Today’s 5 spot includes a classic female singer of the 60′s, another entry from Blue Rodeo some classic rock and folk, and a current superstar.
“Mister Can’t You See”
Buffy Ste. Marie is a native Canadian artist, born in Saskatchewan. Her music is a mix of history and mysticism. She is a true Canadian treasure.
This is one of her anti-war anthems.
2. Blue Rodeo
“Till I am Myself Again”
Love these guys. Another entry from a great band. This song is off Casino, recorded in 1990.
3. Crash Vegas
” It’s Not Funny Anymore”
Crash Vegas was a Canadian folk-rock band from the late 1980′s. It has a connection to Blue Rodeo in that Greg Keelor, the other singer and songwriter for Blue Rodeo was one of the founding members. He left the band before they had recorded anything. This song is from their 1989 record, “Red Earth”. The quality of the clip is lacking and I apologize. Could not find anything better.
“One Day in Your Life”
Another entry from a Canadian classic band.
“I’m Like a Bird”
The first entry on the list by Canadian international superstar, Nelly Furtado. Great song.
