I don't know if this has been done before on here, but I got the idea from the world forum. Are there any songs that remind you of certain provinces, cities or regions?


This song reminds me of Nova Scotia, in particular of Cape Breton Island. In Junior high we did some English assignment about this song. That same year my family went to Cape Breton to visit friends, and coincidentally while we were there this song came on the radio. I always think about that trip when I hear this song.

Newfoundland - this is actually a song by an Irish band that I got to know hanging out and partying in Dublin in my younger days, but it's also been quite popular in Newfoundland where it was redone by the local band The Irish Descendants. Anyway, it fits.

Manitoba and the Prairies in general - oddly enough it's in French. It's by Daniel Lavoie who is originally from Dunrea, Manitoba. Lavoie is a household name in the francophone world, a pretty big star in fact.

The animated video is itself a beautiful work of art IMO.
