I Wouldn't Need a Hero If I Wasn't Such a Zero

Since I've had a lot of unexpected free time lately, I was diggin' through the ol' CD library (finding some very interesting and sometimes very scary things by the way) and I found this forgotten little gem to post. It's hard to find a story sadder than that of Elliott Smith(unfortunately known to some as "that Good Will Hunting guy"). He was actually named Steve but he deemed that too "jockish." How rock and roll is that?

Track List:
1. Needle In The Hay
2. Christian Brothers
3. Clementine
4. Southern Belle
5. Single File
6. Coming Up Roses
7. Satellite
8. Alphabet Town
9. St. Ides Heaven
10. Good To Go
11. The White Lady Loves You More
12. The Biggest Lie

Need a Metal Man Just to Pick Up Your Feet

In case you get too depressed, here's the Chronicles of Narnia rap from a recent SNL.

Well It's Good to Know That You'll Be OK

Edit(11.00 A.M) - Looks like Saturday's post of The Age of Electric's Make a Pest a Pet album didn't publish. I'm too lazy to post it again, so email me if you want it.

To round off my all Canadian music week, I leave you with an album that is very special to me. This is the first album that I ever really fell in love with. I was about 12 when I first heard it, a very good friend of mine used to play Superman's Dead on his guitar and have me sing for him. This album showed me that music is more than what's on the radio, and it can be Canadian too. I'll admit, I am disappointed with the new OLP album, but this classic holds a special place in my heart.

Our Lady Peace - Clumsy
Track List:
1. Superman's Dead
2. Automatic Flowers
3. Carnival
4. Big Dumb Rocket
