Take Me To The Riot

musicOne of my favourite songs of the year is "Take Me To The Riot" from Stars. It's just a great little ditty. Here's the video.

The Stars are responsible for one of my favourite songs of all-time. I don't remember the last time I synced my iPod without including "Your Ex-Lover is Dead". The video is perfect for this time of year, full of ice and snow.

You likely know Stars best from their 2006 hit "Ageless Beauty". That's a great tune, although I prefer The Most Serene Republic Mix. Here's the video for the original.

They'll call Stars a Montreal band, but they were originally formed right here in Toronto. They've got a fantastic sound, don't they?

They have a great sound. In some of their songs they sound a little bit like The Smiths. Perhaps you could share one of their MP3's next Wednesday?

I shared Your Ex-Lover Is Dead back in 2005: http://www.torontomike.com/2005/12/weekly_mp3_101.html

That makes me think I was wrong about Ageless Beauty being a 2006 hit. It was probably a 2005 hit. I'll share the The Most Serene Republic Mix next Wednesday.
