Join the top 2000


Yeehaaa… the top 2000 list is online – so hereby I announce
my annual TOP 2000 MUSICAL BLOG PARTY!!!

You foreign visitors, don’t stop reading ’cause



From Christmas to New Year, the Radio 2 team in the Netherlands
presents the 2000 favorite songs of the listeners. 24 hours a day!
You can listen to this 156-hour musical marathon on the website
or tune in on Radio 2.

as an ‘extra’ – the radio broadcasting will be linked to my blog,
so you only have to tune in to my blog to hear the music play!

The broadcasting starts on Tuesday, December 25 at 12.o0/noon CET
and will go on ’till Monday, December 31. Just before  midnight on
new years eve, the #1 will play on the radio.

24 hours, day and night: MUSIC!


You can find the top 2000 list of 2012 online now!!!

Click on the link to the top 2000 list in my side menu
to find the list and feel free to grab that funky blinkie
to celebrate our Musical Party week!

Here’s a screen dump of the online page and the list.

Last year, the time and date of broadcasting was there too… but this year
you will have to download the list to find out which song is broadcasted
on which day. When you download the pdf, it looks like this:

The broadcasting will start with playing number 2000
(View To A Kill – Duran Duran) and work their way up to the number one.


These are the ‘rules’ of the party.

  • Pick a song (or more) from the top 2000 list and use the song
    as inspiration for your art. (Interpret freely!)
    You can create art in every form: scrap layouts, drawings,
    paintings, art journal pages, photos, postcards, ATC’s… whatever!
  • E-mail me a photo of your work to
    (find the e-mail also in the side menu)
    In your e-mail, please state
    - name of the artist
    – song title
    - what number the song is in the top 2000 list****
    date of broadcasting****(see last column in the top 2000 list)
    ****Please don’t forget this as I don’t want to spend hours
    scrolling through the list to find out which song you
    were inspired by and its number on the list!!!

    also state:
    – your name
    - link to your website/blog (if you have one)
    I will publish your art on my blog with your (linked) name
    on the date the song is playing on the radio/Internet.
  • You can play as much as you like but this year there is an
    additional rule: no more then two pieces per artist
    will be published on one and the same date!

    (I added this extra rule to avoid that one artist overflows
    the post on just one particular day.) This means that the
    total submission is 2 x 7 is 14 art pieces spread – published
    over seven days.
  • The blog party starts at the same time as the radio broadcasts
    (December 25 – 12.oo/noon CET) and will go on until New Year’s eve.
    Following the list (Central European Time), new blogposts go online
    at midnight. New art that is submitted later will be add to the post
    during the day.
  • A number at the top of each post will tell you how many art pieces
    are published in that day’s post, so you can keep track of new art
    that was add during the day.

Scroll through the archives here if you want to get a view on former years.

Are you in for this top 2000 Musical blog party?
Then what are you waiting for?
As of now, you can send your art to me so choose a song from the list
and start creating!

This party is open to everyone from all over the world!
After all, music is international, isn’t it?!!


I can’t wait to see what wonderful art I will find in my mailbox!

    Ik krijg alleen op geen enkele manier te zien wanneer een nummer wordt gedraaid. Heb alle downloads al bekeken maar niks hoor en ook via pdf ziet het er anders uit als op je voorbeeld.
    Enig idee hoe ik daar aan kan komen of is dat niet noodzakelijk ?
