It is Sunday and time for the next 5 in my list of Canada’s best music. In this edition, 2 by a current Canadian favourite, a classic rock song, a second entry by the great Joni Mitchell and some garage rock by Ugly Duckling.
1. Blue Rodeo
Blue Rodeo are Canada’s number one alt-country, rock band. They have been churning out the hits for many years and are still at the top of Canada’s popular music game. This song was released in 1989.
Waaaay back in the 60’s, The Ugly Ducklings were the best there was on the Toronto music scene. Garage rockers extraordinaire. The version here is from a 2000 concert. Love it live.
3. Blue Rodeo
“Hasn’t Hit Me Yet”
A second song by Blue Rodeo in this set. This is from 1993.
4. Joni Mitchell
A second tune on the list by the incomparable Joni Mitchell. Easily one of the greatest ever. This video features a live version and features an incredible band. Really, really good!!
“My Girl (Gone Gone Gone)”
Chilliwack is one of those bands that really should have made it big worldwide. Very talented with strong songs.
