Hello – Martin Solveig

I can recall myself listening to this tune playing in the canteen of the office in Amstelveen, Netherlands. I can vividly picture the big square table and a few of us sitting around it. I never imagine myself having a European centric career while growing up in Penang Malaysia. Well, back to this song. It was released in 2010, the year I got officially married and was based out of Amsterdam.

The song’s was a collaboration between Martin Solveig (I just learned that he is French) and Canadian synth-pop band Dragonette. It charted number 1 in Netherlands, Belgium and Austria. The video was shot in the venue of the French Open, Roland-Garros. The full video features many cameos including the tennis superstar Novak Djokovic.

Hope you enjoy this tune.
