It's Tuesday, and time for another look at what YouTube has to offer.
This week's YouTubesday is inspired by my travels to Canada, specifically Montreal. I arrived to Montreal Saturday and have been eating mounds of poutine, enjoying pints of Boréale beer, and wishing I knew some French so I could flirt better with the Québécoise. So, in keeping with my current location, I decided to post a clip from some home-grown talent.
Arcade Fire? Too obvious. The Dears? I'm pretty sure I don't like them. Men Without Hats? Tempting... but instead, you are reminded that Montreal's own Corey Hart was once a Tiger Beat heart throb (and possibly light sensitive).
- at 13, he sang for Tom Jones and recorded with Paul Anka in Las Vegas and, at 19, recorded demos with Billy Joel and Eric Clapton before signing to a major label at the age of 20.
- he was offered the role of Marty McFly in the film Back to the Future, which he turned down.
- he has four children with kooky names: daughters India, Dante & River and son Rain.
