WONGIE COUNTRY FOLK DUET OF THE WEEK: the common linnets - calm after the storm
the common linnets - calm after the storm
firstly the fact that this catchy subdued country folk tune was selected to represent the netherlands in the eurovision song contest is crazy in itself (the competition is known for showy numbers), but then coming in 2nd and quickly making the top 10 in 15 countries is a feat in itself. this proves that a good song just can't be held down in this day and age, and the duo of ilse deLange & waylon are en route to becoming the next civil wars of europe. brilliant!
