Aged cheese - direct from Canada

28

February

I guess in Canada, "Honeymoon Suite" is the favorite brand of cheese ... at least during our favorite decade.

This video -- for their hit "New Girl Now" -- is possibly filled with more '80s cliches than anything I've seen before. (Yes, the fake video for "Pop Goes My Heart" from the movie "Music & Lyrics" has been dethroned.) Fantastic song though.

The band was formed in 1982 in Niagara Falls, Ontario, and hit pay-dirt in 1984  with their self-titled debut album. Four singles (New Girl Now, Burning In Love, Wave Babies and Stay In the Light) were hits in Canada while "New Girl Now" charted in the United States.

Honeymoon Suite is still alive and kicking -- they've got a nice official website and everything. And they're still playing gigs up north. If this video turned you on to their music, check out their 2006 two-disc set -- "Feel It Again: An Anthology."
