interesting choice to begin the second side of the album. I’m fairly certain the first time I heard this song I played it three times in a row!


3. “LET US GO LAUGHING” from High Winds White Sky (1971)


The line “Evening holds the bones of day,” always gets me. Just brilliant stuff. I vividly remember staring off at the cover image of this album and always feeling a bit of a chill.


4. “MAMA JUST WANTS TO BARRELHOUSE ALL NIGHT LONG” from Night Vision (1973)


This smooth bluesy number is a classic in Bruce’s repertoire. When asked how one would ‘barrelhouse’ in 2002, Bruce’s response was: “I don’t know, actually... it’s sort of whatever you think it is.”


5. “WONDERING WHERE THE LIONS ARE” from Dancing in the Dragon’s Jaws (1979)


While this reggae-pop song might feel lost amongst the jazzy and folk songs on the album, it helped Bruce secure more interest outside of Canada.


6. “TOKYO” from Humans (1980)


As a kid, I always loved that line about the dice: “Me and all these other dice bouncing around in the cup.” But I always sang it as “me and all these other guys…”


7. “THE COLDEST NIGHT OF THE YEAR” from Mummy Dust (1981)


This bluesy semi-sweet love letter to


the city of Toronto is chilling and hard to imagine as a single. It was written during the sessions of Inner City Front, but ended up on a handful of compilations.


8. “THE TROUBLE WITH NORMAL” from The Trouble with Normal (1983)


It’s amazing looking back now and thinking of a little version of myself trying to sing along to this: “Callous men in business costume speak computerese/Play pinball with the Third World trying to keep it on its knees”


9. “PEGGY’S KITCHEN WALL” from Stealing Fire (1984)


Another reggae-inspired song. I still love everything about this song, the build-up, the bassline, the acoustic guitar. Absolutely perfect! Don’t even get me started on Stealing Fire’s iconic album art.


10. “IF A TREE FALLS” from Big Circumstance (1988)


After hearing this song as a kid, I realized that Bruce was singing about environmental and political issues. Between this song and “Call it Democracy” I started to clue in that songs didn’t just have to be catchy.
