Upon hearing that CBC was doing a special documentary on 90’s music, I immediately had a thought:  Was it that long ago?  Do we really need a retrospective already?

Well it turns out that the 90’s were that long ago, because CBC has gathered a huge amount of  talent to commiserate the decade that saw so many Canadian musicians garner fame and success around the world.

The doc is entitled Life Is A Highway (good luck trying to get that out of your head now!) and will air on Thursday, September 15, 2011 8:00 PM on CBC. No surprise, Jian Ghomeshi will be narrating.

The special will feature behind the scenes  stories about Tom Cochrane, Sloan, Loreena McKennitt, The Tragically Hip, Shania Twain, Blue Rodeo, Céline Dion, Moxy Früvous,  Barenaked Ladies, Great Big Sea, Jann Arden and whole lot more.  Sadly there’s no mention of The Moffats.

There’s a pretty great trailer for the documentary on the CBC site, you can click here to check it out.

I think it’s going to be fun to go down memory lane, so I’ll definitely be watching.

Who was your favourite musician from the 90’s?
