Luv', other Dutch girl groups & friends on the Radio 10 Top 4000



Dutch station Radio 10 recently asked its listeners to vote for the "4000 greatest songs of all time". The Top 4000 was revealed earlier this month. Luv's signature song, "You're the Greatest Lover", peaked at #3043. This pop classic was initially released in 1978 (the year of Luv's breakthrough) and written by Hans van Hemert and Piet Souer.


Other acts associated with Luv' appear on the Top 4000:


  • "Hair" by Zen (1968) - produced by Hans van Hemert: #2059
