In case you didn't know yet, I'm a music lover. Couldn't live without it. And I'm also dutch. And dutch people can be quite chauvinistic at times. Therefor I'm now going to attempt to cook up a list of recommended dutch songs and artists for non-dutchies to try out and enjoy. Happy searching, downloading and listening.

Rock/Pop

Anouk - Nobody's wife
Golden Earring - Radar love / When the lady smiles / Twilight zone
George Baker Selection - Little green bag [featured in Reservoir Dogs]
Kane - Rain down on me / Something to say
Racoon - Happy Family / Feels like flying
Krezip - I would stay / (I want you) out of my bed
Total touch - Touch me here / Somebody else's lover

Dance

2 Unlimited - Get Ready For This
DJ Tiesto - Traffic
2 Brothers on the 4th floor - Dreams
Atlantic Ocean - Waterfall
Dj Jean - Love come home

Other

Beef - Late night sessions (reggae/ska)
Within Temptation - Ice Queen / Stand my ground (gothic rock)
Ilse de Lange - I'd be yours / World of hurt (country)

That's all I can think of right now. Other dutchies are free to add to the list.

In totally unrelated adult news: Don't leave home without it.

And Sin City rocks.

I'm not going to ask who sent you to THE big girls' toy store on the 'net... OK, I AM going to. And what were you looking for? Hmm?

I'm sorry that the answer is not as shocking as you hoped. Clicked on a link from someone's LJ that said "I want this". It lead to a doublesided dildo that could be used in a strapon harness. That's how I ended up on the site. Clicked around a bit in the 'deluxe' category and found the kit. Made me grin.

I'd add "Mother Earth" to the Within Temptation field :D

I found your journal in searching for a song i heard recently and thought it might be worth commenting
I love music, and i heard a friend play the song, but i can't remember the name of the song or the artist, and haven't seen her since, but in googling for it i found here so here goes ...
Theres a song sung in dutch, probably by a girl, which talks about a couple just running off one night, then spending the night in a hotel together.
it was played acoustically and sounds like it should have been played like that but i am not sure.
When she sang it she also translated some for us, but all i can remember of the translated lyrics is something like
"the sort of night that only happens in dreams" and "the light is coming through the curtains"

do you have any ideas ?
(also, checking out the rest, already like Anouk, and love Within Temptation )

Hey there! Funny to see how you stumbled upon my LJ.
The song you're looking for is called "Het is een nacht" and sung by Guus Meeuwis. He wrote the song for his girlfriend as sort of a private thank you for the fact that she 'kidnapped' him and gave him the night of his life. Even though the song was very personal, he decided to play it one night in his favorite hang-out and before he knew it, it was recorded and went straight to 1 in the charts, staying there for weeks and weeks on end.

If you need more help with anything musical, just ask :)
