Welcome to my blog. In 2016 I wrote my first stories on my favorite albums. Due to the many, nice and positive feedback and comments I started this blog, A Pop Life subtitled My life with music.
What can you expect? Stories about music which I think is nice, beautiful of moving, reviews, concert reports and much more. I get very happy whenever I receive comments, whether through one of the social media channels or by using the comment form on this site. I love to hear from my readers!
For now, have very much (reading) fun!

This time the A Pop Life panel pondered the question which Prince cover was the most beautiful of them all and came up with the ultimate list!
On September 9, 2022, Sudan Archives released her second album: the beautiful Natural Brown Prom Queen. Definitely highly recommended!
In 1985 Prince And The Revolution played to an audience of millions. The audio recordings have been remastered and (finally) released seperately. It's a beautiful document!
Over 5 years after the fantastic DAMN., Kendrick Lamar finally releases a successor. Is the new album really that good again? Yes, yes and yes again!
Guest author Edward provides us with his take on the new ABBA album Voyage!
3½/5: Sudan Archives provides a highly entertaining evening in Amsterdam's Paradiso Noord. She has great potential. Her audience is very, very enthusiastic.
4½/5: Pavement delivered a thrilling show. My personal concert surprise in 2022. No small feat, given my high expectations and hopes!
4½/5: Kendrick Lamar and Antwerp: veni, vidi, vici. The audience ate from his hands and the music and presentation were impressive. Again!
On October 28th, 2022, the (best?) Beatles album Revolver will be re-released with new mixes and many extras. Something to look forward to!
