Throwback Thursday: Bruce Cockburn

If you read this blog often, you know I'm always more excited to talk about Canadian artists than any other kind of artist. Of course I appreciate the beauty and talent in all artists, but I have a strong allegiance to my own folk and the sounds they produce - and therefore, they win, always.

On the first day this week that it hasn't looked like midnight in the middle of the morning, let's throw back to a cheery folk-rock classic from legend (and Ottawa-native) Bruce Cockburn and his 1979 Billboard hit "Wondering Where The Lions Are." Similar to all of Paul Simon's Graceland and America's Heart, Cockburn's album Dancing in the Dragon's Jaws is a friendly folk staple in my music collection, always managing to insert a tiny bit of sunshine into otherwise gloomy days.

Enjoy the happy strums and Cockburn's gentle croon - they're made for golden Thursdays like this.
