Chicane_featuring_Bryan_Adams_Don't_Give_UpTime again for musical throwback Thursday.  The pick this week is another one I haven’t heard in a very long time.  It is Don’t Give Up by Chicane featuring Bryan Adams.  Remember hearing this for the first time thinking this pretty cool.  Something you wouldn’t guess Bryan Adams would do, singing on a dance type song.  It is off the album Behind the Sun, released in 2000.  You can give it a watch/listen > here or below.

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.

This will be the last musical throwback Thursday to go before Christmas.  So am picking my all time favourite (since 2013) for the song this week.  It is I Heard The Bells on Christmas Day done by Johnny Reid.  This is off his album A Christmas Gift to You.  This became my favourite the first time I heard it.  Which was on a TV special of the same name.  The full album is prefect.  There is a full playlist > here.  A for this song you can hear it > here or below.

A_Christmas_Story_SoundtrackNow that it is December.  It is time for Christmas themed musical throwback Thursday.  My all time favourite movie is A Christmas Story.  Lost track of how many times I have watched this.  Then the end credits roll on the shot of the house with a light snow fall there is a song playing.  It sounds like Wish you a Merry Christmas.  On the official soundtrack they call it Glorious Beautiful Christmas.  You can give it a listen > here or below.

Chantal_Kreviazuk_SurroundedThat day of the week again, musical throwback Thursday.  The pick this week is Surrounded by Chantal Kreviazuk.  She was on TV doing an interview so my not pick one of her best songs.  Which happens to be off her debut album, Under These Rocks and Stones, released in 1997. The music video, which you can see > here or below is a bit dated,  but the song is really good.

Bonnie_Tyler_Total_Eclipse_Of_The_HeartOnce again it is musical throwback Thursday.  While trying to coming up with a song to pick stumbled on Total Eclipse of the Heat by Bonnie Tyler. Haven’t heard this song in years, unless you count the version they sang in Shrek 2.  This song was always on the radio when I was a kid.  They all so played it a lot at the rink when we had school skating days.  Never seen the music video until writing this post.  It very odd but the song holds up well.  It is off her 1983 album Faster Than the Speed of Night.  You can give it a watch/listen > here or below.

Mark_Morrison_Return_Of_The MackThat day of the week again, musical throwback Thursday.  The pick this time is a 90’s classic Return Of The Mack by Mark Morrison.  It is off his 1996 album of the same name, Return of the Mack.  Can remember hearing it all the time back then.  Then kind of forgot all about it.  The song has made a bit coming back this past year being use in advertising.  Do think it holds up well.  You can give it a watch/listen > here or below.
