Something to Sing About

"Something to Sing About" is a patriotic song written by folk singer Oscar Brand that sings the praises of the many different regions of Canada. It was used as a theme for CBC, CTV and Expo 67, and there was once a movement for it to chosen as Canada's national anthem in 1965 though Parliament ultimately picked O Canada.

Brand has for some years used an Americanized lyric of "Something to Sing About" as a theme song for his Folksong Festival radio program on WNYC in New York City.

It has been recorded by, among others, The Raftsmen.
