5 on Friday - Set 177

Travis at Trav's Thoughts invites everyone to lay down a short set of music that takes their fancies for his 5 on Friday meme.

It's that time again, kiddies! Time to revel in all things Canadian.

Happy Canada Day to all of my fellow Canadian bloggers, readers, fellow writers and authors. Have a great long weekend.

1 - The First Cut is the Deepest - Keith Hampshire

English-born Keith Hampshire grew up in Calgary, Alberta and does my favorite version of this song. He also used to host a TV show called Music Machine in the mid-70s if anyone remembers that (I do!)

2 - Pieces of You - Lennie Gallant

Lennie Gallant is an Acadian singer-songwriter from Prince Edward Island (where Brad and I are headed for our vacation next week! Yay!)

4 - I'm on Fire For You Baby April Wine

I LOVE this song. Love it. April Wine hails from right here in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

4 - Summer Fling k d lang

Adore this one, also. What a perfect summery song. 

5 - Live Without Me - Raoul and The Big Time

This is a new video shot by my Ryerson buddy John M. Tran, and directed by Ryerson buddy Adam Greydon Reid. Looks great!

Song starts at the 2:22 mark.
