Canada’s All Time Top Songs – #100

The first entry into our top 100 is Honeymoon Suite and their song Love Changes Everything.

Back in the hair band days of the 1980’s, Honeymoon Suite was formed. The year was 1981 in Niagara Falls, Ontario. The band’s name and the place share a connection, very witty. They had a string of hits in Canada throughout the 80’s and even had some traction in the USA, highlighted by performing the title track for the movie Lethal Weapon.

Love Changes Everything was released in 1988 and is on their album Racing After Midnight. The song reached number 9 in Canada, 13 on the US Rock and 91 on the US chart, all by Billboard. The band is still recording, it’s latest release was in 2019.

Get ready to rock to a live version of the tune, live is always best.

The Maple List Number 1168 – The Danks

As I look for material, I was ecstatic to discover a comprehensive list of Canadian bands. Talk about material. Inspired by this, I am initiating a series that will be titled the Maple List (see what I did there, Whitelist, Blacklist, Maple List). This list and a random number generator will make this an interesting endeavour.

The initial post is this one, as last should be first. I present Number 1168 and last on the Maple List, The Danks.

The band is from Charlottetown in the province of Prince Edward Island. PEI is Canada’s smallest province and is an island off the north shore of New Brunswick. The band has 3 recordings, an EP called “Samples” in 2008, a full length debut, “Are You Afraid Of The Danks” in 2009 and their (maybe) final release “GANK” in 2013.

Some members of the band are also known for another Indie band “Two Hours Traffic”. We may randomly run into them at some point as well.

Very little online for them. I did find the following.

Bandcamp

Spotify

Apple Music

I am impressed with The Danks. Very catchy tunes, well written and played. I’ve included a couple of videos, which will give you a good feel for this band. Hoping for a reunion.

First is “In Alright” off the “Are You Afraid Of The Danks” debut.

Second is “Experimental Fiction” off their second album.
