Where is Canada anyway???

(Heh heh heh)

I am actually working on the new Toronto airport.

I still think Starseed is their only hit (down here south of the border at least!)

Adam's Mistress, I totally agree with your analysis, and I also love Sweet Jane by the cowboy junkies.

I'm surprised. Starseed isn't even their best song. Ah blarg

You're working on the new TO airport? Wait a sec, Toronto's getting a new airport?

Try to take into consideration that we're getting a global view here, so what was a one hit wonder band in the States isn't necessarily true for the UK or the rest of Europe or Australia.

You're right about Dire Straits though. They had a string of hits - Romeo and Juliet and Roller Girl to name a couple, not to mention the slew of well received songs from Brothers In Arms in the 1980's that actually made it's way onto fickle American radios. <--- a feat in itself. Not to mention that Money For Nothing video that was high tech in the computer graphics for the time that wowed audiences.

As for Jesus Jones, I think most people *know* it was more than one guy supposedly named 'Jesus Jones' (Ian and Mike, plus supporting musicians I think...) I just think with a band name that represents a singular entity/name, it's easy to get caught up in referring to the band as a one man show.


You have my total respect

Anyone else remember "Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm" by the Crash Test Dummies?

Or "Counting Blue Cars" (Tell me all your thoughts on God) by Dishwalla?

oh i got a beauty to add to this discussion.

Transvision Vamp - I Want Your Love

critically everyone HATED them, yet they churned out a hit in their time.


hey someone mentioned Eels earlier on in this discussion

there was a band named Eels that released an album in 2001 named Souljacker

im not entirely sure that they are the same group, having seen the video for Novacaine for the Soul recently and also seeing the video for Souljacker Pt1
