We’ve been known to sing our emotions here at Pass it to Bulis. Between “Lockout Man“, “I Want a Girl Like Trevor Linden“, “Song For Nelson Ong“, and “Call the Union“, I think you could argue that we’re one of the most musical hockey blogs around.
But we’re not the only Canuck fans known to occasionally drop a single. Clay Imoo, a member of the cast of superfriends over at Canucks Hockey Blog, is undoubtedly the Smylosphere’s reigning king of pop. In his series, “Clay’s Canucks Commentary”, The man takes to his Yamaha, assembles a roster of guest vocalists fit for a hip hop album, and delivers musical triumphs with stunning regularity.
On Monday, Imoo dropped his first new Canucks fan jam of 2013. “Season of Cup” is a take on “Seasons of Love” from Rent, and if we thought we could carry a tune here at PITB, well, compared to the vocal quartet Imoo’s assembled for this one, we may as well be Wesley Willis. This is some insane singing.
Holy cow. HOLY COW. These guys make us sound like Russell Crowe.
Here’s Imoo on the voices that makes up Clay’s Canucks Cortet:
You’ll likely recognize most of the singers in this fun video. Marie Hui helped me with my Canucks Medley in November 2011 while Arielle Tuliao and I got together for Don’t Stop Believing back in April for the Canucks’ playoff run. I’ve been wanting to get these two amazing ladies together for a collaboration and I’m thrilled we made it happen!
The guys aren’t too shabby either. Joseph San Jose is the star of all of my Canucks Christmas carols, and my good friend Gary de Guzman has one of the most pure voices around.
I’m so jealous of the crazy vocal talent these four possess. In my heart, I’m hoping that, at the very least, they sound ridiculous when they talk, like Adele.
If you’re wondering, the 172,800 seconds refers to the amount of time in the 48-game season. 60 minutes is 3600 seconds. And 60 minutes 48 times is 172,800 seconds.
BUT WHAT ABOUT OVERTIME, CLAY? Yeah. Didn’t think about that, did you?
Anyway. I think “Something was missing” should have featured this song instead of that weird spoken-word poem.Tags: Clay Imoo, The YouTubes
