Surprise Song! Now with Archive…

The surprise song is a little piece we’ve added to the transatlantic diablog after our major makeover on January 1st, 2012. It’s a song for your listening pleasure. Chosen by our offices east and west of the Atlantic, from a band or artist from one of the sides.

The trick and special thing is, that you don’t know directly what song or artist it is. So listen and enjoy first and then check it out a little more. Watch the video and find out who’s performing…

The surprise song is on top of our right sidebar and on the lower left side. It’s the same song, you decide where you like to listen.

Periodically we change the song without telling you. We had Bon Iver before they’ve won a Grammy. We had Black and we had some more. To make sure none of the songs will be forgotten, we now present you an archive of all songs. It’s below.

Have fun. Wanne recommend a song or tell us your opinion? Tell us, you’re welcome…

Waylayers – The Shine

“Flash!”

Alabama Shakes – Hang Loose (Live From KONK Studios, London)

“Don’t you ever worry ’bout a thing?” Soulful blues by southern rockers Alabama Shakes.

Cold Specks – Holland

As TheMoQingbird comments on YouTube: “Such powerful diptychs. The most stunning video I’ve seen in… forever.” And the song is quite haunting, too. Just listen to the vocals…

Bobby Fuller Four – I Fought The Law

Covered by The Clash, Green Day, Bruce Springsteen and many more: “I Fought The Law”. This is the 1966 version…
