From us owls to you, we want to wish you a very Happy Canada Day! Without the music of this great country, this blog never would happen so to celebrate our nation’s birthday, here’s a list of songs we feel should be on your Canada Day Playlist:
A song that captures both that feeling of summer and the wonders of the Athabasca River in Alberta, Aidan Knight’s biggest hit is essential Canada Day material. For more Canadian fun with Aidan Knight, check out his unreleased song, “Canadian Lovesong.”
Although it might not as upbeat as some of the other songs on the list, Bahamas’ “Montreal” is a heartbreaking slow jam for the ages perfect for your Canada day evening.
About Canada’s most known highway, The Constantines’ “Trans Canada” will keep you going throughout the long weekend even if you’re stuck in highway traffic.

You don’t like a piano-pop song that addresses Canadian politics? You’re crazy then.
Staying in this Canada day? Travel across the country with Elliott Brood then.

This sounds wrong, but in fact the guys wrote this song while driving down Toronto’s Don Valley Parkway. For a more rocking Canada Day party.
