The Top 100 Canadian Singles - brought to you by Bob
Mersereau and Goose Lane Editions, the team that assembled the
controversial, much discussed, best-selling volume, The Top 100
Canadian Albums. The Top 100 Canadian Singles will
undoubtedly stir the souls, ears, and tongues of music lovers
everywhere. And answer the question, for better or for worse.
Once again, Bob Mersereau has assembled a blue ribbon panel of
musicians, broadcasters, reviewers, managers, promoters,
record-label executives, retailers, roadies, and more to cast their
votes in a major, nationwide poll. John Roberts, Canada's original
VJ; Joel Plaskett; Sarah Slean; the late Paul Quarrington; CBC's
Stuart McLean; Sam Roberts; Sophie Durocher; and Eric Trudel all
contributed lists - along with hundreds more.
Whose single will make it to the top 10? The top 40? The top
100? Neil or Leonard? Feist or Alanis? k.d. lang or Stompin' Tom?
The Guess Who or Arcade Fire? Gilles Vigneault or k-os? This
oversized, full colour book features in-depth interviews with
musicians, fascinating facts, musician-penned sidebars, documentary
photographs, cover art, and much, much more.
