I have always loved music. From my first little green record player playing Donny Osmond albums, I have been obsessed with listening to music. Hopefully my Music Club is a chance for me to share songs that I love and hopefully help you discover new music or bring back amazing memories. Click here for my list to date.
I have seen The Killers twice in concert. The second time I went I took five teenage boys to Vancouver to see it. Rush seating on the floor. I haven’t done a concert like that for years. So I stayed at the back in front of the sound crew (which is the best spot for hearing the music) and sent the kids in to the pit. Think I enjoyed the concert more than they did. And I got offered drinks and pot by old guys attending the concert. Pretty funny when I told them no, I was here with my kids.
This is the first song I heard from The Killers, but they have lots of great songs.

I started following Sarah McLachlan very early in her career. I can’t even count how many times I have seen her since. Today is my birthday, and because I saw her live again last night in Victoria, I wanted to highlight this song, “I Will Remember You”. Probably one of my top 10 songs ever. Especially the live version on Mirrorball. Since 1999 I have been telling all close to me that this is the song I want played at my funeral. Bit morbid to announce that to everyone on my birthday, but I do love it.
Since I’m off to see Sarah McLachlan in concert tonight, I had to post this song. It is always a crowd favourite for mass participation. I love her concerts. I’ve lost track of how many I have seen, but most be well over a dozen times, dating back to the 1980s. Always know I will come away seeing an amazing artist in her element.
With my birthday coming up I had to bring out this album. This album was released in 1977. As was the Grease soundtrack. Both were double albums, so they cost more. I had to chose which one I wanted for my birthday. I’m pretty sure I asked for this album and later went out and bought Grease, as I still have them both in my record collection.
This is a good media story on the Bee Gees. Makes you remember how many songs they have made over the years.

Call Me by Blondie was used in the movie American Gigolo when it came out in 1980. I had a crush on Richard Gere, but I wasn’t allowed to see the movie. They must have played it in the trailers on TV because I have always thought of this song with the movie. Released 1980.
