What about Jolly Tamborine Man? Or the theme to "Toronto Rocks"?

Dude,

This thing needs "Spadina Bus" by the Shuffle Demons!

Cool to see TO on BB.

"She makes me go to school!"

There used to be a tacky, boosterish novelty song, a la 'Ontariariario' that went: 'Yonge Street/Toronto's fun street...'

Wow, I thought I was the only one in the world who remembered the "Queen Haters" skit!

I've been trying to rescue some ancient VHS tapes lately, and I was horrified to find that the tape that contained "We Hate the Bloody Queen" is unplayable...

I beg to differ.

No "Spadina Bus"? Wtf kind of list is that?

And also... Toronto is only a geek capital if you forget about the West coast. Funny, when the net was taking off back in the early 90's something like 2/3 of the office space in TO was *vacant*. I think of Toronto more as an urban redneck kind of city. I've never heard the geek thing before - but I guess that's cool now - er kewl.

Rough Trade was a good pick though.
