New Music

The theme is Canadiana. God knows about our politics, but at least the music's good.

Now's a good time to press  play on jukebox on left side of screen (scroll down till you're under the chair).
"The West Wind" by Tom Thompson (1917)

Gave Neil Young pride of position for obvious reasons and cause of this new diner theme I've been thinking of for the site. (The music video to "Harvest Moon" is set in a diner.)

A little old, a little new. Mostly obvious, all true.

I apologize for some obvious omissions but doesn't have The Hip's "Wheat Kings" and it doesn't have Blue Rodeo's "Hasn't Hit Me Yet" either. Also, "Bobcaygeon" just wouldn't fit with the other four songs I chose (but I slipped it in at the very bottom of the list).


  1. Your combination of music, art and Canadiana made me think of the Rheostatic's musical accompaniment for the Group of Seven. Martin (my cousin) Tielli's music has always been very visual, very tied to the Canadian landscape.
    P.S. Just looked at the playlist -you already know!

  2. Leslie, not too long ago a couple friends and I would have fallen over ourselves to know we knew someone related to Martin. The Rheos live were a thing to behold, Martin in particular.
