Whitehorse

As I drove home from work the other night I found myself listening to “I’m On Fire” as covered by a band named Whitehorse on Q. Jim Brown was filling in for Jian Ghomeshi. I have to pause for a second just to say, as a former Calgarian, I miss listening to Jim Brown on a daily, morning basis. It’s a treat when I get to hear him on national programs like Q, or The Current.

But back to the story… I’m in the car listening to “I’m On Fire” and I think to myself, ‘this guitar player is fantastic’. And then Whitehorse finishes playing and Jim Brown calls them over to the desk. “On guitar, Luke Doucet, and on vocals, Melissa McClelland.” Rad.

Their independent work is great on its own. I’m happy to see the couple collaborating now, officially. Take a listen when you get a chance. May I close by saying I owe my love of Luke Doucet to my friend Matt Grier who accidentally left Doucet’s ‘Blood’s Too Rich’ in my car one afternoon. ‘Long Haul Driver’ makes for a fantastic opener on the album.

I’m just a little bit caught in the middle
Life is a maze and love is a riddle
I don’t know where to go, can’t do it alone
I’ve tried and I don’t know why

Slow it down, make it stop or else my heart is going to pop
‘Cause it’s too much, yeah it’s a lot to be something I’m not
I’m a fool out of love ’cause I just can’t get enough

I’m just a little bit caught in the middle
Life is a maze and love is a riddle
I don’t know where to go, can’t do it alone
I’ve tried and I don’t know why

I’m just a little girl lost in the moment
I’m so scared but I don’t show it
I can’t figure it out, it’s bringing me down
I know I’ve got to let it go and just enjoy the show

The sun is hot in the sky just like a giant spotlight
The people follow the signs and synchronize in time
It’s a joke nobody knows, they’ve got a ticket to the show

Yeah, I’m just a little bit caught in the middle
Life is a maze and love is a riddle
I don’t know where to go, can’t do it alone
I’ve tried and I don’t know why

I’m just a little girl lost in the moment
I’m so scared but I don’t show it
I can’t figure it out, it’s bringing me down
I know I’ve got to let it go and just enjoy the show
Just enjoy the show

I’m just a little bit caught in the middle
Life is a maze and love is a riddle
I don’t know where to go, can’t do it alone
I’ve tried and I don’t know why

I’m just a little girl lost in the moment
I’m so scared but I don’t show it
I can’t figure it out, it’s bringing me down
I know I’ve got to let it go and just enjoy the show
Just enjoy the show, just enjoy the show

I want my money back, I want my money back
I want my money back, just enjoy the show
I want my money back, I want my money back
I want my money back, just enjoy the show
