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, staring Maroon 5’s Adam Levine and Keira Knightley; the song was in the running for an Oscar in 2015. (Gregg’s solo vocal of the song is here.) After the movie was released in 2013, Alexander broke his silence and did his first interview in 15 years.

Today’s music is the same as last Christmas: River by Canadian icon Joni Mitchell:

While not a Christmas song, River evokes the spirit of the season. The song is from Blue:

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:

In keeping with the blackness of Black Friday, here are my two favourite black-themed songs, both from 1966. The first is Paint it Black by the Rolling Stones, featuring Stones member Brian Jones on the sitar and Mick with a poofy haircut:

The second is Black is Black by Spanish band Los Bravos:

Here’s another Stones song, Sweet Black Angel, recorded in 1970 but not released until 1972’s Exile On Main Street album. One of the Stones’ most overtly political  songs, it was about black activist/feminist Angela Davis, a University of California professor who at the time of the Stones recording was in jail accused of conspiracy in four murder counts.  Davis was eventually acquitted by an all-white jury and resumed teaching at UCLA.

The lovely Della Reese, who died earlier this week, played a sweet black angel on the long-running TV series Touched by An Angel. Her biggest hit came in 1959 with the release of Don’t You Know, which adapted Musetta’s Waltz, an aria from Puccini‘s opera La Bohème. But her voice was simply angelic on this 1960 recording, These Foolish Things (Remind Me of You):

When I first heard this song on the radio, I thought a woman sang it, until I watched the live video. Portugal.TheMan is a band from Portland, Oregon, which is 508 kilomtres Due South from Vancouver, Canada. The city’s unofficial motto: Keep Portland Weird.

Brooklyn’s High & Mighty Brass does a punchy version. Here’s the ZHU dance Remix:

This is Juice by Chromeo, a Canadian electro-funk duo from Montreal. One is a Jew, the other an Arab. In Canada, we can laugh at our differences and similarities, which in this song is a penchant for orange high heels and black leather mini skirts (their new album is called Head Over Heels):

Chromeo’s lead singer and guitarist, David Macklovitch, has a sideline gig: He’s also a university professor in New York — he has taught French and French literature at Columbia University and Barnard College… And here’s the latest hit by another Canadian, 22-year-old Scott Helman, which has a bit of a Bo Diddley beat:

21 million people (and counting) have seen Angel’s store window in 48 hours

Jeongyeon, lead singer of the Korean pop group Twice, looking in the window of Angel. From the music video “Likey,” which was released Monday and already has more than 21 million hits.

It’s not every day that you get 21 million people looking at your store window in 48 hours. But thanks to a new music video by the nine-woman South Korean K-pop group Twice, which posted the video for Likey on YouTube at 6 p.m. on Monday, Angel has received amazing worldwide exposure that is growing by the minute.

The camera crew also filmed inside our store, shooting Twice lead singer Jeongyeon looking inside Angel while singing: “There are so many pretty things to wear.”

The video was shot entirely in Vancouver and its suburbs, featuring the Gastown Steam Clock, the Europe Hotel in Maple Tree Square (Angel is located on the corner of the square), some of the other local Gastown shops, a back alley in Gastown, Stanley Park, the White Rock pier, a Steveston gas station and some residential streets:

The website Inside Vancouver did a piece on eight Vancouver locations featured in the video, including Angel. ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
