It’s Canada Day on Monday, a holiday when people north of the 49th parallel take a day off work to wave their flag, dress in red and white, listen to outdoor concerts, eat immense quantities of food at backyard barbecues and watch the local fireworks show.
So it’s fitting that instead of writing about marketing today, I do a little bit of flag waving of my own.
If you’re Canadian (and even if you’re not) enjoy this playlist of songs while you’re wishing Canada a happy birthday. The songs are by Canadian artists and many of the lyrics pay tribute to some aspect of our great country. And don’t worry–this play list is Bieber-free.
For more great Canada Day playlists, check out the Ottawa Citizen’s 20 Great Songs for Canada Day.
Enjoy and feel free to add your own suggested songs in the comments.
Happy 146th birthday, Canada!
