Thursday is Danish Music Day

At the end of every day of October, for the past 10 years, there’s been a day in Denmark that celebrates the music that we put out and give to the world. A day where the radio stations only play music composed and performed by people from Denmark. You might say that doing this is thinking a little highly of ourselves, but I do think we have a splendid music scene in the country at the moment and we need to cherish that.

Yet, unfortunately I don’t often see this music being noticed in other communities than our own little area of the world, so I would like to celebrate this day by tweeting an awesome Danish track every hour of Thursday, October 28th. This is a total of 24 tracks being shared with you over the course of the day.

To organize things, I have split the tracks up in five different categories, and you will see them gradually unveiled Thursday on my Twitter account under these themes:

12 AM Dance night
1 AM
2 AM
3 AM
4 AM Guitar morning
5 AM
6 AM
7 AM
8 AM Pop daylight
9 AM
10 AM
11 AM
12 PM
1 PM
2 PM Rocky afternoon
3 PM
4 PM
5 PM
6 PM
7 PM Electronic evening
8 PM
9 PM
10 PM
11 PM

Additionally, depending on if I get the tech set up right, you should be able to follow along right here on Pongsocket, with commentary as well!

Times are, of course, in Danish time, which is GMT+1. Tweets will be automated, because I’m not up at 4 AM.

I hope you’ll listen to some of the music, celebrate the day, and hopefully not find the tweeting too spammy, either!

Note: Danish music does not mean Danish lyrics. Actually, all the songs I’ve picked have English lyrics. We’re so international!

Edit: Danish Music Day is over. Here are the tracks that were featured.
