You could get the Big Sugar version of 'Oh Canada', no lyrics, just pure guitar (kinda like what Hendrix did to their anthem, but without all the feedback). It's found on the "Brother and Sister..." album...

-For something really traditional there's "The Maple Leaf Forever" by Alexander Muir.

-Stan Rogers is great. Very Canadian.

All Hell for a Basement rocks, although when I was in Calgary for the stampede it got overplayed!

My patriotic song...would be Ohhhh What a Feeling by Crowbar...

How about that Guess Who tune:

Runin' back to Saskatoon ?

Right era wrong band.. Runnin back to Saskatoon was done by.. The Stampeders not the guess who...

Best vocals though.. "these eyes".. what an awesome tune....( burton cummings) the Guess who..Trev is right Arrogant Worms rock....

The Maple Leaf Forever.. played on bag pipes though.. sends chills down me spine... most patriotic song we have... Glass tigers song "the thin red line" does the same for me... and I'm not even of Scottish ancestry... Love the pipes though.. Blue bonnets, Black bear ,Scotland the Brave, Mull o' kintyre... all bring a chill to me spine....

Maple Leaf Forever.

http://collectionscanada.ca/obj/m2/f7/17304.mp3


In Days of yore,
From Britain's shore,
Wolfe the dauntless hero came
And planted firm Britannia's flag
On Canada's fair domain.
Here may it wave,
Our boast, our pride,
And join in love together,
The thistle, shamrock, rose entwined,
The Maple Leaf Forever
.
[CHORUS]
.
The Maple Leaf
Our Emblem Dear,
The Maple Leaf Forever.
God save our Queen and heaven bless,
The Maple Leaf Forever.


At Queenston Heights and Lundy's Lane
Our brave fathers side by side
For freedom's home and loved ones dear,
Firmly stood and nobly died.
And so their rights which they maintained,
We swear to yield them never.
Our watchword ever more shall be:
The Maple Leaf Forever!
.
[CHORUS]
.
Our fair Dominion now extends
From Cape Race to Nootka Sound
May peace forever be our lot
And plenty a store abound
And may those ties of love be ours
Which discord cannot sever
And flourish green for freedom's home
The Maple Leaf Forever.
.
[CHORUS]

and of course the politically sensitive version:

Maple Leaf Forever

Alexander Muir's 1867 up-the-Empire standard, which was Canada's unofficial national anthem until the arrival of O Canada, has new lyrics. The updated, politically sensitive Maple Leaf Forever, with lyrics by Romanian émigré Vladimir Radian, received its first full orchestral treatment on June 27, 1997 at a free concert by the Toronto Symphony Orchestra.
Radian, a mathematician turned songwriter/actor/poet, came to Canada a decade ago, completely unaware of Maple Leaf Forever and its crowing lyrics. He discovered the song while listening to CBC Radio's Metro Morning show in Toronto when it ran a contest to replace the old lyrics, which were distasteful to some ears and merely comical to others.

Maple Leaf Forever

O, land of blue unending skies,
Mountains strong and sparkling snow,
A scent of freedom in the wind,
O'er the emerald fields below.

To thee we brought our hopes, our dreams,
For thee we stand together,
Our land of peace, where proudly flies,
The Maple Leaf forever.

Chorus:
Long may it wave, and grace our own,
Blue skies and stormy weather,
Within my heart, above my home,
The Maple Leaf forever!

I've actually never seen anybody say that before. I hope I never see it again. Runnin' back to Saskatoon is a Guess Who classic. Check who wrote it. And I've learned to really, really hate the Guess Who since I've been in Winnipeg. Wheat Field Soul my ass...shameles self promotion and DJ's who giz in their shorts whenever Burton sells a cheeseburger is more like it.

The Stampeders are great. Runnin' Back to Saskatoon is a great song, especially if you have to to go there, but it ain't a Stampeders song.

your right Rev Blair.. I don't know what I was thinking about... Guess Who... here's a list of all the stampeders stuff... pretty sure They did a cover of it live in concert.. a number of years ago... saw them in Calgary... funny enough at the stampede.....couldn't have been in the 70's (F88k that was a long time ago) no it had to have been...it was 92-94.. something like that....

i dont believe no one has mentioned Classified and just for you he has a song that is called the maritimes u NEED to get it, its amazing! check out his other songs such as hey now, 5th element, its sickening and unexpected.

also if you want to be even more patriotic you should look into french music!! Canada is after all a billigual contry. A few good french bands would be cowboys frnguants (lots of social critisism very good opens your eyes to some strong truths), Manau (very good songs catchy good beats), Yvon krevé (rapper with good songs if u like rap), Sans Pression (also rap best songs are probly the ones with Yvon Krevé), Marie-Mai (good soft songs), Noir Silence (just good tunes), Zachari Richard (very cultural songs mostly acadian) and there is much more if u want specific songs or more bands feel free to PM me or if anyone has other good french music they would like to introduce me to i would love to discuss of it with you.!

Maple leaf forever, for sure..
but nothing to me, says Canada more than a loud, drunken version of
Hockey Night in Canada.
The louder the better!
