We Love Stories Like This

| Filed under: Listen To ThisAnouk

Good music will get out there.

Sometimes, it just takes A WHILE!

Dutch singer Anouk, a Perez fave, released her song Lost in 2004.

It did well in Holland and Anouk moved on.

Well, now the song is having a GLOBAL resurgence!

Last month, our twin won Noway's Got Talent and his rendition of the song helped Anouk's original version of Lost crack the Top 10 of the iTunes singles charts in Norway.

Now, the song was featured in So You Think You Can Dance in America and it's currently racing up the iTunes singles charts in the U.S. It's currently in the top 50!

So crazy!

The song is a very pretty ballad.

CLICK HERE to check out Anouk's video for Lost.

    Hey I am Dutch.. there's more great Dutch musical talent: Tiesto, Armin van Buuren, Ferry Corsten in the world's top 5 of best DJ's. OK we also had the "Golden Earring" in the early 70's…. *grin*.

    anouk rocks. she's one of my favourite artists. funny how she always said that it would be impossible for her to gain succes in the united states… and now this :) I'm really happy for her!

  33. frenc says – reply to this


    33

    Perez, you absolutely rock, thank you for featuring a woman who deserves to be a worldwide super star, it's so unfair that she isn't just because she was born in the Hague and not in New York. Anouk is amazing!



  34. 34

    perez i'm so excited that you posted this. when i heard this song on sytycd, i absolutely loved it. i made sure to commit the artist and title to memory so i could get it later. of course i forgot it right away. i'm going to go snatch this up on itunes!

  35. X says – reply to this

    I'm from the Netherlands and I've totally forgotten about this song but now I hear it again and I can sing the song along haha. Yeah it was a big hit here! Anouk's songs always are hits. I hope she's going to do awesome in America =D

  57. San says – reply to this


    57

    Anouk is just talented, not a 16 year old made up barbiedoll with voices made by a synthesizer..!

    Voor de Nederlanders hier, ik merk dat Nederland erg hard achteruit gaat betreft socialiteit..ga elkaar niet af zitten bekken op een gossip site, maar kijk eerst naar jezelf voor je een mening over een ander geeft..Laten we met zn allen proberen, zeker nu met het EK, om Nederland weer te krijgen zoals het was..in ieder geval socialer dan.. ;)

  58. ~~ says – reply to this


    58

    I don't get what's so awesome about her, and I honestly don't understand why all these dutch people around here are like "OMG ANOUK IS DE BESTE! NEDERLAND GAAT DE WERELD OVERNEMEN!!!!"

    Well Anouk has much better songs than this one.

    You should listen to "nobodys wife" / RU kidding me / everything / The dark….

    And so on, she is a great singer but not so much this song

  62. San says – reply to this

    This is such a beautiful song, and she did an amazing rendition. To all the people with negative comments, you need to open your minds. You probably had your mind made up before you even listened to this song. Anouk has talent, unlike many of the cookie-cutter, mainstream "artists" out there, that have to lip sync when they perform live because they can't sing for shit. Sadly to say, image comes before talent nowadays.

  73. Jessi says – reply to this

    I'm sooooo glad about this post Perez! Anouk is one of our best singers, We all love her here!
    I hope she'll break through in your country!

    I sort of like it better when artists don't make it to the top of the charts in the US. I feel like songs are always killed once they make it to the radio. Honestly, who can even stand "Love Song" by Sara Bareilles anymore??

    Yaaaaay Anouk in America! Come here and sing for all your fans! I love Anouk. Her music would do very well here, all my American friends in Amsterdam loved her. And Kane. God I miss Kane! You can keep Marco Borsato though…
    Perez check out Krezip's I Would Stay. Now that is a song.

    95

    Hey Perez, you know what MUSIC is.. I'm ducht and we love Anouk, she's a number 1 in Holland!! It's a great woman!!

  96. Ana says – reply to this


    96

    Toda la música de Anouk es fantástica y muy ecléptica, tiene desde el rock más cañero hasta regge, pasando por el pop más comercial ( que no tiene que ser necesariamente malo) o por baladas en francés. yo la descubrí poruna amigamia, y la verdad es que estoy muy agredecida. una de miscanciones preferidas es Everything y porsu puesto, su primer gran hit, Nobody's wife, que ami me pilló muy de chica.

    She's awesome! But the recordlabel is stupid!!!!
    Why are they not sending Anouk to the USA??
    I think that the fans have to collect some mo' to bring Anouk to the USA!!!

  100. dita says – reply to this

    Cool perez's giving "our" Anouk some attention!

    you should listen to "michel", "mood indigo", "sacrifice" and "break down the wall" that songs are way better than this one. God i love Anouk!

    Hey dutchies, niet zo bitchen op elkaar ;)
