Some of the best modern poets are songwriters. One of my favourites is the Newfoundland group Great Big Sea. I like their philosophy, and how they express it in their music. I shan’t recapitulate it here, that would be silly, but here are the three songs that sum it up for me.

Walk on the Moon:

The Company of Fools:

Straight to Hell (in Cleveland)

There’s a lot of wisdom in there.


  1. I was always a fan of The Old Black Rum by them.

  2. I’ve been listening to GBS for years (along with several other Canadian bands that I consider to be in a similar vein). Great stuff.
