22 Tracks about Football – Various Artists

22 tracks about footbal

Speaking of football, or soccer, whatever you prefer, I decided
to make a collector about it. It begins with a track from a cd
full of 78’s collected by John Peel’s wife. Nice old song, in the
middle we have two African songs, one Colombian and another
oldie with the Marx Brothers. On no.13 we have a track sung by
no one less than Pelé, with Sergio Mendes and on 20 a quite bad
Dutch caranaval song by our own Johan Cruyff, you wont believe
your ears. Most songs are Brazillian and about the famous Rio-club
Flamengo or Pelé, get it & spread it…

Tante Leen – Successen, His Master’s Voice 1965

Last oktober I posted an album by a dear artist from Amsterdam,
the city of my ancestors. Johnny Jordaan is still a hero of the
old days and has sentimental value to me. He used to sing with
this fine lady. Tante Leen and Johnny Jordaan are unforgettable
and there’s even a Johnny Jordaan Plein ( square ). Funny enough
I bought this LP today in Utrecht instead of Amsterdam. The music
is typical for the ‘Jordaan’, an area in old Amsterdam. Music quite
different from what you’re used to find here. Tante Leen had her own
little café where she used to sing for the public, the only day she
didn’t sing was when Ajax played at home. Every fortnight on sunday she
was in the Ajax football stadium cheering for her club.

Het Beste van Johnny Jordaan, EMI 1985

I use to post ‘music for the people’ of many country’s.
This time I want to introduce a Dutch singer to you, one I
really enjoy listening to. This is typical music from the
Amsterdam neighbourhood, ‘de Jordaan’. The album is from ’85
but the recordings are made between 1954 ( track # 1 ) and
early 60’s. Johnny Jordaan had huge succes late 50’s, his music,
though sung with enormous Amsterdam slang, was played throughout
the Netherlands. I always loved it, something quite different
for once. Hope you appreciate.

tracks;

1 Bij ons in de Jordaan
2 Geef mij maar Amsterdam
3 De afgekeurde woning
4 De parel van de Jordaan
5 Johnny’s potpourri 1
6 Johnny’s potpourri 2
7 Daar mag je alleen naar kijken
8 Een pikketanussie

10 Pruimenpap
11 De begrafenis van Manke Nelis

Sergio Mendes e Pelé – O.S.T. Pelé, Elenco 1978/2002

Today I have a funpost ! In an hour or so, the European ‘Futbol’
(soccer) Championship in Austria and Switzerland is about to start.
For the occasion I thought it would be fun to post some music by
the two greatest soccerplayers of the previous century. ‘Pelé’ and
‘Cruyff’. I’d say Cruyff was a good second if we speak about soccer,
but if we speak about music, I am affraid he is far from that position.
Brazilians have a nature, they’re born with music in their vains. Pelé
comes in with a great Bossa composition, backed by ‘Sergio Mendes’,
what could go wrong ? World, please have mercy on Johan Cruyff
and us Dutch people, we don’t have that sunny way. What we do
have however, is a good sense of humour, Johan Cruyff surprises
us with this 1969 Dutch Carnaval number, once again there
is no comparison.
