Well, we’re off to B.C. in the morning so I thought a bit of Canadian music might be in order… and then it hit me just how little I know about Canadian bands. This selection then will be a little thin.
First up is a bit of Crash Test Dummies from back in 1993.
Next come those brilliant Canadian rockers Rush… the band that first brought me to Leicester way back in the early 80s to see them at the DeMontfort Hall.
For fans of Smashie and Nicey there’s always Bachmann Turner Overdrive. Name another song without googling it!
If you’re feeling suicidal the a bit of Leonard Cohen might not be for you…
I know The Band weren’t Canadian but you’ve got to take what you can and Robbie Robertson certainly was.
Finally and I reckon I saved the best to last… not too hard really but for me the best thing to come out of Canada is God, or Neil Young as he goes by here on Earth.
