A nice little number by Boy (pun intended).  Actually a very catchy song called “Little Numbers”.  Find myself tapping the steering wheel when it came on during its stint on CBC.  The band is a duo, Valeska Steiner, the singer is from Switzerland and bassist Sonja Glass is German.  The song is off their 2011 début “Mutual Friends” and was released as a single in 2012.  Neither was released in North America until early 2013.  Enjoy the catchiness.

 

 

 

 

Song Of The Day – Ruth Moody – “Dancing In The Dark”

Could be an interesting covers post, but it is newly released and a good version of the Bruce Springstein classic “Dancing In The Dark”.  Ruth is an Australian born, current Canadian from Winnipeg (Go Jets Go) and a member of popular group, “The Wailin’ Jennys“.  The song is lifted from her 2103 solo effort “These Wilder Things”.  The folk/country rendition of this great song creates a completely different feel to the tune.  I really enjoyed the vocals.  Don’t forget to like my page on Facebook.

Bahamas, which is the stage name for Alfie Jurvanen, is a Toronto based musician who has played with people like Feist, Zeus and Jason Collett.  He has a couple of records to his credit as well as three Juno nominations.  The song I have posted is a nice folk ballad, performed live and acoustic.  A great song to just sit back and listen to with your eyes closed.  That’s a hint.

On a personal note, I now have a Facebook page for the blog.  Feel free to follow.  Have a great one.

Just a drive by post today.  Blog favourite (and Guapo fave) Fitz and the Tantrums doing a live performance of “Breakin’ The CHains Of Love”.  Great band, great song.  Have a great Monday evening.  Love the sax solo.

Alberta native Corb Lund is featured today (a few days late) as my Halloween choice for Song Of The Day.  Corb has been an Alberta favourite for many years.  Originally a punk rocker in the 1990’s, he moved to country/folk and has ridden success since.  I love the name of his band, The Hurtin’ Albertans.  He has 5 Juno nominations with 1 win and 25 Canadian Country Music association nominations with 11 victories.  This tune, “Dig Gravedigger Dig”is from his 2012 album “Cabin Fever”.   The song shows off his skill as a country singer and generates a pretty good official video.  As a commenter says, Canada’s version of Thriller.
