I had a few topics in mind for M, but since I gave Canadian literature a hard time yesterday, I thought I'd make up some ground by talking about Canadian music.
On Thursday night, Hubby and I went to see Bryan Adams. I know what you're thinking, but really, you had to know Bryan before he did that song for that movie. There wasn't a kid growing up in Canada in the 80's who didn't rock out to Summer of '69, or make-out to Heaven. And you know, the guy is pretty good live. Reckless will be forever in my music library.
It got me thinking about Canadian music. We have a spectacular music scene here. I'm not even talking about the Celiene Dions and the Shania Twains, or even the Michael Bubles or Justin Beibers, because for everyone of them there's a lesser known artist who could positively blow you away or break your heart. Here are just a few:
Elliot Brood, NQ Arbuckle, Luc Ducet, Great Big Sea, Chris Kirby, Great Lake Swimmers, Metric, Stars, Wintersleep, Said the Whale, Repartee, Arcade Fire, Cuff the Duke, City and Colour, Hawksley Workman, Blue Rodeo...
I really don't have room to name them all. So I'm leaving you with a little Bryan Adams, one of my favourites actually, in all it's 80's glory.
