Canada’s Best Music – 5 Songs At A Time – Part 5


Time to bring in the New Year with some more of Canada’s best music.  In this grouping we find 4 classic Canadian acts, including Bryan Adams second entry, a song by a Canadian institution and a newer rock group who have set some low expectations with their name and exceed them.

;Bryan Adams live in the Color Line Arena, Ham...

1.  Bryan Adams

“Heart’s on Fire”

A live version of another Bryan Adams classic. always electric.

2. Burton Cummings

“I’m Scared”

Burton Cummings of The Guess Who

Burton Cummings

The voice of one of the greatest bands ever, the Guess Who, Burton Cummings.  He had a fairly successful solo career after the band broke up.  This is a nice ballad that focuses on his piano work and, of course, the voice.

3. Gino Vannelli

“Wild Horses”

Gino Vannelli

A great singer out of Montreal, he had a terrific run in the 80’s and 90’s with a string of hits.  He still tours and is well worth the price of admission.

4. Lowest of the Low

“The Eternal Fatalist”

Lowest of the Low

Great song, nuff said.

5. Toronto

“Daddy Don’t Know”

Some hard-driving classic rock from my youth.

About John

I enjoy travel, sports, music and anything else that jumps up at me for the moment, which is why I blog. There will be lots of music and travel posts and a smattering of sports and humour. I enjoy promoting Canada and am unabashedly a proud Canuck.

  1. Another great set, Personally liked Toronto the best..
    Number 2 was a little too ’70s for me. And Gino Vannelli looks just like the bad guy from Road House. The band members changing is hilarious. But a fun song. I’ll check out his stuff…

  2. Hi,
    A great selection, I really enjoyed listening to them.
    I just got home, got a nice cold coke out of the fridge (Summer here) and sat down to go through some blogs, so it was good timing on my part. 🙂
    I would have to say I really like Bryan Adams and Burton Cummings, very nice.
    Thank You for visiting my blog and also for following.

    • Thanks for the follow, and for stopping by. Looks like you’re in Australia. Have some friends and relatives scattered around there, Port Hedland, Adelaide, Sydney, Perth, Wollongong and Melbourne. I was just doing the same thing, following up on a bunch of posts. Have a gooder.

  3. See, Adams’ ‘Into The Fire’ is still our favourite album of his.

    Reckless has the emotional connection, Cuts Like A Knife had the raw youthful energy, but ‘..Fire’ was where he showcased his best songwriting. Typical then that it sold far less than the rest. What came after is best left to its own devices…
