Canada’s Best Music – 5 Songs At A Time – Part 11
In this edition of Canada’s essential 500 songs we have an acclaimed producer, writer, singer, 2 more classics from Canadian icons, and a couple of classic rockers, one from the 70’s and the other a bit more recent. A pretty good set for you.
Daniel Lanois is the acclaimed one noted above. He has produced albums for Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, Ron Sexsmith, Neil Young and Peter Gabriel. This, in addition to writing and playing classics such as “Shine”. As you are listening to this tune, read the lyrics. Good writer.
Another classic from Burton Cummings. Likely my favorite solo song by Burton Cummings. It has echoes of the Guess Who classic “These Eyes”.
Canadian punk legends from the mid 70’s, Simply Saucer join the list with their classic “Electro Rock. Daniel Lanois produced some of their material back then as well. Small world.
“It’s Saturday Night”
Another entry from The Razorbacks. Kick back and enjoy as a Canadian band does rockabilly.
5. Neil Young
A live version from 1973 of Neil’s classic of of Harvest. What a talent, what an album.
