Today’s music is Oh Happy Day by the Edwin Hawkins Singers, recorded in 1969. It was recorded on a two-track machine and was originally intended as a fundraiser for a gospel competition, until a local deejay started playing it and it was released as a single, becoming a surprise hit of the psychedelic Sixties. Hawkins, 74, died last week.

South African jazz musician Hugh Masekala, 78, also died this week. He performed in 1967 at the Monterey Pop Music Festival along with Jimi Hendrix, Otis Redding, The Who, Janis Joplin, Ravi Shankar, and others. The next year, Masekela’s instrumental Grazing in the Grass was released and hit No. 1 in North America and internationally.

We also recently lost Dolores O’Riordan, 46, the lead singer for Irish band The Cranberries. She died at a London hotel last week but lived part of each year in Canada.

She was pleased that Eminem had sampled her vocals for his new song, In Your Head:

The day O’Riordan died, she was supposed to record a new version of Zombie with heavy-metal supergroup Bad Wolves. The band considered shelving the song after she died, but have now decided to release it and donate the sales proceeds to O’Riordan’s three children:

Today’s music is New Year’s Day by Irish rockers U2, released 35 years ago this month:

And here’s a new video of a 2015 song by Vancouver’s Bryan Adams, dressed as Elvis (along with his other bandmates). It was filmed in Madrid, Spain. Bryan lives in London now but returns to Vancouver to visit his Warehouse Studio, which is a block east of our Gastown store:

This is a new song by Bryan, Please Stay, with Planet Head people:

And here’s a new song by another Canadian, Vancouver music producer and DJ Taelor Deitcher, best known by his stage name Felix Cartal, who used to live in Gastown. The tune is an EDM version of the 1998 New Radicals hit, You Get What You Give:

The dance version leaves out this lyric that trash-talked several popular bands in 1998: “Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson/Courtney Love and Marilyn Manson/You’re all fakes, run to your mansions/Come around, we’ll kick your asses!” Marilyn Mason expressed his anger over the lyric. Gregg Alexander, the lead singer-songwriter for the New Radicals, broke up the band at the peak of their success in 1999. He went on to write songs for other artists, including co-writing Santana’s hit The Game of Love, for which he won a Grammy award in 2003 (his pseudonym at the time was Alex Ander). Listen to Gregg Alexander’s demo of the song here. More recently, Alexander co-wrote Lost Stars for the film Begin Again, starring Maroon 5’s Adam Levine and Keira Knightley; the song was in the running for an Oscar in 2015. (Gregg’s live acoustic versions of the song are here and here.) After the movie was released in 2013, Alexander broke his silence and did his first interview in 15 years.

And here’s Vancouver singer Michael Bublé with jazzy versions of Christmas standards, with a new burning-log fireplace video:

You don’t often see Bob Dylan dance, but he did in this polka version of Must Be Santa:

From 1960: Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas by Ella Fitzgerald:

Here’s Swingin’ Them Jingle Bells from 81 years ago by Thomas “Fats” Waller:

Just before Christmas 57 years ago – in 1960 – Berry Gordy Jr. released Shop Around by his first hit-making group, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles:

One of the Miracles, Pete Moore, died last month in Las Vegas. He co-wrote with Robinson two of the group’s greatest songs, both released in 1965 – Ooo Baby Baby, and Tracks of My Tears. The latter song was inspired by the sad clown from the Italian opera Pagliacci, as was the group’s 1970 hit, The Tears of a Clown. Stevie Wonder wrote the music for Tears of a Clown, but asked Robinson if he could come up with some lyrics.

Ten years later, Linda Ronstadt had a huge hit with this version:

This is Lily Winwood, backed by her father, Steve Winwood, performing Higher Love:

The song was a big hit for Steve Winwood in the 1980s:

Steve Winwood is a former member of the Spencer Davis Group and Traffic. In 1969, he formed a supergroup with Eric Clapton called Blind Faith. One of their best songs, Can’t Find My Way Home, was written by Winwood. Here is a live version from 2007 with Clapton and guitarists Derek Trucks and Doyle Bramhall II who plays left-handed like Jimi Hendrix, who spent some time in Vancouver:

Here is a more recent solo acoustic version by Mr. Winwood:

And here’s the 1969 studio version by Blind Faith, which included band members Ginger Baker, who had been a member of Cream with Clapton, and Ric Grech:

Blind Faith played its first concert in London’s Hyde Park in 1969:
