19 days of songs from the ‘90s: Day 6

International Favourites Week!

IMG_20160802_115834My Toronto pals are going to think today’s list of my fave Canadian albums of the ‘90s is unhip—literally, in that it has no Tragically Hip on it. Also, no Eric’s Trip, Thrush Hermit or other alternative acts associated with the decade. Alas, none of those bands reached my ears way down South. And besides, I think Canadian alternative music really took off in the early aughts, right around the time I moved here— coincidence? – with Arcade Fire, Feist, Broken Social Scene and the like. So I stand by my list, dammit! (Sorry for swearing.)

5. The Caution Horses – Cowboy Junkies
4. Rufus Wainwright – Rufus Wainwright
3. Night Ride Home – Joni Mitchell
2. Harvest Moon – Neil Young
1. Ingenue – k.d. lang (A lovely and enduring record; we play it on many a Saturday morning! Top track: “Save Me”)
k.d. lang — Save Me
