Today’s music is Aloe Blacc singing I Need A Dollar. He might be best known for his vocals on the late Avicci’s massive hit Wake Me Up.

Like horns? This is a Seattle band, the True Loves (you’ll recognize the drummer and guitarist from another Seattle band, D-Lo 3, aka the Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio).

And lastly, here’s a video by Canadian band Walk Off The Earth, who lost a band member this week: Mike Taylor, known as the mysterious Beard Man, died in his sleep last month, of natural causes He was also father of two teenagers, a hockey coach and business owner. He was only 51. This is the band’s tribute to him:

This is how the band became famous, but tried a reprise without Beard Man, replaced by the incredibly talented Scott Helman; Sarah Blackwood (the blonde here) was 8 months pregnant & went into labour during the filming of this video:

The band had this instrument built for this video, Girls Like You:

Since this is Boxing Day, here’s Simon & Garfunkel singing a live version of The Boxer:

I met David Lindley when he was playing the Town Pump in Gastown some years ago. He sang Ain’t No Way Baby and I thought he had created a whole new genre, but I wasn’t sure what it was. I did know what it wasn’t:

He used to play slide guitar and sing falsetto with Jackson Browne:

I asked the gurl what she wanted to be / She said baby can’t you see / I wanna be fanous, as far as the screen / But you can do something in between (chorus) Baby you can drive my car / If I’m gonna be a star….

Sigala: Gimme Your Love:

When I first heard this tune on the radio, Girls Like You, I thought it was a Cardi B song, since she does a rap @2:58 (she also co-wrote the song). I didn’t realize the male voice was Adam Levine of Maroon 5. The video features a disappearing act of women (Adam also disappears at 3:27). In order of appearance:  Camila Cabello, Phoebe Robinson, Aly Raisman, Sarah Silverman, Gal Gadot, Lilly Singh, Amani Al-Khatahtbeh, Trace Lysette, Tiffany Haddish, Angy Rivera, Franchesca Ramsey, Millie Bobby Brown, Ellen DeGeneres, Jennifer Lopez, Chloe Kim, Alex Morgan, Mary J. Blige, Beanie Feldstein, Jackie Fielder, Danica Patrick, Ilhan Omar, Elizabeth Banks, Ashley Graham, and Rita Ora. It ends with Levine joined by his wife, South African model Behati Prinsloo (who was featured years ago in a Desigual video shot on the salt flats of Argentina) & their daughter Dusty:

Chromeo, my fave Canadian Jew-Arab funk duo from Montreal, has a new video:

And here’s a song, Broken, that hit No. 1 on alternative radio and now just hit No. 1 on Top 40. By Los Angeles trio loveleytheband. The song’s message is “It’s okay to not be okay.” The opening keyboard notes sound like a five-year-old. Maybe that’s the appeal:

Lead singer-songwriter Mitchy Collins said in a recent interview that he deals with “pretty bad depression” at times. But the band is currently riding a wave of success. (Depression is very treatable – talk to your friends, your family, support group or contact your doctor.) Here’s the Kids Help Line: 1-800-668-6868.

I love dance videos. I also love Jackie Wilson.This video that melds the two:

And in 1956, Frankie Lymon wrote and performed this song, when rock n roll was new:

Three years later, in 1959, The Clovers sang Love Potion No. 9, and Doo Wop exploded:

Nine years later, this happened:

The amazing part about this song, All Along the Watchtower, was that Jimi recorded this  two months after Bob Dylan released his pastoral version on the album John Wesley Harding. Bob’s version was rather sedate compared to Jimi’s version. After Jimi died, Bob said, he always sang Jimi’s version. If you want to know the gentle soul that Jimi was, watch this rare acoustic version of

Here’s a rare recording of Jimi Hendrix on acoustic guitar. We love Jimi’s fashion sense – he certainly had his own style and wasn’t afraid of colourful clothing:

This is Kokoroko, a young, London-based Afrobeat eight-piece band led by trumpeter
Sheila Maurice-Grey:

This is the Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio (love the Hammond B3 organ & Leslie speaker):

Randy Bachman played this song from the Doo Wop era on his CBC radio show; the song was produced by Phil Spector:

300 million-plus have looked at my window in 2018

This shot of my store window is a screen grab from the K-pop music video Likely by South Korean “girl” group Twice.

A year ago, a film crew and a bunch of young women arrived at our store to shoot a music video. The young man in charge explained that the “girls” were a K-pop group from South Korea. He didn’t mention their name. They spent a couple of hours shooting outside and inside my store, and the young women danced in Maple Tree Square outside my store.

About a month later, I got an email from a friend, asking if I had seen this new video that featured my store. He sent me the link to the video, which had been released hours earlier but already had six million hits. It was called Likey by a group called Twice. It was a catchy tune and the video was shot entirely in Vancouver.

That first day, I would check back every few hours and was amazed to watch the numbers of viewers climb: 7 million only 30 minutes later, then 10 million a few hours later and 21 million views within 48 hours. It reached 100 million after only 33 days, a new record for a Korean group.

Now, one year after it was released, the Likey video now has been watched 318 million times (a number that will be out of date by the time you read this).

The video also spawned kids from South Korea gathering in front of my store window to pose. We had two young women yesterday, taking photos. This summer, an older man came into my store and said: “This store is very famous in Korea.”

We even has some young Mexican men come in the store and start asking questions. “Did you meet them?” one of them asked. “How tall are they?”

Twice lead singer Jeongyeon looking in the window of Angel.

Here’s the video, released Oct. 30, 2017:

Here’s a music video filmed in Vancouver in 1978 by Elvis Costello & the Attractions:

The song was written in 1974 by Nick Lowe, who recently played in Vancouver with Los Straightjackets:

Lowe is a great songwriter who has written about 400 tunes. His only big hit came in 1979:

Nick started another song in 1979, The Beast in Me, which he wrote for his then father-in-law, Johnny Cash (at the time, Lowe was married to Cash’s stepdaughter, Carlene Carter). But Lowe didn’t finish the song for another 12 years. This is Lowe’s demo, which he sent to Cash, who recorded the song in 1994 (the Johnny Cash version is here):

Ten years ago, Lowe appeared on a Canadian TV show called Spectacle hosted by Elvis Costello, where Nick recalled the disaster when he first played the song for Johnny Cash. Those guys in the shadows are former drummer of The Band, Levon Helm, and on the far right guitarist Richard Thompson.
