Although the Vancouver Canucks slipped to fifth in last Saturday’s lottery for the 2016 NHL Entry Draft, they are still confident that they will pick a “foundational player”.
In our new parody song, we look ahead to next month’s draft and at some of the players the Canucks will likely considering picking. As well, we pay tribute to the legendary Prince – who passed away on April 21, 2016.
I’m joined by regular collaborators – the lovely and talented Marie Hui and Arielle Tuliao for our version of “When Doves Cry”.
We made songs for new Canucks’ President Trevor Linden and new Canucks’ GM Jim Benning…so rightfully new Canucks’ head coach Willie Desjardins deserved a song as well.
Thus, we proudly present to you a quick mash-up of two Michael Jackson songs: “Will You Be There” and “Billie Jean”. Our versions are “Willie is Here” and “Willie D”.
I’m joined once again by my good friend Joseph San Jose and our MJ look-alike is Charly Pimentel making his CCC debut.
Last week, Canucks’ President Trevor Linden named Jim Benning (affectionately referred to as “Jimmy B” for the purposes of our video) as the 11th General Manager in franchise history.
As soon as the hire was officially announced, a few of my Twitter friends had song suggestions for me. But Steve May went one step further: he wrote an entire song and sent the lyrics to me.
Thus, I proudly present to you my latest Clay’s Canucks Composition: “Jimmy B” an ode to new General Manager Jim Benning to the tune of The Beatles’ classic “Let it Be”.
As always, I’m joined by the amazing Marie Hui; there is absolutely nothing that this girl can’t sing!
