Courage (For Hugh MacLennan)

It’s TUNEBACK TUESDAY! The first thing I read this morning was the incredibly sad news of The Tragically Hip’s Gord Downie having terminal brain cancer. The Hip has been a large part of my life as my Dad has been the lead singer of a popular Hip cover band since 1994. Today I’m tuning it back to “Courage” for Gord Downie.

ORIGINAL RELEASE DATE: 1993

TRIVIA: The song’s bracketed title references the late author Hugh MacLennan, particularly his 1959 novel The Watch That Ends the Night which is paraphrased in the song’s lyrics.

See you next Tuesday!
