The top ten singles in Canadian music

I have found some youtube videos of the performances and they are all below. It is a remarkable list of songs.

The Top 10... CBC says .... A followup to Bob Mersereau's The Top 100 Canadian Albums, the list is sure to provoke debate among music lovers.

Guess Who song American Woman is No. 1 on the list, one of four Guess Who singles chosen by a group of music lovers who helped compile the list. There are also two by BTO, including Taking Care of Business at No. 8 and two by Trooper, the power trio produced by Bachman.

1. American Woman/No Sugar Tonight, The Guess Who

2. Heart of Gold, Neil Young

3. The Weight, The Band

4. Summer of ’69, Bryan Adams

5. Hallelujah, Leonard Cohen

6. Born to be Wild, Steppenwolf

7. If You Could Read My Mind, Gordon Lightfoot

8. Takin’ Care of Business, Bachman-Turner Overdrive

9. Four Strong Winds, Ian & Sylvia

10. Snowbird, Anne Murray

Just an observation: It's heavy on the baby boomer generation music. No judgement, like I said, just an observation.
