Happy 4th of July to my American family and friends! If you're not on the eastern seaboard, may you have a great long weekend. For those of us in the path of Hurricane Arthur, take cover and be safe.

Up here in the Great White North, we celebrated Canada Day on Tuesday, which split up the work week into manageable little chunks.

Now that July has arrived, it's time for my monthly feature for 5 on Friday -- The Hit Makers.

Once a month I'm going to feature the songs that launched careers. I'll be looking at different musical styles and the groups or singers from those styles who I love the best.

To celebrate my home and native land, here are five of my favourite Canadian artists and the songs that brought them to the masses.

1 - High School Confidential -- Rough Trade

2 - Lovers in a Dangerous Time -- Barenaked Ladies

3 - Constant Craving -- k d lang

4 - Building a Mystery -- Sarah McLachlan 

5 - Brother Down -- Sam Roberts
