A Song That Reminds Me Of Somewhere

There are not a lot of people who can stake claim as Quintessentially Canadian quite as certainly as the members of The Tragically Hip.  There simply isn’t another band I think of as readily when someone asks about Canadian music.  Sure, there are bands that have been around longer (but not many…Rush comes to mind, but few others) and there are bands that are more actively representing our great country on a more global scale, but that’s part of what makes the Hip ours.  And that’s what it is, it’s that they’re ours.  For the most part, they’re our little secret and have been for the past 20 years.  They make music with references no one else would understand, they perform as though they’re just chilling at the cottage with a couple of beers, and they wear the maple leaf as proudly as anyone could.

I could have picked any one of their songs and my reasoning would have been the same – [insert The Hip song here] reminds me of my favourite place on earth – Central Ontario.  [song] reminds me of lakes and Adirondack chairs and the sound of a loon in the morning.  [song] reminds me of fresh air and relaxation and the sound of a boat motor.  [song] reminds me of Canada.

I chose Little Bones because it’s one of my favourites.  Again, I don’t have one particular favourite, but this one will do just fine.
