#11: A Song From Your Favourite Band, by j


When I read this I could not think of my favourite band.  For some good reason, it turns out I don’t listen to bands a whole lot.  I’m more of a solo artist kind of person. And I took the “Song From Your Favourite Band” seriously.  Band = 2 or more folks making music.

So, when I couldn’t think of a currently band that I’m enamored with.  So I decided to take a trip down memory lane to high school.  And when I was in high school I was a HUGE Barenaked Ladies fan.  I had all their albums and their music made me smile.

When I was a teen I even subjected myself to be a guinea pig for a psychological study to make money for concert tickets (FYI: the concert was a Pine Knob and it was fantastical).

I stopped listening to them consistently after their Maroon album hit (they went mainstream…).  And subsequent albums were…ok.

And then that crazy shit happened when Steven Page left his family and started doing drugs in the US.

Before that, however they were my favourite.  And one of my faves was a Bruce Cockburn cover:

About weywardsisters

The Three Weyward Sisters first appeared in Shakespeare’s “Macbeth”. It turns out we have more in common with these “weird” sisters than we thought. In the Shakespeare play the sisters represent darkness, chaos and conflict. We’ll leave it up to you to decide which of us represents each. They also usually show up to mark impending doom. Well, we certainly hope that our presence on this little corner of the Interwebs doesn’t mean impending doom for anyone. However, we find our commonalities with the witches in other ways. To be weyward means to be willful, disobedient and to turn away from what is “right or proper”. Those who know us would whole heartedly agree – we are three weyward sisters. We are three headstrong, stubborn (some more than others), obstinate and willful sisters. Read at your own risk.
