Heh, my dad was playing some music on our computer earlier and he played a Tragically Hip song-"New Orleans Is Sinking". It wasn't bad.

Heh, they're an odd group. But I like the couple of songs I've heard by them.

Rush...they're okay. The lead singer does have a really different voice.

Neil Young rocks, and the Barenaked Ladies are pretty cool (is it just me, or do they remind anyone else of XTC in a way?).

Didn't know these artists were from Canada.

Some of these other artists listed are ones I've never heard of before.

Another band I thought of that's from Canada: Glass Tiger.

Not a big Celine Dion fan, and Loverboy's okay, but...I personally like Alanis. .

Everyone who hasn't heard the new Tragically Hip single, should. I've never been a big fan of the Hip but that song is great.

Sum 41 recently had a bit of a close call in Congo, apparently they were over with War Child Canada doing work... I give them props for being there either way....

Per capita, Canada has produced the worst mainstream music acts compared to any other country in the world.

Let's take a look at what Canada has submitted, shall we? Nickelback, Default, Rush, Danko Jones, Three Days Grace, Theory of a Deadman, Alanis, Celine Dion, Avril Lavigne, Snow, Swollen Members, etc. etc. the list just goes on and on! What has the rest of the world done to deserve this?!

Now let's take a look at some of the better music Canada can call it's own: Broken Social Scene (one of the best band's in the world), Kid Koala, The Weakerthans, Stars, Boards of Canada (aren't they from the UK though? I've heard both).

Then there's the more maintstream and quite tolerable acts of Pilate, The Tea Party, and a few others.

I'm far too opinionated, aren't I?

I was never a fan but Bran Van 3000 deserve to be mentioned (I guess).

Sarah Harmer and Sarah Slean are two of my favorites. Sarah Harmer was just here at the Winnipeg Folk Festival. I met Sarah Slean a few years back and she was really cool. I hung out backstage at a Hawksley Workman concert last year too. </bragging>

Sam Roberts' cd is really good; he did a concert here last month, but I missed it.

I used to be obsessed with Alanis Morrissette when I was in 6th grade. She's still kinda cool in my opinion.
