Canada’s Best Music – 5 Songs At A Time – Part 20

With this post, we now have covered 100 songs of the list I am working from.  Only 400 more to go.  This particular set is a really good one.  A bit of hip-hop, mixed in with some exceptional classic tunes.

1. Bryan Adams

“Straight From the Heart”

A further entry from one of Canada’s premier singer-songwriters.  The man has the knack for writing the big hits, and this is one of them.  Great video, the man, a guitar and an adoring audience singing every word

2.k-os

” Crabbuckit”

K-os came out with this tune several years ago and it became an instant sing-a-long song that is very hard to get out of your head once you have heard it.

3.Neil Young & Crazy Horse

” Cortez the Killer”

After CSN&Y there was Crazy Horse.  Nothing to say, except enjoy the master and his friends in this live version from 2003.  The man can play that guitar.

4. Joni Mitchell

“Help Me”

Born and raised in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Joni is one of the best anywhere.  This song is on of my favorites in her catalog.

5. Rush

“Fly by Night”

Rush is another world-wide breakout Canadian artist.  Fly By Night was one of the tunes that broke them.

  1. I guess Bryan is one of those guys who does not mind if you talk in between a movie. Good man. The beats of Crabbuckit are pretty catchy; you know it is going to be good as soon as it starts. I’m not much for solo guitar pieces but the way it was used in Cortez was so pleasant and calm. Something always very happy about Joni’s voice. Rush was all new to me.
