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.

Clay’s Canucks Compositions: The Music of the 2011-2012 Season

As Boston’s elimination from the Stanley Cup Playoffs brought sweet music (and small consolation) to the ears of Vancouver Canucks fans, I reflected back to my music-related Clay’s Canucks Commentaries for the season.  There were four in total and included many of my friends and family members…all more talented than I am (there’s a reason why I only play the piano and don’t sing).  A few quick facts:

-the four videos total over 19,000 hits on YouTube
-they’ve been featured on Puck Daddy, Global TV and Canucks.com
-my guests include an anthem singer, an actress, viral video stars, my sons, my church buddies, and a foreign exchange student
-we cover Michael Jackson, Katy Perry, Adele, Justin Bieber, Journey, and the incomparable Bruce Hornsby and the Range

CCC – Clay’s Canucks Commentary for April 3, 2012: Clay’s Anthem Analysis

 

I’m always fascinated by the national anthems at sporting events. A good anthem can get the crowd engaged and excited even before the opening face-off, kick-off, or tip-off. Conversely, a poor rendition can leave both players and fans distracted and confused.

Starting tonight, for Canucks games that I’m at, I will be scoring the national anthems in 5 key categories:

1. Tone/Pitch
2. Pace
3. Ending
4. Appearance
5. Crowd Involvement

I’m looking forward to having some fun with this. Follow me @canuckclay and look for #clayanthemanalysis

This CCC also includes bonus footage of my sons Sean and Jake singing O Canada back in 2006.
