Happy Canada Day!

You know that little trip down memory lane I took the other night, listening to Roger Whittaker? Well I found this, and felt it was highly appropriate to post on Canada Day.



"CANADA IS was written by two young Canadians: Eric Robertson and Steve Hyde. To me it is special... very special. It sums up in words and music my feelings for a country I have visited and enjoyed so many times. I have sung it on countless occasions in concert since it was first recorded in 1974 and every time, without exception, it has been emotionally and movingly received.

In all my world travels, it is quite the loveliest tribute to any country I have ever heard. It is appropriate to release it as a single now. To Canada - Thanks for all our good times. I salute your future."
~ Roger Whittaker

In other news, I find it profoundly annoying that lj comment notification is slow when there is lj drama going on. Geez lj, get it together!

Something about Roger always makes me misty. <3

Didn't even notice my comments weren't coming through until you pointed it out, thanks. :)
