Canada’s Best Music – 5 Songs At A Time – Part 8

It is Sunday and time for the next 5 of Canada’s best music.  In this edition, we have an alternative/folk player, some classic rock and some unidentifiable pop.

1. Matthew Good

“I’m a Window”

Taken in Maple Ridge, outside of Matthew Good'...

A classic tune from one of Canada’s current day rock heroes.  This is a live acoustic version of I’m A Window, in 2007. 

2. Junkhouse


An Alt-Rock group from the 1990’s, Ontario’s Junkhouse enters my list with an excellent tune called “Shine”. 

3. Coney Hatch

“Stand Up”

Friction (Coney Hatch album)

Coney Hatch, from Toronto, is an 80’s classic rock band.  Moderately succesful, they released 3 albums during their run in the sun.Star on Canada's Walk of Fame for the rock ban...

A further entry to the list by Canada’s biggest selling band.  This is a live version of Bus Rider, performed by the original band on a reunion tour in 2001.  This song was actually a collaboration between Cummings and Kurt Winter.  Kurt and Greg Leskiw were tapped to replace Randy Bachman when he left the group.  Not that it took 2 players to replace him, just a change in philosophy as the band evolved, utilizing some additional flexibility.

5. The Headstones


Teeth and Tissue

A second entry by 90’s rockers, The Headstones.

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. I’m thinking Bus Rider is my new favorite song.

  2. Really dug the Junkhouse tune. I’ll check out the rest tomorrow.
    Haven’t heard the Guess Who in at least 15 years. Looking forward to it.
