THE HONESTY'S TOO MUCH:  If there's one place that lies uncomfortable in the heretofore unknown intersection between this blog's loves and hates, it's random Canada-bashing ... but in slideshow form.  But if you can stomach it, this HuffPo list of Fifty Worst Canadian Songs Ever is worth your time because #10 is Alanis Morissette's pre-Jagged "Too Hot," which as the description confirms is truly a lost Robin Sparkles masterpiece.  Also, "Sometimes When We Touch" is only in second place, because Nickelback.

    Same here, Roger. Also, that's not an especially bad Rush song.

    True story: When that Dan Hill song came on the radio a few months back while I was driving to work, I turned it up and started belting along. I even rolled down my windows so everybody around me could enjoy it too.


    Suck it, HuffPo.

    No Gordon Lightfoot? "As long verses go, it was longer than most . . ."


    The other criticism -- and this will be the only time I will ver say this -- French Canadian rap was underrepresented.


    The greatest Canadian song remains "Penalty Box," By Dave "The Hammer" Schultz.

    I didn't think much of the list to begin with. Then I looked at their "100 Greatest Canadian Songs" and it included Call Me Maybe. I'm done.

  6. No love or hate for this song? Sad. It doesn't deserve to be ignored. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MXnTbmPxv5g
