Fun Music Friday

It’s been way too long since I’ve done one of these.

Basically, I’m a very musical person at heart. I’m a former club DJ and former university radio station program director who still leaves, breathes, and loves music each and every day. It’s a passion for me…not just a past time.

So with this said, let’s try to re-start a “Fun Music Friday”…which is just a collection of songs that I want to listen to that will help jump-start my weekend. And hopefully you’ll find a song or two that you’ve never heard before…

Fortune teller’s heart – Slowcoaster

This is a band from Sydney, Nova Scotia that is becoming more and more popular in the area thanks to radio stations picking them up. You’ve probably never heard of them or of this song, so give it a listen. I think you’ll enjoy it.

Rude – MAGIC!

This is another Canadian band and, quite honestly, the video’s a little on the cheesy side. But one or two listens to this reggae-pop song and you’ll be singing right along to the lyrics.

Odds Are – Barenaked Ladies

A lot of people outside of Canada forget that these guys are still releasing good music. The song is catchy and the video is a hoot. I think you’ll like it!

Doesn’t Really Matter – Platinum Blonde

Sunshine and I recently purchased tickets to see this 80’s band in concert. We’re both looking forward to it and this is one of my favourite songs of theirs.

Forget It In A Day – Nicolas Megalis

You might remember this guy from his infectiously entertaining Vine videos (like this one), but he’s got a single out now that I absolutely love. It’s quirky and different and unlike the pop music that’s out there now. Give it a shot!

**********

That’s all I’ve got for this Friday. I hope you end up having a great weekend!!
