Perfect Rokjesdag

Dutch writer Martin Bril (r.i.p) is the godfather of Rokjesdag (Short Skirt Day), that mysterious day in spring where almost every girl seems to be wearing a little skirt It's their way of saying: winter's over, spring's here. Bril wrote several columns about this phenomenon, and after he died (last year, April 15) it was decided that April 15 is the official Rokjesdag. Now, as you know, the elements never stick to one day, or one moment you can pin down. Today is a perfect day for short skirts, so avid skirtwatchers (not -chasers, mind you) like me, Wilbert and Niels compiled the soundtrack to the most anticipated day of the year.
Go here to see the tracklist (Emmanuelle Seigner, Aretha Franklin, Bobby Gentry, etc). Go here to download.

  1. Excellent compilation, guys! Before the expression Rokjesdag - Short Skirts Day might be a more accurate translation - became current, I was only aware of Bloesjesdag - Blouse Day - which focuses on another charming aspect of the female anatomy. I guess it's a bit later than Rokjesdag...

  2. Short Skirt Day, allitereert ook beter. Heb 't veranderd.

  3. wow! that's a huge explosion. but tha lady is so brave.
