    Bent u ook al in de ban van het songfestival? En is het u ook al
    opgevallen dat de gelegenheidscombinatie van Ilse DeLange en Waylon de
    naam Common Linnets draagt? Dat is het Engels voor kneutjes en dat
    klopt ook wel. Kneutjes hebben namelijk de sympathieke eigenschap dat
    ze altijd maar doorbabbelen ook onder het vliegen. Ze kunnen geen
    moment hun snavel houden en…ze maken ook nooit ruzie. “Calm after the
    storm” is ook zo’n vriendelijk babbelliedje. Ik vind het wel leuk,
    gezellig en warm en wat mij betreft worden ze nummer één.
