Corey Hart — remember him? — plays for fans in Boston Corey Hart is sometimes dismissed as a one-hit wonder, but that's really unfair. The Canadian singer was a two-hit wonder. Hart's best known, of course, for “Sunglasses at Night,” the 1984 song with the cheesy synth riff that MTV helped catapult to the [...]
"Sunglasses at Night" is a song recorded by Canadian singer Corey Hart. It was the first single to be released off his debut album, 1983's First Offense, and became a hit single in the United States, rising to #7 on the Billboard Hot 100 in August 1984. The song is a staple of 1980s pop rock and new wave music, combining an unflagging synthesizer hook, characteristic arpeggio, rock guitar and obscure lyrics. AllMusic described it as "an instant classic with its distinctive melody and catchy chorus."
The song is included in numerous hits collections of the period, especially in the U.S., but it was not as popular throughout the rest of the world at the time. Peaking at #24 in Hart's native Canada, it was not a hit in Europe and failed to chart at all in the UK.

There was no big announcement for this show – at least not one that I saw. Instead, I heard about it on Twitter – really, just offhandedly retweeted – a unique one-off concert with a favourite singer joining forces with the Art of Time Ensemble to perform an evening of covers of one of their biggest inspirations. I didn’t seriously think I could go – I mean, I’d have to hop on a plane for it – but I checked the ticket availability just to satisfy my own curiosity and dang if there wasn’t one seat still available in the very front row. I look forward to copying and pasting that paragraph in a few months’ time when I have to write about Hawksley Workman and the Art of Time playing Bruce Cockburn songs in Toronto. This is not as much of a one-off as the Hawksley show (which.

For the third year in a row, Devin Tait & The Traitors woke up extra early to perform for the runners in the Los Angeles Marathon. To be honest, I didn't have all that much enthusiasm in the beginning and almost didn't even apply for it. We are down one member since Brandon has departed, and also the marathon is just a lot of work. Also, we were roughly nearer to mile 11 than mile 5 so it was a slightly later start time. So I tried to use mainly the songs he had already performed with us, and only added in a few that he hadn't already done with us. The only truly new.
