Did you know the band that wrote the famous “Working for the Weekend” song is Canadian? Loverboy, the 80s pop rock band, hail from Calgary and are currently making music out of Vancouver!

You can’t get more Canadian than that.

Why all this Loverboy talk? Well we’re thinking that our weekend development events listing needs a soundtrack — theme music, if you will — and we’re currently going through weekend-themed tunes trying to pick the best one. It’s gotta be Canadian, it’s gotta be all about the weekend, and it’s gotta be awesome. Real estate references in the lyrics are a plus, but not a requirement.

So this week, we’re trying out Loverboy’s Working for the Weekend. All you prospective home buyers out there should have a listen while you read over our uber-comprehensive list of development industry events and let us know what you think. Enjoy!
