Music Monday – “And then we’ll be married/Then we’ll be man and wife/No dress rehearsal/This is our life.”

Have I posted this before?  I feel like I have but I spent some time this weekend importing old Tragically Hip bootlegs into iTunes and it reminded me of how fully and completely (get it?) I used to be into the Hip – trading bootlegs, traveling around to attend different concerts, studying Gord’s lyrics like they contained some secret code to the universe.

I always loved how their mid-song jams would lead to future songs.  In this case, an extremely risque ramble in the middle of “New Orleans Is Sinking” would later give birth to the very romantic “Ahead by A Century”.
