63 – Top 5 Songs from Canadian Artists

Oh the good ol’ Ranking Game!

Sorry, it’s that time of the year again where the folks at Ranked break out their toques and sip their Timmies on their chesterfields as they discuss some more great things about Canada! Canada is the land of many things. It’s the land of overly polite people, beautiful scenery, but also the land some of the best god damn music on the planet! This year join Tuong La and Moose Riding Mounties Keish Saunders, Shannon Godelie, and Laura Gordon as they talk aboot and celebrate the Top 5 Songs from Canadian Artists!

Ground Rules

  • Songs are from Canadian Artists (duh!)
  • How “Canadian” a song is can factor in as a tie breaker, but we are ranking them purely on enjoyment for the most part (episode is not MOST Canadian song)
  • Doesn’t matter when the song came out
  • Can nominate from different genres
  • size of the hit can also be a factor (ie winning awards) but it’s up to the table if they enjoy it
  • Try to get a variety of songs from different genres


We compiled a nifty playlist of all the songs that we nominated and in our honourable mentions for your listening pleasure! Check it out and enjoy!
