The last two weeks of panelists' choices were for songs from 1990 to the present. This was not, as you might imagine, too popular with some of the younger listeners, who felt that their music was being disregarded. There were, in fact, only two songs from the new millennium on the final list - "Crabbuckit" by K-OS, and "Brother Down" by Sam Roberts, both from the second week. |
The song I want to talk about, however, is from 1992. This was the first hit for a bunch of boys from Scarborough - can you finish the lyric?
"We wouldn't have to eat Kraft Dinner.
(But we would eat Kraft Dinner. Of course we would, we'd just eat more.
And buy really expensive ketchup with it.
That's right, all the fanciest__________)"
Now, fifty tracks doesn't even begin to cover all the good music made in this country in the last 105 years. Personally, I would have liked to see the Stampeders' "Sweet City Woman" and Foot in Cold Water's "Make Me Do Anything You Want" as contenders, even if they didn't make the final list. What about Chilliwack? The Five Man Electrical Band? The Rankins, for heaven's sake?|
Anyway, I'd like to end this quiz with a piece of music that was not even considered, so far as I know, for the list, but which every Canadian is familiar with. "Define a generation"? Heck, this music, in its way, defines a nation. It's the theme music for a television show which has been on the air for the whole lives of most of us, a show which, for much of the year, owns Saturday night on CBC. The 'hosts' of the show have been, over the years, such luminaries as Foster Hewitt, Danny Gallivan, Dave Hodge, and Ron MacLean.
This is an instrumental piece, so I'll have to hum it for you.
Which TV show is the following the theme music of?
"Da da da da dut dah
Da da da da dut DAH DA"
Note - as of 2008, the CBC no longer owns the rights to this piece of music. I'm still asking for the name of the TV show it was associated with for so many years.
