Playlist: Songs fit for a king

As you may have heard, there's a new Prince George on the block. And so from the home of one Prince George to another, we here in northern B.C. are making a playlist of songs fit for a future king, starting with Royal Wood and "I Want Your Love."

For track two, we picked our very own northern royalty: King Crow and the Ladies from Hell with "In You Shadow."


 Track three came to us from self-described anti-monarchist Paul Wodchyc who recommended "Blue Suede Shoes" by the king of rock and roll.


 Track four is from listener Rob Hesse: the young New Zealand singer Lorde and "Royals."

And for track five, Blaine Bowe suggests a song from true Canadian music royalty: Neil Young and "Old King."


Mark Hanen of Dawson Creek writes,

"Prince George is no trailer park boy, but here is a kingly song suggestion for the royal young 'un. 'King of the Road' written and performed by Roger Miller.'

From the city of Prince George (to the royal Prince George), the band Concerns of Royalty with "Life Goes By."

The rich voice of Dan Mangan with "The Indie Queens Are Waiting."

And finally, something every prince needs when visiting Canada: Royal Canoe, and the song "Caught In A Loop."
