It’s a little bit late in the day, but that’s only because we’re running on Canadian time. Our 24th weekly playlist is Canadian Country 2.0! This one was chosen by Becky Lawrence, partly because we had a tie in our poll here and in the tiebreaker on Twitter, but also to celebrate our recent announcement that Becky has become the newest member of the 3C family!
So, without further ado, we have some highlights to talk about. First of all, let’s talk about Can I Have This Dance? – I wept like a baby the first time I listened to this song. I’m not afraid to tell you it still makes me tear up. I love the journey in Joey’s voice as the recalls stories from her childhood. Check out our review for more of the backstory behind this song, and then try not to cry when you listen.
My second highlight is Used, and boy, this one hits me like a ton of bricks every time. Were going from one extreme to another here today, folks. You all know I’m absolutely wild about everything Jess Moskaluke breathes on, and this song is an absolute masterpiece. It was a challenge to choose just one to include in this playlist! The depth of emotion in Moskaluke’s voice is mind-blowing, and the power is absolutely stunning.
Finally – and one that doesn’t make me cry! – These Days is my third highlight. I just adore the vibe of this song. It’s fun, it’s liberating, it’s airy but bold and it sounds like an absolutely perfect drive along the coast on a summer’s day. It’s one I can’t get enough of, even as summer comes to a close.
