The next song coming out will be 'A 3'.
Dutch motorways consist of one letter A followed by a number of digits.
From Amsterdam going East to the German border is called A 1.
From Amsterdam going South East to Maastricht is called A 2.
From Amsterdam going South to Rotterdam is called A 3. But this motorway is never built. It is on plans of the motorway network in The Netherlands (1932) but did never make it.
A 4, A 5, A 6, A 7, A 8, A 9, A 10, A 12, A 13, A 15, A 16, A 17, A 18, A 20 and there are 30 more.
That is something to write a song about, I thought.
Using words like:
Searching for, minding my own business, getting tired, having a hole in my shoe, barefoot, no soles left, the perseverance and will to find what you are looking for. Depression, a hole in my soul and the expression of sadness. Fulfillment of life's questions or demands and the ridicule of finding freedom, or not? Peace or resignation are maybe better words in this context. Although the happiness of the music-style makes it more bearable.
I had to think of 'The Smiths'.

The song Blue Square is uploaded to the publisher, and is prepared to get released on 150+ streaming websites. I have a full list of these websites, you can find it down this text.
It can take a week or 7 days or 5 working days to get released. They say it is sometimes only a few days. If there is one of the main music streaming websites, I will let you know.
The beautiful thing is that I did the uploading together with my daughter Lois, who will be singing in this song. It is an exited time. And I hope everything will go smooth. As soon as there is news, ... (that is what I mean;) I let you know.
Update: October 9th, 2019, It goes smooth, all the way. Check the "Blue Square" page.
"Blue Square" a song about love
We all know the feeling of being in love. If not, you will miss the strongest drive in life (that's my humble opinion). "Falling in love", we wander around with texts in our heads. And that is exactly what you will find here in the lyrics of this song. All sentences have something to do with my experiences with love, although they may not make sense to you (probably).
I call the first song ready. Featuring Lois, my daughter, who sings. The song is orchestrated, based on a guitar riff I played for many years. I do not play guitar very well. I know some tricks that sound pretty cool and made this song out of it.
