When desire is all that’s left.
Here’s another collab! Really love it when a plan comes together.
Vocals (Dutch): Dana Oei
Vocals (French): Wendy Maria
Piano: Wendy Maria, Anton Titsing
Though I love singing covers, I’m most proud of the songs I create myself. This one’s a Dutch/French chanson (Dutch lyrics written by Dave van den Berg, French lyrics by me). Enjoy!
Vocals, instruments & edit by Wendy Maria.
It was one of her favorite songs. Or I’m assuming it was. One day she sent this YouTube-link to me and told me she’d love to hear me cover Muse. It took me a while to finally come to terms with the fact that unfortunately I’ve waited too long and she never heard me actually sing it… But here it is. Dedicated to my brilliant best friend forever J. († 2012).

I’ve just started watching The Twilight Saga (and I’m hooked), but came across this awesome soundtrack many years ago already on the internet. I’ve been a bit hesitant to cover this lullaby myself, ’cause it seemed much too high for me. Both literally and figuratively speaking. Then it hit me: I could of course transpose it and play it myself on the piano, just the way it fits me. Some problems are just too easy to solve. Enjoy! Oh and if you like this even a bit: feel free to subscribe to my channel. It’s greatly appreciated 🙂
Honestly? Long before I even realized it was the soundtrack of a movie (called ‘Once’), I was hooked to this song. I love Glen Hansard’s voice, I love the way he and Marketa Irglová harmonize, basically I love everything about it. I seem to repeat myself a lot these days, but yeah: this, too, is one of my favorites. Enjoy!
Definitely been in love with these lyrics since forever. Chris Isaak’s voice, the whole song: dreamy and sexy. So happy I got the chance to finally cover it. Let me know what you think! Make sure you subscribe to my YouTube-channel if you like covers like this one. I’ve recorded a few up til now while in lockdown.
Only the brilliant musicians die young. We love Jeff Buckley, so this song needed to be covered. Guitarist Johnny G. Smith delivered, for sure. Vocally I found it a real challenge though. Let me know what you think of the result!
There are many musicians who have inspired me along the way. The list is endless. Lea Salonga is definitely in my Top 5. In the late 80’s-early 90’s she played the original part of Kim in the musical Miss Saigon. When I heard Lea sing this particular song, I just wished I could be a singer like she is. This is my ode to my beautiful twindaughters (born 2014) Lea and Mara who celebrate their 6th birthday today. And yes, the name of my firstborn (Lea was born 7 minutes earlier) ain’t a coincidence.
Love singing with my twinsister (made possible by Adobe Premiere Pro ;-)) Here’s my version of “Say something”, originally performed by A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera. I know this song has been interpreted in many ways. Some say it’s a (broken) lovesong. At the same time I know it’s been played at funerals. To me it’s a song reminding me of my late dearest friend whom I wasn’t able to reach at a deeper level for years, when she was struggling with mental health problems. To you this song may have other meanings. Guess the most important thing about music is that it makes you feel something, no matter what.
