Old Man – Jasmijn
"I usually don’t do covers, but this song is an exception. This remake of Neil Young’s ‘Old Man’ is dedicated to a Scottish man I met in Berlin. He told me wonderful stories and I will never forget him.
I went to Berlin for two weeks and I saw him at a random grocery store. He was a really old man, like 90 years old, so I helped him pack his groceries. This man was very greatful to me and for some reason I kept thinking about him. He seemed very interesting and I just wanted to have a conversation with this guy. I even spoke with my friends about meeting him but I thought I would never meet such a unique person in a city like Berlin again. Guess what, a few days later I bumped into him at the rail station. I invited him to have a drink with me at a bar and we talked for like three hours! This special moment will stay with me forever.
I wanted to write a song for this man, but Neil Young already did. Altough I'm not a person who likes to cover songs, I couldn't let this song slip through my fingers.
There’s only one problem: I’d love to share this song with him, but I can’t find him anywhere. I’m not even sure I heard his name right cause of his accent. But I think his name was Edwin. He has a wife and kids, so I thought I might find one of his kids online.
So I’m calling out to everyone, especially in Berlin or Scotland, to help me find him. You can share this video or just tell your family and friends about it. Who knows, maybe he and I will meet again."
