Enid - Barenaked Ladies


Enough Is Enough - Toronto
Not to be confused with the April Wine song of the same name.


Entry Nous - Rush
Theme seems to be Canadian bands this morning.


Escape (The Pina Colada Song) - Rupert Holmes
A non-Canadian. This song makes me feel good even though the 2 main characters are reprehensible.


Even It Up - Heart
The last Heart song I was really into.

I told my story about this a couple years ago. A refresher for anyone who wants it:

First song I ever slow-danced to. After the dance, she went back to her friends. I couldn't find her for the rest of the night. The next day, my cousin (who was there) told me that I was leaning too far forward and she was forced to lean back awkwardly for the whole dance, so she was probably avoiding me. That's ok, she'd used so much hairspray her hair was like a wicker basket and my face was in it for the whole song. Aah, l'amour...

Fake Plastic Trees - Radiohead
Great song. But back in the day, I paid $10 for this on CD single, accidentally thinking it was the whole album with 3 bonus tracks. Nope, just the 3 tracks.



The Farmers Song - Murray McLauchlan
First time hearing this. It's a pretty standard song template... one that a local New England band The Fools used several times to parody the genre.

NSFW lyrics......

Free Fallin' - Tom Petty
This is a song which is "our song" now. It really doesn't sound like a really good "our song" when you listen to the lyrics. But one evening while my now wife was living in WV and I was in Toronto we were ICQing and I had the radio on in background. They played Free Fallin' and that thought the experience of free falling felt like the emotional experience I was experiencing. I mentioned that to my now wife over ICQ and it became our song despite the lyrics. And I have never actually free falled but I can imagine the experience. That will be enough for me.


Freewill - Rush


From This Moment On - Shania Twain
Another song sort of tied to the old girlfriend.


Funky Cold Medina - Tone-Loc
Date rape song.


General Hand Grenade - Trooper
