A Winnipeger is allowed to speak of Winnipeg in whatever way one wants to.  This song, “One Great City”, by Winnipeg band The Weakerthans, is literally a love/hate song of our mutual home town.  The band formed in 1997.  They are an Alt band with some punk roots.  This song is both melodic and ironic.  It was on their 2003 album “Reconstruction”.  A bit different that what I have featured lately, but, heard it on the drive today and had to post it.
