I Sat On This All Day. Okay, Here It Is.
A choral group consisting of Toronto physicians, "Voices Rock Medicine" - men need not apply - singing "Rise Again." (the Rankins, 1993)
And, Vancouver's offering, the Phoenix Chamber choir.
Is it just me or does this seem the moment for some anthemic music just to keep the magic of civilization from extinction? Seriously, anybody else see that?
Maybe a few songs to remind us of what most of us, no matter the side, revere in this country is a crucial first step. We do write these really great songs. We just have to make them "our" songs. Canada 2000, Covid-19, what better time for those fed up with the past 30-40 years of neoliberalism, for a worthy anthem?
