NOSTALGIA “It isn’t necessary to imagine the world ending in fire or ice. There are two other possibilities: one is paperwork, and the other is nostalgia.”- Frank Zappa Telling the stories behind our favorite songs has become a popular pastime. Hundreds of stories about songs of faith are featured in The Heart of Worship: Story Behind the Song, while popular music is covered in 1001 Songs: The Greatest Songs of All Time and the Artists, Stories, and Secrets Behind Them. Even the Chicken Soup for the Soul editors have compiled The Story Behind the Song: The Exclusive Personal Stories Behind Your Favorite Songs. LISTMANIA In pop culture, lists are everything.” – Popdose Which brings us to the stories behind songs composed by Canadians.

TRIVIA The brain may die, but the compulsion for trivia lives on.”- Molly Harper Every song has a story, and in some cases, the stories told about the genesis and enduring appealof the song are as enjoyable as the song itself.
