Canada is making a national music playlist. What songs should be included?
To celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017, the Canadian federal government plans to spend $17.5m on local community projects and a national musical “soundtrack”.
The plan was announced by Canadian heritage minister Mélanie Joly at Toronto’s Daniels Spectrum Theatre on Monday. She spoke in front of a string orchestra on Monday morning who later played Drake’s Know Yourself – perhaps a hint of its place on the country’s definitive song list?
Of the funding, approximately $7.5m will go to the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and be used to fund “the Canada 150 musical mosaic”, a soundtrack created with the Polaris Music Prize that will feature over 36 orchestras from across the country and showcase work of Canadian musicians.
If Canada is going to compile a list of songs identifying it to the world, there are plenty of contenders! CDN Movement what songs do you think should make the cut?
