Changes

It’s all about focus. I started this with a vision of Canadian content. Obviously, if you read my meanderings, I have strayed considerably from that intent.

Canadian artists are huge stars and known worldwide, Drake, Weeknd, Neil Young, Lindsay Ell, Colter Wall, Shania Twain, Celine Dion, Micheal Buble, Rush, Joni Mitchell. Astounding amount of talent.

Going forward, you can read and listen to classic, current and new music from Canadians. Hope you drop by.

Canada’s All Time Top Songs – #99

At 99 we present We Run by Strange Advance. A Vancouver new wave band, they formed in 1982, and were almost immediately nominated for a Juno (Canada’s Grammy) as most promising band in 1983. We Run was taken from their album, 2WO and released as a single in 1985. It reached number 28 on the RPM pop chart. The band never made strides outside of Canada. In addition, the were mostly a session band and apparently had never played live prior to 1985.

They only released 3 albums overall and essentially went dormant after releasing the 3rd in 1988.

Canada’s All Time Top Songs – #100

The first entry into our top 100 is Honeymoon Suite and their song Love Changes Everything.

Back in the hair band days of the 1980’s, Honeymoon Suite was formed in 1981 in Niagara Falls, Ontario. The name and the place share a connection, very witty. They had a string of hits in Canada throughout the 80’s and even had some traction in the USA, highlighted by performing the title track for the movie Lethal Weapon.

Love Changes Everything was released in 1988 and is on their album Racing After Midnight. The song reached number 9 in Canada, 13 on the US Rock and 91 on the US chart, all by Billboard. The band is still recording, it’s latest release was in 2019.

Get ready to rock to a live version of the tune, live is always best.
