Quick Before it Melts

Head over heels

There’s really not a lot of explanation needed here today: it’s Juno weekend in Canada, and this year, Blue Rodeo is being inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, alongside the likes of Neil Young, Leonard Cohen, The Band, Joni Mitchell, Anne Murray, and Daniel Lanois.

There’s magic that is sparked when Jim Cuddy and Greg Keelor work together, creating that unmistakable Blue Rodeo sound album after album these past 25 years.  I’d venture to guess that there isn’t a Canadian out there who doesn’t have some special sentimental tie to one of their songs.  Whether you’re an ardent fan of the early days when it was Cuddy, Keelor, the stalwart Basil Donovan on bass, drummer Cleave Anderson and wunkerkind Bob Wiseman on keys on Outskirts, Diamond Mine, and Casino, or their more recent incarnation, we all have a favourite Blue Rodeo moment and memory.  This weekend, we’ll add another, as the boys take the stage in Ottawa to take their much deserved bow.

Head on over to the Quick Before It Melts Facebook page this weekend, where I’ll take a stroll down memory lane, revisiting some classic Blue Rodeo songs in honour of this year’s Canadian Music Hall of Fame inductees.  The fun gets started with “Outskirts”, the title track of their 1987 debut.
