The Dollhouse – Short story

‘Honey, look what I found!’ Anna was called by her mum, who was cleaning the attic.

She ran upstairs, and was greeted by a huge dollhouse. It was beautiful.

It had two stories, and was painted white. The doors and windows were light blue, and the fence was painted a nice shade of lilac. Small rose bushes covered the fence and a green mailbox. A small tree with a swing-set stood in the garden. The outside alone was rather detailed, and Anna smiled.

Smells Like Teen Spirit – Cover

Dit nummer is zo gaaf om te doen! Ik heb dit op donderdag avond opgevoerd in Het Platform theater,  en ben echt heel blij met alle positieve reacties die ik gekregen heb!

Ook ben ik mega blij met het feit dat de jongens van de band mee wilde spelen, en dat ik dus de mogelijkheid heb gekregen om dit nummer te performen.

Iedereen kent dit nummer haast wel, en ik hoop hem nog een keer in de studio op te nemen!

 

Sweet Home Alabama

 

Juni 2017, alweer een hele tijd geleden. Een golden oldie,  Sweet Home Alabama, eind presentatie in 4 Atheneum, Werkman College. Samen met Wout zong ik dit lied. Erg leuk! Enjoy!

Ondanks de ietwat dubieuze tekst (de strijd tussen Noordelijk en Zuidelijk Amerika), blijft het wel een enorm gaaf nummer om te zingen.

We are the world

Jaren geleden kwamen artiesten bijelkaar om geld in te zamelen voor Afrika. Het resulteerde in het bekende nummer ‘We are the world’. Bekende artiesten als Michael Jackson, Lionel Richie, Willie Nelson, Bruce Springsteen en vele anderen leverden hun bijdrage geheel belangeloos.

Helaas moet ik concluderen dat dit nummer nog niets aan actualiteit heeft ingeboekt. Nog steeds is er oorlog, honger, armoede op de wereld… terwijl als wij dit zouden willen oplossen… het kan!

This day and age I feel like most of us want to change the world for the better. We want a better future, a better tomorrow, we want peace. This is why I love this cover so much. Together with all the students at the music-school and studio Sennalive Producties we recorded our cover of We are the world, a song that became famous in 1985. We recorded it, made a videoclip in a nearby church. By doing this we collected money for Unicef.

 

We are the world, opgenomen met alle leerlingen van Sennalive, gespeeld door Stephen Huizen. Opgenomen in 2017. De videoclip is opgenomen in de Sint Nicolaas Kerk in Appingedam.

Zelf heb ik mijn solo rond de 2 minuten, en aan het einde 🙂

Beyond Death

Beyond Death, geschreven, gecomponeerd en opgenomen door Luna Hamelink.

I’ve puzzled a long time with this song. I’ve had parts of the lyrics already laying around since 2017, and I kept wondering: “How can I change this into a song?”

I think I’ve changed both the lyrics and the chords atleast a hundred times till it became the song it is today. Everything is written, composed, played and recorded by me. And well, I guess I finally finished this song! Tell me what you think 🙂

 

Sweet dreams

Cover van Eurythmics’ Sweet Dreams (are made of this)

Sweet dreams are made of this… This cover that is!

Performance and music adoption created by me.

 

Sweet dreams are made of this
Who am I to disagree?
I travel the world
And the seven seas,
Everybody’s looking for something.
Some of them want to use you
Some of them want to get used by you
Some of them want to abuse you
Some of them want to be abused.
Sweet dreams are made of this.
Who am I to disagree?
I travel the world
And the seven seas,
Everybody’s looking for something.
Some of them want to use you
Some of them want to get used by you
Some of them want to abuse you
Some of them want to be abused.
Sweet dreams are made of this.
Songwriters: Annie Lennox / David Allan Stewart

Midnight

Church bells were ringing when Lucy had woken up. Slightly startled, and even more slightly confused she found herself sitting up straight. She frowned, not knowing where the ringing came from. After all, the nearest church was over a mile away. She looked at her alarm, and saw it was only midnight. Shaking her head, and deciding it must have been a dream, she laid down again and tried to fall back asleep. Still, she felt uneasy. She had the feeling several pairs of eyes were watching her every breath. She held her new necklace in her hand, a gift from her grandmother, and steadied her breath.

‘It’s absolutely nothing’, she mumbled. ‘Keep yourself together Lucy.’ She closed her eyes, started to doze off when…
