I went to the movies in November last year to check out the latest film by Jan Verheyen, “Vermist” (Missing). The reason was quite selfish: I wanted to see my name in lights. Composer Steve Willaert had contacted me during the summer to write some lyrics for a song he was writing for it. I was happy to oblige…
“Vermist” is a thriller about a missing 16 year-old that was living a double life. The cops fall into a network of prostitution and have to deal with an invasive father. It features two of Flanders’ rising stars, Koen De Bouw and Kevin Janssens. Chantal Kashala (the video lists her as Kalasha, which is wrong) sang the track, called “Waiting”. I’ll post more about her later.
This is not the first time stuff of mine has been used in films, but it is the first I have actually written a song specifically for a movie (the closest I got before that was writing a song for a soya drink).
Drop me a note below if you like the track or want to know more.
