元:Best 80s Hits from Canada


I was a DJ in the 80s (see 80s hair -> right), mostly during college. College dances, a thousand people, trying to get them to dance. (I also started a band in the same period). The Canadian charts during the 80s were different than the US charts. Here are some of my favorites:

Best Canadian 80s Songs You Probably Never Heard of

My #1 favorite 80s Song from Canada. A Canadian band named after a small Canadian town. Not only is this a chart topper, but I dare you. Listen to it 10 times in a row and see if it doesn't foreverafter rule your POD!

Chilliwack - Wanna Be a Star - My Girl Chilliwack - My Girl


Harlequin - Innocence (1980) - Chart Topper Extraordinaire. Big radio hit.

Idle Eyes - Two Rivers - a better ballad you have never heard. Great lyrics.

Really enjoyed your retrospective of 80's Canadian hits - I lived near the border in northern New York during that time and loved to listen to stations like CHOM, CHEZ, etc. Thanks for the post! :)
