Back from a “find the sun” weekend.  Man, what a crap summer this has been.  Enough whining, back to the business at hand, a song.  In this case a Canadian singer with huge world-wide influence, Ron Sexsmith.  Thirteen albums since 1991, recording since he was 21, first band at 14, huge stable of musical admirers.  These include, Chris Martin, Paul McCartney, Elton John and Elvis Costello.  His songs have been recorded by many as well.  His tune “Secret Heart” has been recorded by Feist, Rod Stewart and Nick Lowe, pretty diverse group.  Heard this tune while city in my usual discovery place, the driver seat of my car on the way to work (love Shazam, best app ever), and loved it.The song is from his latest album “Forever Endeavour”.  Nicely crafted song.  Enjoy.

Song Of The Day – No Good Woman by Elise LeGrow

I believe that if CBC2 did not exist, I would not have a blog.  This number is from Canadian songwriter, Toronto based Elise LeGrow.  The song, No Good Woman. reached number 6 on Nielsen’s Canadian Adult Contemporary chart in April 2012.  Not a new song, but new to me.  Her first album was released in December of 2012, and it includes this tune as well as songs written by Ron Sexsmith and Jon Levine.  A bit of a push??
