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 groups 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 :

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.”

Twice lead singer Jeongyeon looking in the window of Angel.

 

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 Desigual man collection for Fall-Winter 2017  is a bit darker than the summer 2017 line, with bold colour knit sweaters and surrealist imagery on T-shirts, shirts and sweatshirts.

There are also some solid-colour men’s jackets for fall, including a brown one that you’d swear was leather but is actually vegan leather, which has the advantage of being rainproof – perfect for Vancouver weather. And there are some men’s coats with knitted sleeves for fall, which look like you’re wearing a sweater under a vest-jacket. But the sleeves can zip off on one jacket, transforming into a vest.

Angel’s entire Desigual collection for Fall 2017 – for men, women and kids – is on sale at 20% off for a limited time.

Here’s what Angel has in stock for men so far, with more new arrivals expected soon:

Today’s music video is Bobcaygeon by Gord Downie, the lead singer-songwriter for much-loved Canadian band The Tragically Hip, who died today. He was 53. He was a friend of Canada’s Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, who became choked up when he discussed Downie’s passing.

Last year, Downie revealed he was diagnosed with glioblastoma, an incurable form of brain cancer. He and the Hip did a final national tour last year.
