Musical Memory Box: Karlinator Edition

Thursday’s Musical Memory Box solution: Scar Tissue, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Californication, 1998. Props to Denis Gagnon for getting the bonus points! Here is PM’s guest-hosting of MMB: Scar tissue. Really odd name for a really good song. For me, this song is all about my last year of high school. The girls, the partys, […]

Musical Memory Box: Still Alive Edition

(Last) Thursday’s Musical Memory Box solution: Here I go Again, Whitesnake, Saints And Sinners, 1982. Yes, it was originally released in 1982. I call this Pierre-Marc Perreault’s Revenge! Why do I call it that? Poor Pierre-Marc felt victimized when I ruled that “Tears In Heaven” qualified under Clapton’s “Unplugged”, and not the studio version on the […]

Tuesday’s Musical Memory Box solution: Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go, Wham!, Make It Big!, 1984. Stephane Dubord showed no shame in collecting the bonus points. Alright, so I’ve made no secret of my love for George Michael in past MMB’s. Here it is, the source of it all. I was eight, and Wham! were […]

Monday’s Musical Memory Box solution: Just Like Heaven, The Cure, Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me, 1987. Jolene Piche, on her birthday, gets the bonus points! Robert Smith was/is a weird dude. He was Billy Corgan before Billy Corgan. He was emo before emo was created by a record company executive. Not only that, but […]

Sunday’s Musical Memory Box solution: Cryin’, Aerosmith, Get A Grip, 1993. I wasn’t going to get this one by Karl Bélanger, that’s for damn sure. “Cryin’” is a song that began a trilogy of ballads released off of Get A Grip that pretty much proclaimed that the band was no longer able to write up-tempo […]

Saturday’s Musical Memory Box solution: Jeremy, Pearl Jam, Ten, 1991. Serge Leclerc beats the field by mere seconds in collecting the bonus points. For most, “Jeremy” was the song that directed their attention to Pearl Jam. A dark subject, surely, but the passion in Vedder’s voice is so guttural, that you cannot turn away. Wow, […]

Friday’s Musical Memory Box solution: What’s Going On, Marvin Gaye, What’s Going On, 1971. Marc Dubé continues his strong April. This song was placed very high in Rolling Stone’s Top 500 songs of all-time. A very strong anti-Viet Nam statement, also sung by Cuba Gooding Jr. in Jerry McGuire. Here are your lyrics for today: […]

Musical Memory Box: Thirsty Toad Edition

Thursday’s Musical Memory Box solution: Ordinary People, The Box, Closer Together, 1987. Karl Bélanger defies the bounds of human capacity by scoring the bonus points. Here’s a band we have forgotten about that absolutely deserved better. How is it that we remember The Northern Pikes, Honeymoon Suite and Loverboy, but never mention The Box? Their […]

Wednesday’s Musical Memory Box solution: Clocks, Coldplay, A Rush Of Blood To The Head, 2002. Pierre-Marc Perreault gets Rémi Savard’s hate directed toward him, but thankfully his Kevlar Vest of Hate Protection +1 deflected most of it. I gotta get me one of those. Coldplay, huge band, never “got” it, huge songs, nice to hum […]

Musical Memory Box: Frankly, My Dear…Edition

Tuesday’s Musical Memory Box solution: Know Your Enemy, Green Day, 21st Century Breakdown, 2009. Stephane Dubord, fresh off his attendance of “American Idiot” on Broadway, demolishes his competition by ascending into the sky and deploying his laser rocket vision and winning the bonus points. Know your enemy. Who is this enemy that Billie Joe speaks […]
