The Fortunes with a song by Fred Van Vught and B. Coeur. Filmed at several radio studio's across The Netherlands. It was the second of November 2004, a very special day in the recent history of The Netherlands with the killing of the director, filmmaker Theo van Gogh. The first part of the clip was recorded at Radio West, minutes after Theo van Gogh was killed. That gives this clip a very special touch for Dutch people: 'Trying to get over you' in an unplugged version.
