Vancouver Canucks Song: It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye – Zack, Kevin, and Eddie

In the span of one week, the Vancouver Canucks traded away three popular players: defenceman Kevin Bieksa, goalie Eddie Lack, and forward Zack Kassian. In fact, we had this song written for just Bieksa and Lack when we found out that Kassian had been traded…while we were preparing to shoot this video. Thus, we were able to add him albeit at the last minute.

To pay tribute to these three players, we went with a Boyz II Men classic: It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday. This is actually the third Boyz II Men song we’ve covered for the Canucks.

I’m joined by regular collaborators Marie Hui and Arielle Tuliao. As well, we welcome newlyweds Joseph and Marion San Jose, fresh off of their honeymoon to Rome where they gave a Canucks jersey to Pope Francis (with his name on it).  You may have heard about it.

 

2014 Canucks Christmas Carols

Just in time for Christmas, Marie and I proudly present to you a special compilation of custom Canucks Christmas carols. Hear new takes on old classics like Hansen the Honey Badger (Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer), Radim Vrbata (Feliz Navidad), Get it Bo! (Let it Snow!), This Christmas, and Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas.

We were absolutely thrilled to work with the Vancouver Canucks on this project and are extremely grateful for the opportunity and for their trust. Special shout out to Paul Albi (@AlbiJr) for all his hard work to make this happen.

Also, big thanks to Chris Golden (@lyteforce) and his silky smooth voice for being our host. He’s perfect for the part!

And it goes without saying that – as usual – the big star here is Marie (@mariehui). She can make anything sound good!

Vancouver Canucks – I’ll Show Glove to You (Boyz II Men Parody)

For the start of the Vancouver Canucks’ 2014-2015 NHL season, I wrote a song about likely their strongest position on the team: the goaltenders.

Thus, I proudly present our ode to Ryan Miller and Eddie Lack called “I’ll Show Glove to You” based on Boyz II Men’s smash hit “I’ll Make Love to You.”

I’m joined by three lovely ladies would give Destiny’s Child a run for their money:

Marie Hui (fresh off her return from Seattle’s CenturyLink Field where she sang the anthems for the Seahawks-Broncos game): @mariehui

Arielle Tuliao (as an actress, dancer, and singer she is a true triple-threat): @ajtuliao

When Musical Bloggers Unite: Someone Like Lu

Harrison, Marie, and Clay
Harrison, Marie, and Clay

A couple of weeks ago, CHB favourite Marie Hui and I put together a tribute song to Roberto Luongo when he was traded to the Florida Panthers. We performed Boyz II Men’s smash hit “End of the Road“.

Well, it seems like I’m not the only blogger who likes to write songs about Bobby Lu. Harrison Mooney of Pass it to Bulis penned a farewell song to Luongo to the tune of Adele’s mega-hit “Someone Like You.” Harrison contacted me to help him with the music and within 5 seconds we had agreed to invite Marie to join us.

The result is a powerful and emotional song, courtesy of Pass it to Canucks Hockey Blog.

End of the Road (We Thank You, Lu) – Farewell to Roberto Luongo

After eight memorable and exciting seasons with the Vancouver Canucks, goaltender Roberto Luongo was traded to the Florida Panthers on March 4, 2014.

Thus, Marie (www.mariehui.com, @mariehui on Twitter) and I wanted to bid Bobby Lu a proper farewell.  Inspired by Boyz II Men, we proudly present our version of their smash hit “End of the Road”.

Make sure you get to bridge of the song at the 3:11 mark…you won’t be disappointed.
