Canada’s Best Music – 5 Songs At A Time – Part 2
Today brings 5 more Canadian songs that I would like to share. The mix this time out includes some bluegrass/country with the Good Brothers, some modern pop with Justin Bieber (sorry, but he is Canadian), some classic rock with the Ian Thomas Band (Dave Thomas of Strange Brew‘s brother), some hip hop/dance with Kreesha Turner and some out and out rock and roll with Billy Talent. As always, please follow-up on these people using the links, and on YouTube.
“Fox on the Run”
Some mighty fine picking on this live version of the song. These guys have been around a LOOOONNG time, their first album was out in 1967 and they are still recording and touring.
2. Billy Talent
Another hard-working band that made it big world-wide, Billy Talent has recorded since 1999 and together in one form or the other since 1987. Great song.
3. Ian Thomas Band
A couple of things on Ian Thomas. First, he is the brother of Dave Thomas of SCTV fame, and Mackenzie brother fame, the hoser. Second, you may recognize the song as a Manfred Mann song. Not so, Manfred Mann’s version was a cover of the 1980 original.
4. Justin Bieber
Catchy, other than that – No comment.
5. Kreesha Turner
“Don’t Call Me Baby”
As if in response to Justin.
