The Tragically Hip’s ‘Bobcaygeon’ Voted Greatest Canadian Song of All-Time

Indie88 readers and listeners have spoken

We asked our readers and listeners to pick the greatest Canadian song of all-time. After a week of voting and endless debates, the results are in.

With the lyrics “That night in Toronto…” a legendary song was born. One of the best, most sing-along worthy tracks off The Hip’s incredible 1998 record Phantom Power. Another example of the perfect mix of artistry, narrative, and folksy warmth from Canada’s favourite band.

Indie88 fans voted the Hip’s “Bobcaygeon” the greatest Canadian cut of all-time, with Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” and Rush’s “The Spirit of Radio” finishing second and third, respectively. Listen to “Bobcaygeon,” your greatest Canadian song of all-time below.
