Swinging saturdays is a musical meme hosted by Ice Cold Passion, to share our passion for music. The goal is to make a top 5 (or Top 10) for whatever genre or artist you like or get creative and share a theme based music top 5. For example a bookish soundtrack, funny songs, song to listen to on a rainy day top 5.High time for a new Spotify ABC, this week starring, H.
So let's see what we have here: Ha Ha Tonka, Häxxan, Heideroosjes, HIM, Hot Hot Heat, The Hot Sprockets, The Howlin, Hozier, Hurts.
Oh my so many favorites here! However am I going to choose only 5 of these? This is going to be hard, there is a lot of nostalgic bands here for me like HIM, Hot Hot Heat and the Heideroosjes. These are bands I loved for years and years. There is also a mystery here something I don't remember why I am following so I have to give that one a listen. Let's do this!
Häxxan ~ no. 1991Häxxan sounds like some kind of kick as metal band in my ears, I can tell you, it is definitely not a metal band. It is more a indie rock band. The kind of band I like, it kind of reminds me of Shame, Mozes and The First Born, and Indian Askin. I like their sounds and I remember when I first found them I listened to them for days. It was my new favorite of the moment.
Hurts ~ SomebodyI haven't talked about Hurts for the longest time. I was a big fan of the songs Wonderful Life, Silver Lining, which are both from their 2011 album "Hapiness". I haven't actually listened to anything new yet so I decided to do just that before I wrote this Swinging Saturdays, and I must say I like their new work. Or newish since the newsest I could find was released in 2020. They have taken a bit of a different road with these new ones, it is a bit more cheerful. The album I was just talking about is a little dramatic and sometime a little depressing. So I am going with a newer song, Somebody. If you know Hurts, let me know what you think of this.
Heidenroosjes ~ I'm Not Deaf (I'm Just Ignoring You)I just bought myself a beautiful album by the Heideroosjes. They are Dutch punk band and they have been arround since the early 90's. The mainly sing in Dutch, but they have also released a couple of albums in English as well. The album I have gotten is a combination of Dutch and English songs, it is a re-release of their first album, on limited edition yellow vinyl. Me and Martijn went shopping last week and I gotten 4 limited edition vinyls in this round and spend way too much money, but hey you only live once right? So yeah the Heideroosjes, what song to pick? Let's go with something I know from the album I just bought, which is I'm Not Deaf (I'm Just Ignoring You). I hope you enjoy.
The Howlin' ~ This RoadSo this is a suprise I am not sure how I found this, who it came to be in my Spotify list but, I kind of like it. It sound pretty good! Good thing I am doing this Spotify ABC or else I would have forgotten about it completely!
Hozier (ft. Karen Cowley) ~ In A WeekWe are ending this list with one of my favorite singer-songwriters out there, yes of course I am talking about Hozier, his music is just so damn good. I can just lie on the couch with my eyes closed being swept away by his voice. It is dreamy, deep, dark and just what I sometimes want to hear. This is just what I mean the whole setting of the video, perfect!
I hope you enjoyed this top 5 Do you have any suggestion for me?
