Music Monday – “Let’s go make some history/Before we fall apart/True love might escape us, girl/But at least we got some heart”

“A Million Dollars” – Joel Plaskett

Music Monday – “I just wanna Rolly Rolly Rolly with a dab of ranch/I already got some designer to hold up my pants/I just want some ice on my wrist so I look better when I dance/Have you lookin’ at it, put you in a trance”

Not the most traditional campfire song but here’s another Music Monday song that we’re hearing a lot at our seasonal campsite thanks to Pace who’s a bit more plugged into current music trends than I am. ūüėČ (One fun highlight of our most recent weekend was watching him create various playlists on our streaming music […]

Music Monday – “From nine till five I have to spend my time at work/The job is very boring, I’m an office clerk/The only thing that helps me pass the time away/Is knowing I’ll be back at Echo Beach some day.”

Another unofficial theme for our seasonal camp site at Echo Valley Campground, especially after last weekend when we hit Echo Beach a couple times… “Echo Beach” – Martha and the Muffins

Music Monday – “Cause every time you wind up all alone/It’s on/You’re showing up and blowing up my phone/Go home/You’re drunk”

Found this song on a random “New Country” playlist on Deezer and it quickly went on repeat on my bluetooth speaker while camping the past few days… “You’re Drunk” – Brandy Clark

Music Monday – “Pancho was a bandit boys/His horse was fast as polished steel/He wore his gun outside his pants/For all the honest world to feel”

“Pancho and Lefty” – Townes Van Zandt

Music Monday – “What’s the harm in meeting me/800 block of Robinson Street/I’ll be in town for a weekend stay”

Blake Berglund is my unofficial campground theme music this summer. This past weekend, his “Coyote” album was the first one I played when we arrived and the last one I played when we left! And here’s the lead-off song from that album which is such a great way to draw you into the album… “Come […]

Music Monday – “It’s Canada Day up Canada way on the first day of July/And we’re shoutin’ “hooray” up Canada way, when the maple leaf flies high.”

Is there any musician that defines Canada more than Stompin’ Tom? ¬†And is there a better song to post on this long weekend of Canada’s 150th Anniversary? “Canada Day Up Canada Way” – Stompin’ Tom Connors

Music Monday – “She’s learning how to surf/Going with the flow/Peace out from San Diego/She is letting me go”

One of my favourites, Sam Baker, has another album that he just released last week. It’s already¬†getting rave reviews¬†from many quarters. “Peace Out” – Sam Baker

Sometimes I Forget I Have A Blog…

…usually after a weekend of camping. Here’s some “catch-up” posts… Saturday Snap – Skateboard Mods Pace modified his penny board with duct tape and glow sticks (and after we got home, more permanently with some spray paint I got him to decorate the ramp his grandpa built him!) Secular Sunday More than half of Canadians […]

Music Monday – “So I’m a free enterprising socialist/Gonna take my cut and share the rest/Left wing as the right wing gets/I’ll vote ’em in for the test”

Really enjoying Blake Berglund¬†on my “Saskatchewan-artists-only” playlist at our seasonal site at Echo Valley Provincial Park. (I’m a bit late to the game but in looking more into Berglund for this post, I see that he’s just completed a personal challenge to sell 1000 copies of his albums in the month of May, mostly through […]
