Love_Inc._Broken_BonesThat day of the week again, musical throwback Thursday.  A few years ago did one of these posts on Love Inc. and their song You’re a Superstar.  Which is my favourite of theirs.  This time it’s my second favourite, Broken Bones.   Still have the cassette tape, Love Inc., which these songs are from. That was released in 1998.  You can give the song a listen > here or below.

Red_5_ForcesIt is the first musical throwback Thursday of a new year.  This pick is a song I have not heard in many, many years.  It is I Love You Stop by Red 5.  Couldn’t find much info.  Turns out the artist behind is called  Thomas Kukula.  It was released in 1997 as a single.  All so the album, Red 5 – Forces.  Think the song still sounds good today (minus the locals).  You can give it a watch/listen > here or below.

Every year there seems to be a new Christmas song.  Some not so great but then there are some the become and instant classic.  For example from the guy behind Corner Gas Animated they put one out called, Everyone Can Sing At Christmas. The song is very funny and so is the animated video.  Which you can check out for yourself > here or below.  From what I can remember there has only been one Corner Gas Christmas episode.  That being said there be one episode for season three.  Do believe it will air on December 14, 2020.
