  • My Music Story...

    Apr 12 2011, 19:24



    As you can see, I love Trance, and special Armin van Buuren, our Dutch DJ...



    At first, when I was a lot younger, I listened to 80's and 90's.
    Listened to Queen, Eagles, E.L.O and other...
    Music that my father loved...
    of course I did to, it was my first and I still love some songs of those bands.



    I was a singer myself, when I was about 20 years old.
    I sang songs of Dreamboat Annie by Heart, I did that for quite some time...
    I was standing on a trailer, in black leather and high heels and wild hair, singing, screaming my heart out, LOL...
    It was a awesome experience, and I never forget...
    I never saved some of those tapes...stupid!

    That was the moment I listen in a different way to music,
    like more with feeling and emotion.
    Also listen better to lyrics and music lines.
    I tried some instruments, but never came far with it...
    I loved singing more, always sang, like my daughter does now...
    Like mother, like daughter, ha ha.
    (Sorry, just had to ad that...)



    Then I started listening to Saga and Marillion and Pink Floyd...
    More music.
    I always had a thing for classic music, not all the way, but I love a lot of parts of it...
    Like Beethoven and Bach, Vivaldi and BRAHMS.

    The lyrics were awesome (not from the classic music), like telling a story while performing a whole album, I loved it!
    Like the album Misplaced Childhood by Marillion
    I could listen to it all day...



    Then, when I had kids and were a lot older I listened Sensation White at a friends place...for the first time, and I simply adored the music...
    I forgot all the other music and only listened to '''', as it was called then.





    Thats when my love for was born...
    At first I was crazy about Tiesto, but later it became Armin.
    I still love some Tiesto albums and tracks, like In Search Of Sunrice, In My Memory and more.

    And of course more classic trance artists...
    Like ATB, Rank 1, Kamaya Painters, Paul Oakenfold and many more, even some Scooter tracks, haha...like Nessaja and Ramp!
    Still brings me back to my old self...

    But Armin is my absolute favorite...
    I once had the change to go to a concert of him, in Den Bosch @ City-Moves



    It was totally awesome, never to forget...
    If he's going to be in the Netherlands soon...am going with my son and his friends...
    They promised!

    When my kids were younger, they brought home friends and they all called me Trance-Mama...LOL!

    Here's a pic from the Trance Mama @ Armin...




    (It was the concert above in Den Bosch...)

    I love Trance if it brings tears to my eyes, emotions and chicken-skin...
    Armin does all that...
    Not out of grief, but cause it's so beautiful...

    Now you all know how I came to Trance...
    I'll die with Trance Music in my ears!!! LOL
