Zoveel te doen - Toontje Lager

Back to the Eighties, when Dutch bands were still able to produce something listenable. Toontje Lager was a band that was founded in 1978. They released their self-titled debut album in 1980, then followed up with 'Er op of er onder' and 'Stiekem gedanst'. Those two albums were very successful in the Netherlands, peaking at number 12 and 2 in the album charts respectively.

From the third album comes this single, 'Zoveel te doen' ('So much to do'). It's about being busy all the time, being too busy to have time to leave this place. It's simple synthpop like more bands were making at that time in the Eighties - but not so much in Dutch.

Found: Record fair, Rijswijk, March 14, 2009
