Nostalgia at it’s best in the first episode of for the Love of Music. The bandana’s, sunglasses and extravagant outfits to be taken off the shelf, because the artists open the music box with songs of The Dinky Toys. Songs stored in the memory, and everyone loudly can sing along. Singer Marc Diericx going for decades as Coco by life. But why actually? And what does fashion designer Dirk Bikkembergs with his tough look to create?
When the group decided to take up residence in the stunning Gran Villa Rosa, their place of residence during Love for Music, the mouths were open. “The Taj Mahal there is nothing against”, according to Sharon. The discovery brings the atmosphere right into the group and the artists quickly learn each other’s small habits know. “I have Helmut 5 minutes do not know-singing. We search for the off button,” laughs John.
But the extensive warming of Helmut seems to have effect is not to be missed when he evening turns out with their own version of Love’s Embrace. Of course, not without first pouring with a typical Lotti-sauce. Sarah and Gert Bettens let their ears drop on a classic: a Test Or Times. “This can on a K’s Choice album”, says the. Jasper surprised with a subdued version of My Day Will Come, the doorbraakhit of The Dinky Toys. “The song is very universal,” he says. “Everyone has ever thought: my day will come…” Silvy throws it with Declaracion De Amor about an other bow. She has just as Coco a love for Jamaican rhythms and surprises with a sweet reggae version.
Niels has in the repertoire of Cocojr. the ideal successor for his summer hit Skwon Girl. “I had promised myself to get everything singing in Dutch, but I’m not held”, he confesses. Niels named Out In The Streets in order to I ’t Stroate and sings about what happened to his ‘skwon maiden’ has happened. Sharon gets finally out all the stops for her cover of Just What I Need Tonight. A cover in which the hair on Coco’s arm is perpendicular.
Cocojr. closes his episode with a tribute to his idol and friend Luc De Vos. “November 29th 2014 is a day that I will never go forgotten. Luc De Vos died, it felt unreal. I do not do anything rather than outside the lines colors and Luc was also someone who is always just outside the lines colored. I therefore Sometimes Ask A Man chosen. A tribute to a fine man who we will always continue to miss it.”
