Thoughts of England

A song that came to mind when I was talking about road trips the other day was England by Great Big Sea. For me these guys put together the best band to come out of Canada, if not North America.

Brilliant musicianship, backed by great harmonies.

I was saddened to hear the band is no longer together, however the legacy of music they leave in their wake continues to provide me, along with many others with a huge amount of pleasure.

The video below is one of my favourite songs of theirs. “England”. The simplicity of the song means there is nowhere to hide for vocals or instruments and demands a perfect performance every time. Something Great Big Sea were renowned for delivering.
