Canada’s Best Music – 5 Songs At A Time – Part 3
This time out we have a bit more country/bluegrass, my first entry from a Canadian icon, some classic rock and a Christmas collaboration used for a fundraiser.
” NDN Cars”
A North American native anthem, the only version I can find on YouTube that wasn’t crap was the attached by Keith Secola. Although not a Canadian, I will allow this as a pseudo-Canadian version. My post, my call.
A Canadian classic, this is also a first entry, there will be more by this band. One of our best bands, they never got the recognition they deserved.
“Tears Are Not Enough”
Part of the “We Are The World” famine relief efforts in the 1980’s, this song was Canada’s contribution. The song, written by Bryan Adams, and features such artists as Neil Young, Geddy Lee, Burton Cummings and Anne Murray, a who’s who of Canadian artists at that time.

“It’s Only Love”
The first entry by a Canadian icon, this song was a major hit with Tina Turner. The version I have inserted is a live one, recorded in Lisbon, Portugal and highlights the energy he can create on stage. Oh, and Keith Scott is great on guitar.
A 90’s band, they settle nicely into the classic rock genre. A very successful group in their time.
