draws words out for a long time and she also often does this thing where she inserts pauses in weird places, even if the sentence hasn't ended... So it'd help to follow along and look up vocab. :D

Also, if you're anything like me, you MIGHT like this... http://youtu.be/7iZ6GDkQ75o?t=23s

Aplenzusjes are VERY good for vocab and colloquial language. Ik wil altijd in de polonaise lopen. XD

Thanks for bringing the band "Waar is Ken" to my attention. I am currently infatuated with all of their songs and have been listening to them on repeat, almost exclusively. Makes me want to fly across the pond and attend one of their concerts in Belgium. Cheers!

I thought "Het is een nacht" seemed like a good song.

Well, since it is almost Christmas, you might like flappie (Youp van 't Hek, a comedian). Be prepared, though... :P

Lyricwise my favorite Dutch song is 'Sterrenstof' by De Jeugd van Tegenwoordig (Youth of Today), I'm not too much into that genre, but they're brilliant in playing with words.. 'Ja ze is praktisch internagelaktisch' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cNMXSKfWfLQ

The only modern music I can find in Dutch is Hip Hop aha It's interesting to listen to. Would Die Antwoord be not a good choice to listen to since it is actually Afrikaans?
