Gonna lean into a really heavy Canadian playlist this week. Perhaps inspired by the snow that has finally made an appearance in Toronto or the typically Canuck phenomenon of carrying out a 10 minute discussion about snowboots this week while having a business meeting.
In any case, this is it. Some old friends, some new ones.

Stranger Than Earth ... Purity Ring *
Lamplight The Way ... CATL *

Dear Liza ... Running Red Lights *
Looking At You ... The Damned
Dear Confessor ... Immaculate machine *
It Falls Apart ... Odds *
You're Mine ... Joel Plaskett Emergency *
Just follow the bouncing track ;)

See you next week
Din of the band "The Soles" is in the house with yours truly tonight and will be picking the tunes for the most part. I love doing shows like this once in a while because it brings a fresh voice and perspective to Ruby Slippers.
But never fear, I will be posting the full playlist after the fact, in case you are looking for a particular tune.
Here's the video from Who You Really Are:

Into the second month of the new year...so far so good in the Tdot.
Almost afraid to turn on the weather channel in case it jinxes the moderate run we have had so far.
Anyhow, I digress.
So this week includes loads of new stuff including a cover of the EODM from the Play It Forward Campaign by none other than London Ontario's Buffalo Brothers. All sale proceeds from this collection go to the victims and their families affected by the attack on Paris.
Next week is a salute to V Day. Requests? (send them to me at email@example.com)
I Love You All The Time ... Buffalo Brothers * (Play It Forward Campaign) (new cover)
Give Life Back To Music ... Daft Punk (my theme song)
Turn Me Up ... Eh440 *
Ka-Ching ... Die Mannequin *
Gatsby ... Olivia and the Creepy Crawlies *
I Don't Wanna Take It Out On You ... 1977 *
Song To The Siren ... Lights That Change (new)
Winter Tale ... Ummagma (new) *
I.P.S. (I Forgot The Words) ... Vernier * (new)
Winter To Summer ... Rend *
He's Planning His Funeral ... James Collins *
Spread the Love ... Spectre Hearts *
Wailing Wall ... Young Galaxy *
Hero and Heroine ... Strawbs (just because)
Govinda ... Stella Diana (new)
And there's loads more where that came from. Guess we will just have to wait.
Thanks for listening.
