So if you don’t like in Canada (Kanadaland, Cannuckistan, ect.) today is Canada Day. And thus I get a day off from work and should also launch fireworks or something. But in celebration of Canada getting old and stuff, I’m going to be finding music videos that happen to celebrate things that are Canadian. Happy Canada Day.
South Park – Blame Canada
Matt Stone and Trey Parker seem to have a secret love with Canada which they greatly express with song and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. Canadians pop up frequently in South Park and it’s always hilarious when it happens. Even French Canada.
South Park – French Canada
Best to stay out of French Canada without a translator.
Tragically Hip – Bobcaygeon
A simple video, with a typical Canadian Riot tossed in there. I mean it’s not the most energetic song to put to a video, but it sort of has this sleepy Ontario Town to it (which is what I’m sure Bobcaygeon has going for it). Anyways, if you’ve ever been in Canada during a riot, that concert is basically what happens, people riot in a polite and orderly fashion.
Great Big Sea – Ordinary Day
Great Big Sea is a huge band from the East coast and they always seem to add a bit of that into their Songs. This is also like a song that pretty much show cases all the good clean fun that you can have in Maritimes, by singing on a rugby pitch and then taking part in it. As for the other good fun to be had:
Donnie Dumphy – Having a Time
HAVING A TIME!
It’s Canada Day! GO HAVE A TIME!
