Jays To The Top


On Friday night, I heard "Jays To The Top" for the first time.  This was a song that appeared on the new and improved Blue Jays compilation that was released in 1991.  "Jays To The Top" was performed by my buddy Humble Howard Glassman back when he was at CFNY.

After a couple of listens, I was cringing at how bad this song was.  I started to think it might be a way for me to make a quick buck.  I left Humble Howard a voice mail in which I threatened to share this song with the world if he didn't pay me $10,000 in cash.  If he didn't cough up the coin, I'd release "Jays To The Top" to the masses and destroy any credibility he has left.

Humble called me this afternoon refusing to pay and daring me to share it.  He thinks it's pretty good, or at least not bad.  He informed me it was based on a 1974 hit by Reunion called "Life Is a Rock (But the Radio Rolled Me)" and he did the same sort of spoof for the Habs when he was working on the radio in Montreal.

Because Humble refused to pay, here's "Jays To The Top".  Maybe it's not as bad as I think it is...
