Friday’s Musical Memory Box solution: Break On Through (To The Other Side), The Doors, The Doors, 1967. Pierre-Marc Perreault takes the cake. Here are your lyrics for today: “And that’s when the hornet stung me And I had me a serious dream With revenge and doubt Tonight, we smoked them out”

  Thursday’s Musical Memory Box solution: L’homme 7-Up, Les Respectables, $ = Bonheur, 1999. Rémi Savard the only one to get points! Every once in a blue moon, I choose a francophone song to cater to the 18 or so members of MMB who speak French and know some French music. Unfortunately, yesterday’s selection did […]

Wednesday’s Musical Memory Box solution: One, Metallica, …And Justice For All, 1988. Pierre-Marc Perreault gets a bonus streak going. Can he make it three? Metallica’s “One” is the only song by the band that I paid any attention to before the black album. I know that will box me into a certain category of distasteful […]

Tuesday’s Musical Memory Box solution: Feel Good Inc., Gorillaz, Demon Days, 2005. Pierre-Marc Perreault with some bonus points for his growing stash. We all know what a concept album is, but a concept band? That’s just crazy talk! However, that’s what Blur lead singer Damon Albarn decided to create with his comic-book artist buddy Jamie […]

Musical Memory Box: River Cats Edition

Monday’s Musical Memory Box solution: That Song, Big Wreck, In Loving Memory Of…, 1997. Predictably, Big Wreck fanatic Rémi Savard was the first to guess all elements correctly. I have no emotional attachment to Big Wreck. They came to prominence amongst a wave of CanCon that I didn’t pay much attention to, like Matthew Good […]

Sunday’s Musical Memory Box solution: Thunderstruck, AC/DC, The Razor’s Edge, 1990. No one  was going to take away the bonus points from Jérôme Gédéon! This is the AC/DC song that was of “my” generation. “You Shook Me All Night Long”, “Hell’s Bells” and “Back In Black” were already classics by the time I got into […]

Musical Memory Box: New Breakfast Edition

Saturday’s Musical Memory Box solution: Short Skirt/Long Jacket, Cake, Comfort Eagle, 2001. Speaking of rising action, here comes Stephane Dubord. You’ve all been warned. Good (late) afternoon friends. My memory of Cake is that I’ve always liked them, but never enough to get an album. Having said that, I LOVE this song. It’s funky, quirky, […]

Friday’s Musical Memory Box solution:  I Wanna Be Sedated, The Ramones, Road To Ruin, 1978. Laurie Kempton correctly guesses all elements to claim the prize! I don’t think this was the first Ramones song I ever knew. No, I think that honour goes to “Pet Sematary”, from the soundtrack of the 1989 Stephen King film […]

Musical Memory Box: Like New

Thursday’s Musical Memory Box solution: Spiderwebs, No Doubt, Tragic Kingdom, 1995. Serge Leclerc declares his intent to dominate March with a perfect answer. It’s official, the musical warlock is a rising star. Seven points in the matter of a few days is impressive for a beginner. Will the leaders be looking over their shoulders, or […]

Musical Memory Box: Victims and Heroes Edition

Wednesday’s Musical Memory Box solution: Money, Pink Floyd, Dark Side of the Moon, 1973. Karl Bélanger barely beat out Pink Floyd expert Pierre-Marc Perreault for the bonus points. Like Rush, I’ve only recently gotten into Pink Floyd. I spent most of my life dismissing Pink Floyd as music for stoners. I am always saddened when […]
