They are classics, one and all!

Hit Me With Your Best Shot, Pretty Lady named Cdn classics by Socan
TORONTO (CP) – Pat Benatar’s Hit Me With Your Best Shot and Trooper’s Pretty Lady were among five oldies added Monday to the list of homegrown classics by the Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada.
Jann Arden’s Insensitive, Paul Carrack’s Don’t Shed A Tear and Nick Gilder’s Hot Child In the City rounded out the list of tracks, which passed the 100,000-airplay mark on domestic radio in 2004.
All the songs were written by Canadians.
In addition to marking classics, Socan, which collects and distributes royalty cheques on behalf of songwriters, acknowledged newly written songs which dominated radio last year.
They included Nelly Furtado’s Powerless and Try, Sarah McLachlan’s Fallen and Stupid, Sarah Harmer’s Almost, k-os’s Crabbuckit, Finger Eleven’s One Thing and Emerson Drive’s Waitin’ On Me.
The songwriters were to receive trophies at a gala dinner reception on Monday night.
