11 July 2024 - Candlebox - Turn Me Loose

Man, the pandemic gave us some wild covers.  Take this Loverboy cover by Candlebox.

Yes, two bands you were this close to forgetting. 

And yet, it's fire.  Straight fire.

8 July 2024 - Shania Twain - Coat of Many Colors

Let's see...

The song was written by Dolly Parton and was semiautobiographical.  I grew up with Dolly's version, as it was a favorite song of my mother.

But Shania Twain is Canadian.   "Coat of Many Colours?"

By the way, that uncredited background vocalist is big time Grammy Award-winning artist Alison Krauss.

1 July 2024 - Charlotte Cardin - Heaven

We want to wish every Canadian a very happy Canada Day.  

Which is why we're posting Charlotte Cardin doing a live cover of a Bryan Adams classic that is arguably better than the original.  This was performed by Cardin at the Canadian Songwriter's Hall of Fame induction ceremony for Adams and Jim Vallance, who co-wrote the song. 

This is incredible.
