PLAYLIST: Happy Canada Day, True North Strong & Freaky

Pure Canadiana from strombo on 8tracks Radio.

All right: it's Canada Day, and that means you're gonna need some top-notch tunes.

We've got you covered - just click the play button at the top of the post to listen to our Canada Day playlist.

A little Stompin' Tom. A touch of Rush. Some Sloan. And a few Canadiana curveballs (Godspeed You! Black Emperor will take any barbecue to the next level).

So hook up your speakers, crank up the sound, and enjoy an awesome July 1st.

And while you're at it, make sure to tune in to our Canada Day Special on CBC Television at 7 pm. It's going to be a great one: Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir are in the red chair and Ron James is on the Panel.

Check out George's take on the culture you need to make your Day awesome:

If you happen to be in London, England today, you'll want to head to Trafalgar Square. George is hosting Canada Day London there, featuring performances from The Tragically Hip, The Sheepdogs, Jann Arden, Arkells and Northern Cree.

Good things, Canada.
