Ticket to Somewhere – Beau One

Ticket to Somewhere – Beau One

About the song

We all pretend to be going Somewhere, but that happens to be Anywhere or even Nowhere. Nowhere man, the famous Beatles song was the inspiration.

Just like in that song, Beau One is playing around with the meaning of Somewhere, because everybody wants to go Somewhere but nobody really knows where that even is. Life and its destinations can be very tricky. The song was first recorded with an acoustic guitar and one voice and now 10 years later rerecorded with a full band.

About Beau One

Beau One was born in the early sixties. The first band he played in was formed by his brother and was named Frozen Fire. Beau was 7, his brother 12. Both young boys were inspired by the Beatles, but just a few years later they discovered the blues. Bands like Chicken Shack, Led Zeppelin, Santana and early Fleetwood Mack were absorbed. When Beau discovered Pink Floyd ’s Dark side of the moon, he knew that music would be his passion forever. It was 1975.

In the year 1981 Beau One left to France to go busking. Over a period of 6 years, that’s what he did for a living, at first alone, later with the band One Night Stand. The band played in small clubs and on the streets, quite everywhere in Europe.

In 1987 the band B-System was formed. This funkrock band performed around 50 gigs on a period of nearly two years. They produced one single: Hot Lover.

In 1988 Beau One joined A Split Second. The band had a hit with the song Flesh and toured the whole world.

Around the same time the band ASI SEA was formed but it would take some time before they became a real band.

In 1995 the CD ‘These Days’ was released.  Some of the tracks made it to the radio on a regular basis, but the CD never sold more than a few thousand copies.

Asi Sea would continue until 2013.

In the year 2014 Beau One wrote his first solo CD, Almost Naked. The idea was to go back to the basics, and use one acoustic guitar, and one voice only. The CD never made it to the radio but was sold quite well on the gigs.

Two years ago, Beau One started a new project with Fran Devos, this time in his own language, Dutch.

Meanwhile he is working on new songs for a solo record.

To be very much continued.

Lyrics

I bought myself a ticket to Somewhere, a place I never heard of before

It came out of Nowhere, and now I need to know more

Somewhere

We’re going to Somewhere, yeah yeah yeah

There’s plenty of room or at least, that’s what I heard

So why don’t you join me?

We could have lots of fun on the road to Somewhere, some call it Nowhere, but I don’t care

Somewhere

We’re going to Somewhere, yeah yeah yeah

Well I got a ticket, I bought one for two, yeah

So if I ever make it, I’d rather make it with you

Somewhere

Well it’s been years since we travelled through Nowhere

We could be Anywhere

But the crowd’s ok, I guess we all found a way to pretend we’re already there

In Somewhere

We’re going to Somewhere, yeah yeah yeah

Midlife Crisis – Peter en de Vos

Midlife Crisis – Peter en de Vos

About the song

One evening Peter and Fran (aka de Vos) where talking about going to a restaurant with an ex-partner for what should have been a nice dinner but realising during dinner that there¡¦s really nothing left of whatever has been… and they immediately got the idea of writing a song about this feeling.

The result was 2 completely different songs: Alles gaat voorbij, a song that was released as the titlesong on their EP in 2021, and Midlife Crisis, a song that needed the full band feel and for that reason did not seem to fit on the EP.

The story of Midlife Crisis is the story of loss, of failure in relationships, and the questions you start to ask yourself when you unexpectedly find yourself single again in your 40’s.

Midlife Crisis is the second single of the full album they are working on at this moment, and just like in the first single Ben jij het there is a non-disputable influence of Henny Vrienten…

About Peter en de Vos

From the first meeting between Peter Boone and Fran Devos, the conversation went back and forth between music and love. They’d both been through a few things in their search for ‘the one’ who didn’t seem to want to cross their path.

Peter once had a can of peas and even a stereo thrown at his head, Fran was choked a few times…

Destructive relationships, they both knew something about it. Still, they both kept believing in love, and kept looking for it.

Since that first meeting, they searched together, and found love in each other.

They make songs about everything that could ever go wrong in love, but also about how – in a good relationship – everything is much more fun when you can do it together.

Lyrics

De dag dat ik je liet gaan deed alles pijn

Soms is het zo vermoeiend om opnieuw alleen te zijn

Het zoeken naar nog maar eens een nieuwe ware jacob

Eindigt via Tinder in een super saaie blowjob

Ik heb de pest aan oppervlakkigheid

Ik ontdek een andere vorm van penisnijd

Midlife crisis

‘T is nu of nooit 

Emotioneel berooid

Ik heb het nooit geleerd  

Me telkens weer opnieuw bezeerd

En wat ga ik er aan doen 

Ik zet de liefde op rantsoen

En elke keer opnieuw slecht landen, stranden,

Verbroken banden en een hoop pijn, de pijn van het zijn

Tot ik weer de liefde vind

Eerst mezelf in dat eeuwige kind

En daarna jou volledig verblind

De liefde als een antwoord

Waaiend in de wind

Midlife crisis

Ja ‘t is nu of nooit 

Ik heb mezelf met jeugd getooid

Zou ik het dan toch hebben geleerd 

Me niet voor helemaal niks bezeerd

Wat kan ik er aan doen   

Liefde zet ik nooit meer op rantsoen

Komt er ooit een einde aan

Dat hunkeren naar de volle maan

Is het wachten op Godot

De liefde is altijd postuum en dat vind ik maar zozo

Midlife crisis

Ja, nu of nooit   

En opnieuw gekooid

Nee ik heb echt niks geleerd

Doe nog steeds alles volledig verkeerd

Wat kan ik er aan doen    

Maar liefde hoort toch echt niet op rantsoen
