Default 2 Artists I Didn't Know Were Canadian

I've known for years Gordon is but it's only been in that last several years or so I learned the following 70's artists were.

Gino Vanelli and Dan Hill.


Speaking of Dan I came across this updated version of his song.



Nothing beats the original but this version ain't too bad.

My guess is, because the artist has the same name and also,
even 'I' the ultimate fan of '70s music, finds this song a bit nauseating.

I liked it when I was first in love and all but now it's
like that valley girl saying "Like, gag me with a spoon'.

Dan's 'other' hit , 1987's, "Can't We Try?" (with Vonda Shepard,
isn;t much better, in fact, it's a downright boring beyond belief song.

I knew Dan was Canadian but not Gino Vanelli. I had him pegged as a New Yorker.

Looks like his stuff made the R&B charts in the US because he appeared on Soul Train.





Hears another.
