This season will be an important one for Linden Vey.
Penciled in as the fourth-line centre for the Canucks heading into the regular season, Vey has a lot to prove after signing a one-year, one million dollar deal with the club this summer. The team had high hopes for him when they traded a second-round pick to the Kings for him in the summer of 2014, and his new contract gives Vey another year to show that he be a vital part of the team.
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!
One of the ways I express my love for the Vancouver Canucks is by composing songs about the team. It started back in 2010 when I put together my first Canucks Christmas Carol and over the past three years I’ve written 10 songs that have combined for over 92,000 hits on YouTube.
For 2013, I put together 4 songs:
Season of Cup (Our Team, Our Way) – January; 9,300 views on YouTube
Under John Tortorella – June; 46,500 views on YouTube
Against All Odds (Luongo’s Lament) – October; 4,500 views on YouTube
Last Christmas – December; 3,600 views on YouTube
A few quick facts:
-the four videos total 64,000 views on YouTube
-they’ve been featured on CTV, Global TV, the Huffington Post, Beat 94.5, Team 1040, Vancity Buzz, Canucks.com, and more
–Marie Hui was gracious enough to appear in all 4 videos, while Arielle Tuliao was in 3 of them. I know where my views are coming from – no one wants to see a middle-aged guy playing the piano.
