Gordon Lightfoot. This guy IS one of the classics!

"The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" has an eerie connotation about it. I never tire of hearing this one. Great song!



P.S. Thanks Access! Once I get the hang of it...there's no stopping me! hee hee

The Guess Who- NO SUGAR TONIGHT/NEW MOTHER NATURE:

Damn they're looking old.




These Eyes:



And their biggest hit, American Woman:



Interesting story behind this tune. Burton was outside after a break and the band cranked up the tune and he heard it and came back inside and ad lib'd the words to the tune. It was recorded and someone said that they should do this in the studio. That someone was right. It was their biggest hit. This was during Viet Nam btw.

BTO coming up.

I haven't seen Danny in years he recorded a song I and a friend did at his Grant Street Studios in Hamilton in the late 70's, back then Danny was still fairly unknown,( and I still am
) cost us 1900$ to do it. Our claim fame was the song got picked up by CBC for the sound track of a Tee Vee show called live it up.

Here's a selection from the west coast.

The Odds were the house band at a club I used to frequent. I think they only released a couple albums, but I spent many an evening drinking to their music. This video was made with clips from Supernatural and was most likely produced by a teenage girl. I'm disappointed I couldn't find the original; it featured Kids in the Hall in drag.

Heterosexual Man -



Chilliwack - My Girl



Devin Townsend is in lots of different bands/projects. This is considered the 'lighter side of Devin' which is kind of scary.

Devin Townsend Band - Vampira



Doug and the Slugs - Making It Work

I might understand the lack of Guy Lombardo contributions, but where's Mahogany Rush? No love for Frank Merino? A room mate of mine in college had the Child of the Novelty 8-track, which we wore out.



Here's a trivia question for you - who designed and developed the stereo 8 track? >hint< There's an ATS relevance.

A 3 page thread on Canadian music and no Mention of Arcade Fire?!!!

In that case, my Canadian music tip is Arcade Fire. Absolutely sublime, best band in the world right now, even in my 'british guitar music is the best' opinion.

I had to post this again, just to say Yippee! I went to see Chilliwack last night. The park across from my place has music festival almost every weekend during the summer. Chilliwack was the last band to play yesterday and they opened (and closed) with My Girl.

Hey AccessDenied, I like Honeymoon Suite too - classic 80's goodness.

My ultimate Canadian guilty pleasure from the 80's - Platinum Blonde. All these songs are off Standing In The Dark, which has a permanent slot in my CD player.
