>Let’s all take a moment to mourn my couch.

Moment done.
Despite my best efforts, the best couch in Canada didn’t make it to the semi-finals of the Great Canadian Song Quest. Instead it lost out to fellow Alberta locations: Banff, Calgary, Drumheller Edmonton and Hoodoos/Badlands. I shudder to think what a song about Edmonton would song like. All of the nominees from each of the provinces are now posted on the CBC Radio 2 website and you can vote your favorites.

You can also vote who is going to write and perform the songs. Some of my favourite nominated singers include: Martha Wainright, Jimmy Rankin, Joel Plaskett, Hey Rosetta!, Hawksley Workman and New Brunswick’s David Myles.

You can vote for the Great Canadian Song Quest Shortlist from now until October 23rd! Click here to cast your vote!
Okay fine, let’s have another moment for my couch.
