Ruben Block (Triggerfinger) surprised friend and enemy last year with his sweet dreams remake, but this “follow rivers” cover appears to be the next big thing in Europe.
Available via itunes
A-Ha, “Take On Me” in a North Korean style…

The belgians are back with some new chocolate for you. This time it is called “Stromae” with a song called “Alors on danse”. The song was posted on youtube in november 2009. The song was probably discovered and hyped by @stubru but in the meantime the song is doing extremely well all over Europe. Currently “Alors on danse” is number one in France, Switzerland, Belgium, Netherlands and Denmark….
With over 200 version the collection will never be complete but you can find an overview via the Hallelujah collection
André agrees you cannot add something to the “hallelujah” versions from Jeff Buckley, Leonard Cohen, Damien Rice. Nevertheless a unique cover by André van Duin.
Belgian music formation “Dez Moma” performs in “De wereld draait door”, a talkshow hosted by Matthijs Van Nieuwkerk on VARA (Dutch TV station) .
Despite the commotion about the Alexandra Burke version of Hallelujah, Natalia & Gabriel Rios recorded a new version of the Hallelujah-song for the 1212 – Help Haiti charity show on Belgian public and commercial TV stations (één & VTM)
With competition from Jeff Buckley, Leonard Cohen, Damien Rice and a lot of others, this version may not necessarily pass the test of time. (Nevertheless a strong performance by Gabriel Rios). But more importantly all profits will be donated to Haiti charity .
Buy the song to support Haiti (not yet available on itunes – 21- Jan 2010)
