This #MapleLeafMarch has not been nearly as much fun as it was last year.
Mostly because I had most of these songs in draft for a year and had to stare at them, their omissions teasing me like some siren, calling me back to Canada.
Take Rheostatics. They're iconic, they're unique... and they didn't fit in last year (probably because I overdosed on Cœur de Pirate). Even this year, I'm slotting them in on a Saturday. Do not take that as any reflection of their influence on Canadian music. They're not a band that generated a lot of hits, but they DO persist, still.
So, take this song, a classic from the 1996 The Blue Hysteria album, and enjoy it.
