New Old Music

I swear, my brain doesn't work at times. Not only have I forgotten about this song for years, but I also had to find it again through a bad film that I watched on TV… It had a Disney Channel star in it, don't judge me. No wonder it was on at 2AM in the morning...

DJ Champion - No Heaven

Despite the fact that I heard the song in a movie called Prom Wars, this use to be on the radio all the time, on heavy rotation. He is a Canadian DJ who has gotten recognition with this song. I believe this is his only hit song, and couldn't find any other songs that he made. What a shame, it's so good. I love it when that Rock vibe is added to a Dance tune (then again, any genre with Dance mixed in makes it good). So here's to the forgotten song from 2006, and hopefully I will never forget it again. I mean, have you heard the song?! It's got attitude and sex appeal all under 4 minutes. Now that's good.

New Old Music

Once again, that song you completely forgot about, only to be re-introduced to it by unusual happenings… By that, I mean usually the 'random' button on the playlist, or from your brother in this case. So without adieu, let's get to remembering this song!

Lucy Pearl - Dance Tonight

So how does this happen: listening to this song all of last year (or the year before that) non-stop, and it eventually lead me to download the whole album just for the one song… Fast forward to today, and my brother re-intoduces this song to me while blasting it out of his speakers. But if I did pay attention to any memories of my childhood, I would have known that this song comes from the movie Love & Basketball, one of my cousin's favourite movie. It's amazing that this came out in 2000, and it's still gold. Goes to show that some films get it right with the soundtrack.

New Old Music

I think this month will be dedicated to the songs I forgot that existed. This is what happens when new music is constantly coming out: you forget about the goodies that were already here. Oy vey, me and my curious allows my music library to slip out the outstanding pieces...

Kuba Oms - Electrolove

A little funky, with such a refreshing outcome. It's different from other songs, it stands out on its own. What I love about it is the refrain, the guitar  is a surprising twist to the lounge vibe it creates. What ever happened to this man? This song was always on the radio, and then it disappeared. So when I heard it on Galaxy (TV channel, only audio), I got that excited feeling just when I first heard it two years ago. An excellent example of good music that can never die. He better release something in the future.

New Old Music

Why don't Canadians appreciate Canadian music? I mean, there are so many talented people in this country, yet I don't ever hear enough songs that dominate the radio stations I usually listen to. So when this came on, I was pleasantly surprised that upon discovery, this artist is also Canadian. Score.

Matthew Barber - Soft One

Not exactly sure how old this song is, but I'm going to guess it's almost 10? Based on the comments left on the video, some people were searching for it a long time ago. All I was doing was looking for a song I wasn't sick of on the radio. It's always interesting to get that random song you've never heard about and start listening to it. I think there should be a rule for every 3 or 4 songs that they often play on the station, an old Canadian song must be played. That way, people get to know what else is out there (can't always stay by the computer and find out good music that way!)
