Saturday Music Memories – Our National Treasures The “Hip”

There are certain things that citizens hold near and dear to their hearts in their home countries.

In Canada we have hockey, The Tim Horton’s coffee shop chain, and for music we have The Tragically Hip.

They burst on to the scene in the late 80’s and have made quality music that has united a nation for close to 30 years now (wow I must be getting old).

In the spring of 1991 I graduated from high school, and our class embarked on a bus trip from Winnipeg, Manitoba across the border to Minneapolis, Minnesota. We were off to a fun-filled place called Apple River. It was an awesome time, and with 10+ hours on a bus each way, the music flowed (among other things) for a bunch of 17 and 18-year-old rowdies.

At that time, I had no interest in the Tragically Hip, but it seemed to be on constant repeat for the entire trip! Before you knew it, I was hooked, and this album did it to me. Their first real statement on Canadian airwaves called “Road Apples”.

Here is the biggest hit of that album – “Little Bones“.

Enjoy and have a FANTASTIC weekend.
