Canada’s Best Music – 5 Songs At A Time – Part 22

This week’s grouping is heavy on the classic 80’s rock material, but does include some classic Quebec music.

1. Frozen Ghost

“Should I See”

Frōzen Ghōst

Frozen Ghost was formed in the mid 80’s, recording until their break up in 1993.  They had a string of hits in the late 80’s, winning the 1987 Juno award as most promising new group.  Should I See is their first entry on the list.

2. Robert Charlebois


Français : Robert Charlebois au festival de Ca...

Robert Charlebois is a composer, singer, author from Montreal.  He was awarded the Order of Canada in 1999.  This song was originally recorded way back in 1967.


3. Glass Tiger

“My Town”

Air Time: The Best of Glass Tiger

A great classic rock song from Glass Tiger, and their 3rd entry on the list.  This is the version with Rod Stewart singing in parts of the song.

4. Chalk Circle

“This Mourning”

Another 80’s band out of Ontario.  A little harder edge than a lot of their contemporaries, except in this song.  Kind of sound like Simple Minds.

5. Blue Rodeo

“After the Rain”

Blue Rodeo 1

Another entry from one of Canada’s finest bands.  This is an outstanding vocal performance by Jim Cuddy.
