Just for Canada's 150th birthday, people were asked to pick their favourties.

Hallelujah made the list twice. I am rather surprised they picked the Leonard Cohen version as their #1 hit. Maybe they felt they couldn't do otherwise, as he wrote the song. But his version is raw and unvarnished, and lacks the beautiful harmonies of some of the other covers. Too bad he didn't live long enough to see this. :cry:

There's a number of these songs I'm not familiar with, so I'll have to give them a listen. I'm also a bit surprised that Ian and Sylvia's "Four Strong Winds" missed the list.

When the night has been too lonely, and the road has been too long,
And you think that love is only for the lucky and the strong,
Just remember in the winter far beneath the bitter snows,
Lies the seed, that with the sun's love, in the spring becomes The Rose.
