The year was 1996, and though you may not have known it at the time, an obscure American artist named BJ Snowden released a song that would forever change the landscape of the Canadian music industry with her hit song “In Canada,” not to be confused with the classic “Oh Canada” anthem. Today I’m pleased to share this with you in its entirety.
However, before you listen to the song, I would like to give you a brief synopsis. In Canada has so much depth that, without a proper explanation, you may miss key points and even deep, world-view changing messages. In Canada is a song about Canada, a place where no one is ever mean, and you’ll be treated like a queen. Most importantly, our streets are very clean. I can say this with authority because it just so happens that I too am a Canadian.
So with that in mind, listen to the song, not just with your ears… but with your heart.
She’s right, you know.
Canada really is a wonderful place, and I’m happy to hear such an accomplished American pop star bring that message to not only the American people, but the world at large.
Remember that “Oh Canada” nonsense song I mentioned? If you’ve ever heard of it, then you know it’s our anthem. We sing it in school here, and at hockey games. But you know what? It’s crap… absolute crap compared to the glory of “In Canada,” a vastly superior song. Why our government didn’t pluck Ms. BJ from the clutches of America, I’ll never know…
Perhaps one day people will see the light, but until then you can find more of her intelligent, passionate music on BJs official website. Not only is her music classic, but her website as well; a true relic of a bygone Internet era.
