You may or may not be familiar with a Canadian band called the Tragically Hip. Last year their lead singer, Gord Downie, announced he had terminal brain cancer. They embarked on one last tour and I think a good portion of the country watched their final live concert on the CBC (of course).
Gord Downie passed away this morning and even though something is expected, it does not make it any less sad. The Hip has always been a part of my playlist since Road Apples came out in 1991. There are songs that can immediately take me back to certain times in my life and that got me thinking about the soundtrack of my life. The Hip would definitely be on it. Also, if you pay attention to the lyrics there are bits and pieces of Canadian history and other truly Canadian references. He was a poet.
What would be on your soundtrack?
