Maaike Ouboter – “Wattendag” (Cotton Wool Day).

Hi people! 🙂

I don’t think there’s been much music in Dutch on my blog so far, despite Dutch is one of my favourite languages that I plan on learning at some point. I guess there’s only something by the Flemish singer Hannelore Bedert and perhaps something in Dutch by Cornelis Vreeswijk. But the truth is I don’t listen to much of Dutch language music. Maybe it’s because they do so much of their music in English, I guess more even than Swedes, maybe it’s that I haven’t searched enough, or that perhaps I don’t feel it as much as I do Welsh music for example. But I like this artist. I hardly understand anything from her lyrics beyond some single words or phrases that I can figure out via either English or Swedish or my bits of German, I’m not even perfectly sure if I got the title right, but I like the way her music sounds.
