Just to prove that Headbangers know about music other than Metal, i drag forth from the 80's Corey Hart.
Btw intrepid i have albums by Triumph and April Wine on vinyl, though i didnt realise April Wine were Canadian. Great stuff.

Corey Hart - Sunglasses At Night

Rush - The Trees

There is trouble in the forest,
And the creatures all have fled,
As the maples scream "Oppression!"
And the oaks just shake their heads

This thread needs more celtic influence.

The first one is from the opening act for the first concert I ever went to.

Spirit of The West - Home for a Rest

Great Big Sea - Mary Mac

Canada's bad boy of fiddlin' - Ashley MacIsaac

Sleepy Maggie (lyrics in Gaelic)

A live clip of Ashley playing

The Tea Party- Psychcopomp(pretty mellow version)

Crank it for this band. Their 90's but sound 70's.

Walking Wounded:

That one was mellow by their standards too.

Tea Party kicking it-Temptation:

The Godfather of Canadian music, Gordon Lightfoot:

I'm a metal head but I LOVE this song- If you could Read My Mind:

His biggest hit- The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald:

This Canada's Cash, Jennings or Nelson. How about one more:

Here's a couple from Bif Naked. She's super-talented with an amazing voice, funny, kind, sweet and gorgeous. I have such a girl crush on her.

Moment of Weakness

Fixed video that didn't work

Bif's cool. I was looking for some Valdy, nothing on the Net, here's a remake of his tune Rock and Roll Song:

Google Video Link

Man, his Canadiana is amazing. Streets of Whitehorse. Peter and Lou. I don't know why he isn't on the Net. If someone can find some Valdy, please post it.

I like Valdy too. This site has some samples of his music:

How about this little bit of Canadian musical history?

Irish Rovers - Unicorn Song

I love this song.

Yeah so they didn't write it, but they made it famous.

Gosh, there are so many acts from Canada that I like, I can't even decide which to post. I like pretty much any kind of music, so here is a bit of a mix.

The Band - The Weight

Paul Anka - Put Your Head On My Shoulder

Leonard Cohen - Everybody Knows

Finger Eleven - Good Times

Here's another mixed bag of Canadian music.

Trooper - Boys in the Bright White Sports Car

Diana Krall - Charmed Life

Grapes of Wrath - All The Things I Wasn't

Burton Cummings - Stand Tall

Loverboy - Turn Me Loose

posted on Jul, 19 2007 @ 04:48 AM
Here's more Loverboy because I had forgotten how much I liked them.

The Kid is Hot Tonight - I couldn't find the original, but this is funny.

Working for the Weekend - Again not the original, but funny. What is it that inspires Loverboy fans?

Lovin' Every Minute Of It
