Here are our top 5 Tragically Hip Songs
5 – Ahead By A Century
Definitely because I think this is such a classic.
Gord Downie sings it so much different than album cut.
4 – Grace Too
Still remember them playing it in concert. It was fantastic.
And Day For Night is my favourite album.
3 – New Orleans Is Sinking
The live Killer Whale Tank version of this one is super intense and it’s about marrying a whale.
Gord Downie just comes up with some of the most bizarre stuff and it’s fantastic.
2 – Wheat Kings
THIS one is so Canadian. It’s about David Milgaard being wrongly accused of murder and the line “No one’s interested in something you didn’t do” is fantastic.
1 – Bobcaygeon
This has to come in at #1.
I saw it live on Canada Day and when you see it, with everyone singing along, the emotion is flowing and the tears are flowing. It’s beautiful.
Reducing it to 5 was pretty hard. Tell us your Top 5!
