Stone Temple Pilots - Big Empty
"Big Empty" is one of my favourite STP tunes. It first appeared on The Crow soundtrack and I'll be hearing it again July 12 at Downsview Park. That's right, I caved and bought myself an over-priced ticket to Edgefest 2008.

City And Colour - Sleeping Sickness
I just got the new City and Colour album yesterday, but I've been spinning "Sleeping Sickness" for weeks. This track features guest vocals from The Tragically Hip's Gord Downie. Dallas Green and Gord Downie kill on this sweet little ditty.

Yes, I'm biased, but you are in Toronto Mike bias-ville.

Sublime - Doin' Time
We were spoiled these past few winters because I haven't shovelled snow like this in forever. It's not yet 10am and I'm exhausted from yet another winter workout.

There's one band that always makes me think of summer. "Doin' Time" even dives into "Summertime", so it's an ideal song when you're dreaming of sunny summer days.

Young MC - Louie Louie Remix with Maestro Fresh-Wes
As promised, this song was produced by Young MC back in 1990 and features Maestro Fresh-Wes on the mic. It was released to promote "Coupe de Ville", a charming little flick I highly recommend.

Europe - Final Countdown
This one is for George Oscar Bluth, or Gob as he's affectionately known. He uses this song as the backing music for his stage shows and now I can't hear it without thinking of him.

Did you know Europe are from Sweden? It's true, you can look it up.

Platinum Blonde - Standing in The Dark
Last night, during dodgeball, someone threw on a mix of 80s tunes. I heard Bon Jovi and Kenny Loggins and for some reason I started thinking about Platinum Blonde.

Platinum Blonde were huge in the mid-80s. I was listening to 680 CFTR and they played the crap out of "Cryin' Over You" and "Situation Critical". The Toronto Star used to print posters of CanCon acts each Saturday (or was it Sunday?) and I remember the Platinum Blonde poster well. I don't think it made it on to my bedroom wall, but I did collect these posters for a while. That will be our little secret...

Iggy Pop - The Passenger
I love this Iggy Pop tune. It's from his 1977 album Lust For Life which David Bowie helped write and produce.

Bonus Trivia: Iggy Pop's real name is James Newell Osterberg, Jr.

hHead - Happy

hHead - Happy
In 1993 I had a copy of the CFNY New Music Search 1993 compilation CD that I played over and over again. I loved this little track from Hayden called "Take", but the winning track belonged to hHead. This is that winning tune.

hHead dissolved in 1997 but Brendan Canning went on to form Broken Social Scene. He's the next star of the "Broken Social Scene Presents" series that gave us this awesome Kevin Drew song.

Stars - Ageless Beauty (Most Serene Republic RMX)
In the comments of this entry about Stars I promised Doug I'd share The Most Serene Republic Mix of "Ageless Beauty".

Do You Trust Your Friends? is an album full of Stars songs remixed by their musical buddies. In my humble opinion, this remix is better than the original.
