Hey Mr. President, listen to this
Yes, “American Woman” made the list. So did others you’d expect, like Stompin’ Tom’s “The Hockey Song,” and some you might not, like Parachute Club’s “Rise Up.”
Canadians have chosen 49 songs for President-elect Barack Obama’s playlist that help define this country north of the 49th parallel. The list was compiled by more than 130,000 votes over two weeks by listeners of CBC’s Radio 2.
“This is a unique and diverse list that represents a wide variety of artists and songs, both historic and current,” says Denise Donlon, executive director of English radio. Tops in jazz was Oscar Peterson’s “Hymn to Freedom”; Glenn Gould’s “Goldberg Variations” was top of the classical heap; Rush’s “Closer to the Heart” was No. 1 among pop/rock, urban or country songs; and Gilles Vigneault’s “Mon pays” was the favourite francophone tune.
The complete list is below. You can also visit the Web page, where the songs can be bought through iTunes.
