Songs without Music

Agency: BBDO


Many Belgian musicians lack the funds to be able to create new music. To make their voices heard, the country's most famous artists re-recorded their most iconic hits and asked radio stations to play them. The intro sounded as usual, but suddenly the music disappeared. The lyrics were spoken instead of sung. A clear demonstration of what a songs sounds like if the artist is not able to rehearse, play, record or produce. Each song contained a message from the artist: “A song lyric is not music yet. Many musicians don’t have the funds rehearse, play, record or produce their music. Support them on Don’t do it for me, but for the K’s Choice / Clouseau / … of tomorrow.” The messages were played on Belgium's biggest radio stations.
