There are songs that never made it to the top of the charts, yet are anchored in the collective memory of true music lovers. We call that ‘a classic’. Such a song is Tom Waits’ The Neighborhood. JP Den Tex wrote the Dutch lyrics and that’s how Aan de Rafelrand, became one of the highlights on the album De Vertalingen  (The Translations) by Prins, de Munnik & den Tex,
