Stand By Me (Music)

When Julie and I first got together, whenever we went out to the city center of Amsterdam a guy would be playing music on the Leidseplein. Every time we saw him, we stayed and listened, even though he only ever played one song as far as we know. That song was “Stand by Me”. The song got utterly stuck in our head for a long time, and even till this day, if one of us gets something stuck in our head the other hums “Stand By Me” as a joke. So when I saw this video, it really brought back memories. Very cool project, “Playing for Change” . Make sure you watch the whole thing.

Bruce Springsteen concert rocked (Music)

Julie and I went to a Bruce Springsteen concert last night in the Gelredome, a soccer stadium with excellent acoustics. We’re not especially big fans of Springsteen but we’ve always wanted to see one of his concerts. We ended up with awesome seats and had a great evening. He performed with his band “The E Street Band”. What is it anyways with concerts that they don’t want you to take pictures. They were haunting everyone with cameras, even useless phone cameras. Seems a bit silly to me. Those things cant make photos worth a damn, as the below image shows.
