The Box are a favourite band from my much younger days. Their songs resonate through me just as they did then, with energy, addictive melodies, positive messages and great stories. I got to catch them live at The Ex this past summer. It was amazing to hear the old favourites played so faithfully and with great passion by the band.

And singer Jean-Marc Pisapia told us something that I didn't know - that he was part of Men Without Hats. They then played us that band's biggest hit, "The Safety Dance".

Give their tunes a listen. I've arranged my favourites as they appeared in their setlist.

"Carry On"

"Temptation"

"Crying Out Loud for Love"

"Ordinary People"

"L'Affaire Dumoutier (Say To Me)"

Men Without Hats' "The Safety Dance"

"Closer Together"
