As Dutchie I always wondered how our (Dutch) music will being heard in other countries with other languages and partly other tastes in music. At the other side I'm wondering if you've never been interested to know which music you would have learned while living in a small country like Holland. Amsterdam is a place many people here at SHTV love, some even wished to live there. So why not to know more about it's pop/rock music? Of course, as music fan you will know bands as our Golden Earring and Shocking Blue, and maybe also Herman Brood & His Wild Romance, Focus, Earth & Fire (no, that band with Wind, that came later and is from the US) and, who knows, even some new wave/punk or nowadays bands. Known with e.g. The Nits? Good for you. There were however so many more, but they were not interested in the US or UK charts or were singing in Dutch, creating by that a wide gap with a foreign audience. That's why I liked the idea to start a thread about great Dutch pop/rock songs of all different decades and to discuss the merits of these. Great to hear or awfull to you? Post it and explain why!
