Soldier on - Ruby Ruijter
on: February 25, 2022, 11:18:37
A Dutch original, though not an original written by us*.
Are you curious? Have a listen.

There’s more on the way by way of collabs between Ruby and me.
And if you like this, please listen again on YouTube and like/subscribe it there too.

But first:



Enjoy this new found and intense talent!
Kind regards, Gus

Hoi hoi @Mo
I wish I could say: ‘she discovered me’, but that would be too creative.
We discovered we have a mutual friend.
And you are right, she sings wonderfully!

She’ll be proud that you listened. And I am proud too.
Thank you!
Kind regards, Gus

This cooperation is still in its earliest stages @Bill so I think it’s too soon to make promises.
So, not being a politician, I will steer clear from promises I may not be able to keep. But that I am really looking forward to a possible cooperation is absolutely true.

But I am glad you like what Ruby musically has to offer. And I think she will like your response too. YouTube? Half the screen Ruby and half the screen black, where I am supposed to be?
Please don't forget I am a writer pur sang.
To be continued! In whatever form.
Kind regards, Gus

very charming song and video
A simple  but powerful production
I've been questioning the soldiers glory lately, it's just been on my mind.
The song really held my attention

Yes, @rightly i am aware of the association.
The song is written in 2020, plus the meaning of the title is:

to continue to do something or to try to achieve something even though it is difficult The researchers encountered many problems but they soldiered on.

So it has no real connection with warfare etc. And I’m glad. We’ve more than our share of sorrow right now.

But anyway, I appreciate your listening and post a lot. Thank you!
Also on Ruby’s behalf, kind regards, Gus

A tiny bit puzzling @Vince ?
Or maybe I think there’s more behind it that I see at first sight.

If ‘thanks for posting’ is what you had in mind; then the answer would be:
Thank you for thanking me. I like it a lot too, though it’s a far cry from the stuff I usually get to do.

And thank you for your listen.
Kind regards, Gus

@LePlongeur  . . . Gus, it's a great piece, with a good melody and Ruby has done an amazing job singing this. I found the lyrics particularly powerful, especially when I think of someone close to me who has inspired me by "soldiering on" despite the odds. Thank you so much for sharing it here, and look forward to more from this obvious talent.

@LePlongeur

A beautiful voice.  The breathy backing vocals are heavenly.  I certainly enjoyed listening!  Best of luck with future collaborations.
