The OTHER 50 Tracks

Some background for those of you who don’t listen to the CBC (i.e. ALL of you). The Corp is in the middle of an interesting exercise to pick Canada’s 50 most essential songs. For the last couple of months they’ve been bringing in groups of music experts (and Leah McClaren) to debate which tunes should be added to the list.
This rigorous analytical approach has resulted in a list which excludes songs released after 2000 – ignoring one of the most fruitful five year periods in Canadian music – and includes Rise Up by the Parachute Club and Echo Beach by Martha and the Muffins.
This heresy, friends, will not stand.
