The Top 74 of Spinvis


16. The day Richard Krajicek Wimbledon
Tududududududududu. This pleasantly groovy track was, of course, released on the date Krajicek held up the gold trophy. A striking concrete memory for De Jong of a performance under the Dom where he never thinks he will come because he is on the back of the bike of a Dave Strijbos wannabee.

17. Train Fire Dawn
Two words is nothing, three words is a story. Thus De Jong who connects the words train, fire and dawn here. His father, a mathematician, used to explain to him that two points only form a line, but three points set something in motion. Why these three words? The train is the travel and the aging (actually there should be a train in every Spinvis album title), fire is danger, dawn is the hope of a new day. Maybe a somewhat vague concept, but it comes together perfectly in the title track, a real 7-minute anthem.

18. Child of God
The later classic ‘Stefan En Lisette’ has a kind of biting blueprint in Child of God. The similarity: a song about a life story, a sketchy story about a woman from the past who was ‘kissed by fate’ and who is alienated from her friends when she moves into a closet of a house with an unkind guy.

19. On The Banks Of Time
No one can string together an accumulation of cryptic sentences as beautifully as Spinvis. The banks of time? A brown lemon? A strange gray sun? Josefien and Mike? Avant-garde poet Gust Gils will no doubt be proud to be the inspiration for this song. So no clear language. But man, what a terribly beautiful song this is.

20. Ronnie Cuts His Hair
Poor Ronnie: it was going so well, the ghost was out of his mind, and he could dream again that the moon was made of silver. But the optimism with which we were introduced to him has given way to confusion, and a desperate struggle against forgetting everyday details.

21. Autumn and Nieuwegein
Autumn, eternity, ‘from here everything is what it seems. ‘ The shades of gray will appear automatically, but beware: this song is not a Nieuwegein-dis. The much-mentioned attic room is also not his Pergola 55. Spinvis sings about the resignation of his here and now in Nieuwegein, where something as special can still be made as the debut album containing this song. Who drives the dead man’s car is still unknown.

22. Days of Grass, Days of Straw
In the title song of his second album, Spinvis transforms the borrowed title of American science fiction writer RA Lafferty into a whispering song about rowing across the street, leaving everything behind and starting over. Now perhaps more relevant than ever.

23. Pearl
Made on behalf of the Mauritshuis. Spiderfish zooms in on it Girl with a Pearl Earring van Vermeer and has a golden idea: he lets the Nederlands Kamerkoor watch. De Jong immediately feels that the song could end up on his new record. And yes, it gets up

‘When you pronounce it, it is a melody. High low, higher low, ‘says De Jong about the title track of the upcoming album, which is also on the most recent EP. Like all new songs self-produced. A song up close that only reveals the beautiful piano theme later. Laugh, of course, when the title actually turns out to be De Jong’s pin code.

25. Lotus Europa
The Lotus Europa, a beautiful car and the most poignant song Spinvis has ever made. Nothing is as bad as the sound of a swimming pool. Especially if you are scared. Especially when you die. Stephen King himself couldn’t have written a more absurd short story about the king of the diving board and legs disappearing.

26. Made-up Man
Most frivolous moment of the last EP, also approved for the album. The lo-fi brother of ‘Dageraadplein’. The strong piano hook, vocals and marching drum got a dazed twist, so that the sun starts to shine when the fanfare sets in.

27. Very Good News
Many of Spinvis’ songs are about fading memories and the silly goals that people pursue. He never threw off the heavy burden attached to it so smoothly as in ‘Very Good News’. Forgetting is okay, we just make new memories, and again tomorrow, and everything that seemed important is not at all. What luxury! Musically maybe a bit one-dimensional, but lyrically a key song on Justine Keller.

28. King Alcohol
Any number on Justine Keller has been given a shot of alcohol, but only one can be the king. De Jong is fascinated by the substance that has kept humanity in a daze for hundreds of years. It is logical that ‘Koning Alcohol’ has a nice comical atmosphere. It will make you thirsty.

29. Magicians and Spirits
Title track of a special album with outtakes and b-sides. The album opener immediately indicates that non-album tracks from Spinvis can also be enchanting.
