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!

Clay’s Canucks Composition: Season of Cup (Our Team, Our Way)

For my first Clay’s Canucks Composition of 2013, I assembled four of the most talented Canucks fans around to put together a song to mark the start of the shortened 2013 season. Thus, I’m thrilled to present to you Season of Cup (based on Seasons of Love from RENT).

You’ll likely recognize most of the singers in this fun video.  Marie Hui helped me with my Canucks Medley in November 2011 while Arielle Tuliao and I got together for Don’t Stop Believing back in April for the Canucks’ playoff run.  I’ve been wanting to get these two amazing ladies together for a collaboration and I’m thrilled we made it happen!

The guys aren’t too shabby either.  Joseph San Jose is the star of all of my Canucks Christmas carols, and my good friend Gary de Guzman has one of the most pure voices around.

Put the four of them together (with me pounding on the piano) and you get a powerful anthem for the Vancouver Canucks as they look to get back to the Stanley Cup.

This is Our Team, Our Way…and Our Time.

Looking at the Bright Side: 5 Good Things about the Canucks’ Elimination

It’s been just over 24 hours since the Vancouver Canucks were unceremoniously eliminated from the Stanley Cup Playoffs by the Los Angeles Kings in just five games. As I outlined in my season-ending Clay’s Canucks Commentary, I was quite saddened and disappointed immediately after the game especially given the high hopes for the Canucks in the post-season.

After drowning our sorrows in some beef sashimi and salmon cones, my son Sean and I made it home just after 10pm. There, I was met by my lovely wife Gail.

“I’m so sad, disappointed and frustrated,” I lamented, “and I’m not even on the team!”

To which Gail replied “Well, you think you are!”

CCC – Clay’s Canucks Commentary for April 22, 2012: A Season Ends Much Too Soon

In my final regularly-scheduled CCC for the 2011-2012 season, I take a quick look at the disappointing end to the Vancouver Canucks season; a season that ended with 2 – 1 overtime loss to the Los Angeles Kings. The Kings handily won the series 4 games to 1.

I share some quick thoughts on what issues the Canucks will have to tackle in the off-season and I also draw comparisons to the ending of this year’s playoff run to last year’s ending.

Thank you to all of you, the faithful viewers of these video blogs. I appreciate all of the comments, feedback, suggestions, and encouragement. See you next season and Go Canucks Go!
