With the arrival of the first long weekend of the summer, I would be remiss if I didn't have my loyal dotcomrades ponder the age old question: what is the quintessential Canadian long weekend soundtrack?
I have the following to submit:
To quote some random kid sitting on my buddy Drummond's dock one warm summer night many years ago: "How about a little Rodeo?"
"Those patio lanterns, they were the stars in the sky..."
The most important musician to ever come out of this great country.
"Blue, blue windows behind the stars
Yellow moon on the rise..."
The things in this world that are more Canadian than The Tragically Hip can be counted on one hand. They include:
1) Beaver Pelts
2) Milk bags
3) John A McDonald (before he played shortstop for the Toronto Blue Jays)
4) Sher-Wood hockey sticks
5) Maple Syrup
"She said you're gonna miss me
Wait and you'll see..."
Happy May Two-Four, eh!
