Patio Lanterns


I decided to wake up to EZ Rock this week so I could check out Humble Howard's new morning show.  Today my alarm went off while Kim Mitchell was singing "Patio Lanterns".

In 1986 I couldn't escape that song.  It was everywhere.  It was on high rotation on 680 CFTR, the video was played continuously and it was so damn catchy you couldn't help but sing it early and often.

It was sweet nostalgia waking up to this tune this morning.  I was twelve years old again, without the acne and braces, but my voice was pretty much the same!
