One of the best Canadian songs of all time. The theme from the racoons.

Barenaked Ladies - "Jane" (Official Music Video)

Love this song espcailly because it was about the Jane Bus and Jane and St. Clair

I love the following quote...

About the song ...

The title character is "Jane St. Clair", and is named after the intersection of Jane Street and St. Clair Avenue in Toronto. Steven Page recalls that co-writer Stephen Duffy saw the intersection on a map and remarked that it sounded like the most beautiful intersection in the world; Page "didn't wanna break his heart to tell him it wasn't." Page was also noted to have said, "the next song I'm gonna write is gonna be called Markham Ellesmere;" the major suburban intersection of Markham Road and Ellesmere Road is close to where Page grew up in the Scarborough section of Toronto.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jane_(song)

I took the Jane Bus on a daily basis from being a teen to being in University... there is nothing that wonderful about Jane and St. Clair lol.

There was someone that I once thought was special that live near there .... but reality is they were not so special and neither is that inspection. Both underwheleming and undeserving of inspiring this cool song.

If I had a million dollar... I then want too... why? Because that is just me :P ...

Happy Wednesday.
