Daily Tonality: Song of the Day 01/15/2018

January 15, 2018

Today’s Daily Tonality is brought to you by the radio at work. I heard this song and thought it was perfect for song of the day.

Men Without Hats – Pop Goes The World (from the album Pop Goes The World, 1987) Men Without Hats are a Canadian synth-pop based band which formed late in 1979, in Montreal. This is one of those bands that instantly take me back to a time when I was a young kid, just starting to develop my taste in music and appreciate radio. This is a happy sounding song that immediately gets stuck in your head. So for nostalgia sake, have a listen, get it stuck on repeat in your brain, and have a good time. Don’t say I never did anything for you.

Little Fact – The name of the band came from the band members’ refusal to wear warm hats during winter, choosing style over comfort. Thus we have Men Without Hats.

“Till there are no stars shining up in heaven,
Till there are no stars any more”

The Tragically Hip – Fireworks (from the album Phantom Power, 1998 Universal Music Canada) A lovely, legendary career was celebrated in Kingston, Ontario last night. The iconic band from my home land; The Tragically Hip (or if you are a Canuck, simply The Hip) played the final show of their Man Machine Poem tour. If you are Canadian, you know what this band has meant to this country. For those who don’t, it’s a shame you did not get antiquated. Thank you Hip. You embraced the character and culture of Canada, and in turn, we embraced you.
