Day 10

“A song by your favourite band.” is Day 10’s challenge.

Now this is really challenging. I don’t have a favourite band. It’s rare I listen to one genre of music for longer than 2 songs, listening to one band for the length of a CD hasn’t happened since I was in high school (and a big Garth Brooks fan).

I’m stumped. OK, I have an idea. I’ll narrow it down to bands I have seen live in concert. Let’s see, that would be The Crash Test Dummies, Garth Brooks, April Wine, The Rankin Family, The Wiggles and Rascal Flatts.

Now, The Wiggles do put on a good show but I’m disinclined to include them in my music list. I think I’ll choose something of the Rankins. I saw that concert with my mom. They put on one heck of a show. It was hard to stay in our seats, but since we were in the balcony we opted to remain seated. There was a lot of toe tapping though.

Here’s the one we tapped to the most – Mull River Shuffle by The Rankin Family. Makes me wish I’d been raised out East.

      The Rankin Family are a band from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. They consisted of 2 brothers and 3 sisters. One of the brothers and one of the sisters have since passed away.
      They put on a great show. So lively. All the girls did Irish step dancing, or at least the East Coast version of it. Just phenomenal.
      mmmm, The Wiggles. I asked the kids and we picked this one: Old Man Emu from Wiggly Safari

  3. I never heard of them before. They sound pretty wacky.
