Canucks Christmas Carols (2010 to now)

Every year for Christmas, I like to combine my love for the Canucks and my love for music.  The result: Canucks Christmas Carols!

Here’s a look at the Canucks Christmas videos we’ve done over the years.  They have a combined 70,000 views between them.

2017:  Canucks Christmas Carols Volume 2

Three years after our original Canucks Christmas Carols video, Marie and I are back with more Canucks-themed Christmas songs.

We enlist the help of broadcaster Joey Kenward and we went with an 80s theme.

Music to Roberto Luongo’s Ears

I took Luongo to Rome with me in 2013.

As Roberto Luongo makes his much-anticipated return to Rogers Arena to face off against his former team, I want to share 3 songs that we’ve done in the last past couple of years for the likable goaltender.

1.  End of the Road (We Thank You, Lu)

 Marie Hui‘s emotional performance (moreso than my goofy spoken part in the middle) earned us a greeting from Luongo himself!

When Musical Bloggers Unite: Someone Like Lu

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.

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.
