Listening to music while cleaning, it makes everything so much more fun! Whether it is the kitchen, the bathroom or the attic. When I clean at home never without music. Ironing is also such a wonderful moment to have the music on. It goes a lot faster and it is a wonderful excuse to go crazy unnoticed. I even listen to music when reading handheld vacuum reviews.
I love to do things with music because I sing along and dance along. Count on YES!
Listen to jazz music
Everyone has a music style that you love. For me personally that is jazz. I love jazz. So there is always a CD (yes, I still have them!), Or a phone ready with which I can listen to jazz. What do you think of ‘Get Yourself A New Broom’ by Duke Ellington… nice and fitting too. Or ‘Sway’ from the one and only Ratpack: Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis, Dean Martin. I am already looking forward to the sopping!
The Hague and jazz are of course a kind of two-part. Naturally, the North Sea Jazz festival takes place every year. But the city has many more places where you can regularly listen to live music. At Café Murphy’s Law, for example, there is a jazz evening every month where legendary Dutch musicians play.
Jazz pianist Rob Agerbeek
Perhaps the best known of them all, pianist Rob Agerbeek is world-famous for his jazz. He was born in Jakarta in 1937. And you know what’s so special, he’s completely self-taught. He taught himself everything, all by listening to gramophone records. He is also called mister Boogiewoogie, but he can do so much more. I am always terribly impressed when you hear him play so live.
Trombonist Flip Robers
Flip is also known for the Harbor Jazz band. With his band, he became famous all the way to Japan! You have to check. But they also toured the United States and Canada. Yet he is not a full-time musician, because he is actually an architect and has his own architect’s office. Every time I hear him play I get happy. So turn that volume knob to FULL, grab a bucket, a cloth, a vacuum cleaner and whatever else you need. Listen to music and clean it, believe me, it’s a ‘match made in heaven’! Or a heavenly combination. Lots of fun! But I am also curious about your favorite cleaning music. What does your living room or kitchen echo while brushing?
