"Something to Sing About" is a patriotic song written by folk singer Oscar Brand that sings the praises of the many different regions of Canada. It was used as a theme for Brand's television show Let's Sing Out, which aired on CBC and CTV in the 1960s and was also the theme song for the Candian pavilion at Expo 67.[1] There was once a movement for it to chosen as Canada's national anthem in 1965 though Parliament ultimately picked O Canada.

Brand has for some years used an Americanized lyric of "Something to Sing About" as a theme song for his Folksong Festival radio program on WNYC in New York City.

It has been recorded by, among others, The Raftsmen.
