Okay I was just serving the web and came upon this:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/50_Tracks:_The_Canadian_Version

Anyone who voted for "Barenaked Ladies, 'If I Had $1000000'" needs to be shot on site.

Sure we have all listened to it once but to say that it is an essential song to Canadian music is BS.

*my short rant.

Okay apparently they were all pop songs so:

Pop music: In opposition to music that requires education or formation to appreciate, a defining characteristic of pop music is that anyone is able to enjoy it. Artistic concepts such as complex musical form and aesthetics are not a concern in the writing of pop songs, the primary objectives being audience enjoyment and commercial success.[4]

I guess every great song ever written can be ruled out of the list.

They missed the best Canadian song ever [Wink]

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

Watch yourself there, Druid, or we'll send the Shrub to Oz to personally appear in the Aussie video version of
Grandma got run over by a Reindeer.

I don't know what I was thinking... it seemed like a good idea at the time.
