This week's number 1 is by Eva Under Fire, who have had 13 charted hits on Rock Rips, and now 8 #1s. This song is significant because it's from a movie - we haven't had alot of sountrack hits in recent years - but more because of the movie it's from, Sno Babies. This movie explores the little-spoken of opiate crisis - an ongoing crisis that has taken the lives of thousands in Canada and the US alone. According to the CDC, 128 people die every day in the US from opiod overdoses - both illegal and prescription forms. Stream the video on Youtube and help the cause!
We welcome Illumishade back to Rock Rips with a new song, and another band we've not heard from in awhile - Kingfisher Sky is back with a cover of an Alanis Morrisette song.
The corona virus has enveloped the world and we are certainly in a very different time - of pandemic, social distancing, racial inequity, and job loss. That's why we keep adding to our Pandemic Playlist, with many entries from the Holderness Family to keep us laughing: Pandemic Playlist."
