Wouter van der Goes, together with his NPO Radio 2 colleagues Emmely de Wilt and Frank van ‘t Hof, gave the starting signal for the Voting Week of the Top 2000 this morning. ,,Fantastic, it was great to be busy with this again”, he says in conversation with the ANP.
“The Top 2000 fever is now slowly rising,” said the NPO Radio 2 DJ. ,, Talking about songs that should or should not be in it, wonderful. These are the discussions that are fun and connect.”
The Voting Week started differently than usual. Where it was actually the intention that the DJs would drive through the country with the so-called Ballotbus to collect votes from listeners, Van der Goes stayed on Saturday with his colleagues in the Top 2000 Café in Sound and Vision in Hilversum. ,,That was a disappointment, but we put it aside pretty quickly,” said the DJ. “But no virus or mutation stands in the way of voting, that list will be broadcast!”
Prior to the moment when Van der Goes, De Wilt and Van ‘t Hof pressed the red button, Danny Vera released his number roller coaster to listen. The Zeeland singer thus came in at number four in the list in 2019 and even bumped into last year’s edition Bohemian Rhapsody of Queen of the Throne as the new number one.
This year the DJ hopes that there will be a lot of voting for songs or music by artists who have been in the news, such as the Golden Earring of A Whiter Shade of Pale by Procol Harum, the favorite song of Peter R. de Vries. “Let that record go up, that seems like a wonderful tribute to Peter”, says Van der Goes.
Asked if roller coaster will lead the list again this year, Van der Goes says quite firmly yes. ,,If you ask me, it’s back on 1. If anything is a rollercoaster, it’s the phase we’re in now.”
