Canada’s Best Music – 5 Songs At A Time – Part 4
Welcome back to the list of Canada’s best music. This entry includes some current stars, a classic rocker and a pair of icons, one of whom you may not have realized was Canadian based on music history and cultural impact. Let’s start with the video.
1. Sam Roberts
This is the first entry in the list for Sam Roberts. The band is a current favourite and has an extensive following.
“Running Back to Saskatoon”
Another Canadian icon makes its first entry to the series. This song has always been one of my favourites for several non-musical reasons. First I am originally from Winnipeg, where they hail from, and second Saskatoon is my second home, lived there for 15 years.
3. David Wilcox
David Wilcox, love this guy. The prototypical live guitar player. Writes some very interesting lyrics and simply loves to play live. We saw him play at Olympic Plaza in downtown Calgary on Canada Day and it was just nuts. Lots of fun when this guy cuts loose.
4. Neil Young
“This Note’s for You”
Bet you didn’t know Neil Young was a Canuck did ya. The first time on the list, this tune rocks.
A second entry in the first twenty songs posted.
