Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!
Did I ever mention that I’m a wannabe Canadian? I lived a glorious year and a half in Montreal some years back, traveled to Vancouver for Expo ’84, got soaked by the falls in Niagara and have visited family in Toronto, as well as the funny-named Mississauga. And I’d go back again and again and again.
And, for a long time, I’ve been a huge fan of bands and performers from across the border, from Malajube and Arcade Fire, in recent years, to Rush — if just for the awesome drum set — and even Anne Murray, who rocks very slowly. (As I write this, my husband is playing “Danny’s Song” on iTunes. He loves that line, “Even though we ain’t got money, I’m so in love with you honey…”)
So to celebrate our Canadian friends, we’re giving away a Canada Rocks Bundle that includes lullaby renditions of Rush, The Tragically Hip and Nickelback, to one lucky winner.
