For Tragically Hip fans

45 posts in this topic

For all you Tragically Hip fans out there, what are your top 5 songs by them that aren't singles or did not receive radio play. Basically songs that aren't well known by them. Here are mine, in no particular order

Yawning or Snarling (from Day for Night), Lionized (from Fully Completely), It Can't Be Nashville Every Night (from In Between Evolution), On the Verge (from Road Apples), 700 ft. Ceiling (from Trouble at the Henhouse)

Interested to see what your guys' picks are.

The Hip rock!

Can't think of five off the top of my head, but So Hard Done By is one of my all-time favourites.

Sorry do you mean that collection of whinny noise that somehow passes as music here in Canada? But I guess if I come on to CDC to read all the whiners garbage it would make sense that I would listen to that trash.

You must have trouble reading. Here I'll help...it's in the first line. "for Tragically Hip fans"

Amazing music, amazing writing by Gord Downie and the rest of the band. ^ this guy up here seems to also have trouble with his hearing, I guess it's a tough life if you don't weaken!

-It's a good life if you don't weaken

-Gus the polar bear

-Thugs

-The Luxury

-Family Band

All time favorite is: Nautical Disaster

What a masterpiece!

Although I no longer listen to The Hip, they are arguably the most popular Canadian band (in Canada).

That said, I have always been partial to Tiger the Lion.

I wouldn't classify the Hip as 'whiney.' That's more like Our Lady Peace.

Instead, i would classify them as 'done.' But they're still putting out albums. Why?

Of course it is! it also happens to be the Whinest song of them all. Hey if you like that nasaly brand of singing thats up to you but if you truly like that song you must record babies crying in movie theaters and on airplanes because that is pretty much on par with that crap.

Did they do something to personally offend you? You sure hold a lot of anger against a bunch of people whom you've never met...

I must double post and tell you this story too.

My daughter was just in San Fran visiting some friends down there before Christmas. Friend says to her "hey, wanna go to a show tonight?...it's really cheap ($25) and it's a Canadian band...I don't know them, but my friends say they're good and they're all going". He couldn't remember the name.

So she gets ready and they head to The Fillmore.

And she was floored when The Hip walked out on the stage!

We love them. She called me every song and put her phone in the air for me to hear. And she brought me a very cool shirt. So talk about one of life's unexpected little treats....she'd always wanted to see them (her brother and I both have), so she had her moment. Got some GREAT pics...I'll post a few later (at work now).

I met them... I wanna say around 2000/Music @ Work tour I think...though it could have been Phantom Power and a year or two earlier.

Went to go see them at the Moore Theatre in Seattle (great little venue FWIW). We met them outside after on the way back to their bus. They were all more than cordial but Gord lingered the longest and was the friendliest. I was surprised at how he seemed so reserved, almost shy. Quite the polar opposite to his onstage persona! Super friendly though and chatted and answered questions, seemed quite down to earth.
