Toss up between the immensely fun Fall Fair by Godfrey Ridout and the entire Lord of the Rings Triliogy score by Howard Shore.
Snake Fence Country, by Howard Cable

How can you choose just ONE Tragically Hip song? But if I had to, it would be 2000 Juno award winner "Bobcaygeon"

I'm not going to go high culture: the Bobby Gimby Canada song. A great song for a great year (1967, for the young 'uns).

I first played Godfrey Ridout’s Fall Fair decades ago and it has never left my head. I’ve played it a few times since but always the original orchestral version. Pleased to see now that the CMC has a concert band arrangement, we have to play it!

For pop tunes: Where Have All the Good People Gone? by Sam Roberts or One Week by BNL.
For band: I'm going to agree with Julian and Snake Fence Country (even though it is a very "American" sounding song).

Okay...I might be showing my age with this one. But Gordon Lightfoot has two songs that I cannot decide between. "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" and "If You Can Read My Mind "
