From the Inside Flap
A book that gets to the heart of the matter! Whether you're a professional musician or an air guitarist, a collector or a true amateur, this book will shake things up! Cover art, memorable insider stories from the musicians themselves, celebrity sidebars, documentary photographs, and much, much more make this book an unforgettable addition to any Canadian music-lover's library.
The Top 100 Canadian Singles will undoubtedly stir the souls, ears, and tongues of music lovers everywhere. For this massive undertaking, Bob Mersereau assembled a blue-ribbon panel of musicians, broadcasters, reviewers, managers, promoters, record-label executives, retailers, and collectors who cast their votes in a major, nationwide poll. John Roberts, Canada's original VJ; Joel Plaskett; Sarah Slean; the late Paul Quarrington; CBC's Stuart McLean; Sam Roberts; Sophie Durocher; and Eric Trudel all contributed lists — along with hundreds more.
The results of Mersereau's poll span many decades and genres, with more than a few surprises. Like The Top 100 Canadian Albums, this new volume is destined to spark debate about Canadian music.
