Canada Day Eh!

Bar B Ques, Beer and fireworks. Most people on this continent are gearing up for holiday festivities, what with Canada Day on July 1 and the Fourth of July for the Yanks down south. Most folks are probably going to be too busy knockin back a few cold brewski's, trying hard to blow up some fingers, rather than blog surfing. This here post is in honour of the great white north. Oh Canada and so forth. Thus homercat is going to be on a mini vacation which is gearing up right about now. Before I depart for Canada Day celebrations I put together a little compilation that will be perfect for everyones Canada Day needs. Most importantly all the artists are Canadian and secondly these are great tunes that are sure to perk up any festivities one may be enjoying. Even if you're not a canuck, this is a great collection that showcases how diverse Canadian music can be. I'll be back sometime next week. If anyone has a question about an album that any of these classic songs come from, where to buy or locate an album or any other question about the artists featured here, leave your question in the comments and I'll answer the best I can. Some of the songs here are lifted from albums that are out of print. So anyways everyone have your holidays be safe and save some beer for the homercat, eh.
