In honor of Canada day - today's top 10 is devoted to Canadian rock! Something like - 5 favorite songs, with 1 per band, something like that...

1. Neil Young - Like a Hurricane
2. Leonard Cohen - Bird on a Wire
3. Gordon Lightfoot - Sundown
4. The Band - Up on Cripple Creek
5. Tragically Hip - Courage
6. Joni Mitchell - Court and Spark
7. Rush - Tom Sawyer
8. Arcade Fire - Month of May
9. BTO - You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet
10. New Pornographers - Mutiny I Promised You

Video? Maybe a couple who have been overlooked above.... for instance - I did not know that Terry Jacks was Canadian!

And no tribute to our neighbor tot he north would be complete without their tribute to the USA:

And a band featuring long form music, I can't really fit on a list of great songs - Godspeed You! Black Emperor:
