The “L” Word is a series of posts where we feature songs and videos with the word “LOVE” in the title. For most of us, music plays a major role in our lives, especially when it comes to the topic of LOVE. From break-ups to make-ups and everything in between… music has been there along the way. We hope that you’ll be able to relate to some, if not all, of the songs we post.
In this edition of The “L” Word, we’ve selected “Can’t Say Love” by Toronto’s very own Glenn Lewis. Glenn Lewis first got the world’s attention with the breakout single “Don’t You Forget It” from his 2002 debut LP “World Outside My Window”. His new album “Moment Of Truth” is due out August 20, 2013. Enjoy!

Free food and drinks, and a Yukon Blonde show all in one place. Is there anything better than that? I don’t think so.
Last night, the good people at Harry Rosen threw a little party soundtracked by Kelowna’s greatest rock ‘n’ roll export, Yukon Blonde. Yes, a high-end clothing store and a grungy, indie rock band is a strange combo but Harry Rosen dubbed it as “Blurr[ing] the lines between music and fashion” and blurring the lines they did. After all, music and fashion have always gone hand in hand.
Fresh off of their West coast Canadian tour with Zeus and GROUNDERS and a pit stop at the JUNOs, Jeff, Brandon, Graham, and Jason took to the stage donning some crisp Harry Rosen suits. They ripped through a bunch of their tracks off their latest album, Tiger Talk and snuck a few oldies in the set too. Half of the audience were getting their schmooze on but once they played their single “Stairway” they definitely caught everyone’s attention.
Maybe it was the sweet smell of sliders or being surrounded by freshly ironed shirts but Yukon Blonde sounded incredible and put on an awesome, energetic show. Whether they’re performing at a seedy bar or a swanky men’s clothing store, Yukon Blonde always prove to be one of Canada’s best live acts. Check out their video for “Stairway”.
Yukon Blonde’s “Tiger Talk” is available HERE

Last year, as Amex Ambassadors we traveled to Madrid, Spain for an unforgettable experience to see Coldplay: Unstaged. Plus, we attended a private viewing party at Massey Hall for Usher: Unstaged. This year, American Express, in partnership with VEVO and YouTube have selected Vampire Weekend and Emmy nominated actor/director Steve Buscemi to kick-off their popular live stream music series, “American Express Unstaged”. American Express Unstaged highlights Amex’s dedication to service, providing Cardmembers and non-Cardmembers alike with exclusive access to premium entertainment experiences (like Vampire Weekend Unstaged) that you may not otherwise have access to.
Join us in what promises to be another premium experience and watch Vampire Weekend’s exclusive performance online on the last night of the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City at the Roseland Ballroom on Sunday, April 28th at 9pm. All you have to do is tune in live here: amexunstaged.com
The cool thing about #AmexUnstaged is that it blurs the lines between an at-home and in-concert experience. For example, you can ‘choose your cam’, that’s right, YOU can control your camera view by switching between the director’s main stream and alternate artist-themed angles. We’ve included a pre-show video below to get you as excited as we are! Enjoy the show…
