Something to Sing About
"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. 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.
