#weetjenog #muziek #muziekexpres The content of Muziek Expres mainly consisted of articles about and interviews with the artists that were popular at that time. Conversely, a reportage in the magazine could also lead to a sudden increase in record sales. Many teenage rooms were wallpapered with the posters from the magazine. Every month lyrics were printed of some songs that were high in the hit parade. This was eagerly used by artists and bands. Although the name of the music publishing house was neatly printed among the texts, most of the texts were reproduced by ear by the editors of the magazine. This sometimes led to strange results. For example, in 1965 the beginning line of We've gotta get out of this place by The Animals was printed as: “In the studio part of the city” where it was supposed to be “In this dirty old part of the city”. The result was that in many dancings and parish rooms hits with defective “Music Express lyrics” were performed. From 1960 the magazine also published the programming of Radio Veronica. Veronica diskjockey Joost den Draaijer had his own section in the magazine between 1961 and 1964. From June 1958, “ME” printed its own (monthly) hit parade. Their popularity fell in the mid-1960s when weekly charts came up, such as the Time For Teenagers Top 10, the Parool Top 20 and the Veronica Top 40, of which free printed copies were distributed every Friday.
