Music Monday: Songs you might want to hear – You’re late. Whaahappen?


There is a radio show on CBC here in Canada that occasionally does a feature called SYNTH: Songs You Need To Hear.

Now, I can’t say to someone, “You’ll like this song” (or book for that matter) because I can’t presume that others will share my taste in music (or books), so it is safer to say, “You might like this” and if they don’t like it, so be it.

Maybe you will find a new favorite.


I’ve been away from my home base for a few days, so my routine has been thrown out of whack. You don’t realize how much you rely on familiarity until you are thrust into different territory.

Every time I think of an artist to feature, I scrawl it on a piece of paper on the upper right corner of my desk. From where I am, it’s not there. So here is one off the top of my head.

Metric is a rock band from Toronto.

For the American readers/listeners, Toronto isn’t the capital of Canada (although many Torontonians will argue otherwise), and no, you do not have to convert to your Imperial system to understand it*.

Warning: The video is a tad strobey at the beginning if you are sensitive to flashing lights.


*But you should really consider joining the rest of the world in the metric system. There is no need for 2 full sets of wrenches.


I hope you enjoyed my selection today.
