    My fave is "Canada Is" by Roger Whittaker. When I was teaching elementary school, I always taught it to my students.

    This song is great, explains the symbols on coins -

    On the more heartfelt side, this song about respecting our veterans brings tears to my eyes -

    Wow this sucks, I've never heard Canada Is can you believe it? Guess it's one of those "banned" songs here in Quebec.

    Patty, i never heard of any song "banned" in Qc

    i'd like to know ?.....well the OH Canada, is not a very welcome song here...
    though we sang it each Fryday afternoon with the "Salut au drapeau" when i was in elementary school ....( i think it's a hint on my age here, lol )

    i remember all the words for the "Salut au drapeau"

    i'm pretty sure they no longer do this at school

    I mean "socially banned", not by law.

    I don't even think my son knows the words to O Canada. They are definately not singing anymore here. LOL

    Salut au Drapeau must have been the french equivalent of "I pledge Allegiance to the flag" we did that too. I guess we are a couple of oldies but goodies, Mia.

    Patty, I don't remember when/where I learned "Canada Is", but from taking French at school from Grades 7-12, we learned lots of Roger Whittaker's French songs - (I still sing some in the shower!) - Une Rose Pour Isabelle, Le Dernier Adieu, Ballade De L'Amour, Isabelle Et Caroline, and Un Elephant Sur Mon Balcon... I guess it was their attempt to have us learn more modern songs than the 'kiddie' songs our pathetic levels of French were only capable of!

    first i must apologize to those who don't read french

    for those who do .....hope you enjoy

    here it is one of what i would call the best french song and i think this song should be teach in French course....for both Anglophones and Francophones

    LA LANGUE DE CHEZ NOUS (à Félix)
    paroles et musique: Yves Duteil

    C'est une langue belle avec des mots superbes
    Qui porte son histoire à travers ses accents
    Où l'on sent la musique et le parfum des herbes
    Le fromage de chèvre et le pain de froment

    Et du Mont St-Michel jusqu'à la Contrescarpe
    En écoutant parler les gens de ce pays
    On dirait que le vent s'est pris dans une harpe
    Et qu'il en a gardé toutes les harmonies

    Dans cette langue belle aux couleurs de Provence
    Où la saveur des choses est déjà dans les mots
    C'est d'abord en parlant que la fête commence
    Et l'on boit des paroles aussi bien que de l'eau

    Les voix ressemblent aux cours des fleuves et des rivières
    Elles répondent aux méandres, au vent dans les roseaux,
    Parfois même aux torrents qui charrient du tonnerre
    En polissant les pierres sur le bord des ruisseaux

    C'est une langue belle à l'autre bout du monde
    Une bulle de France au nord d'un continent
    Sertie dans un étau mais pourtant si féconde
    Enfermée dans les glaces au sommet d'un volcan

    Elle a jeté des ponts par-dessus l'Atlantique
    Elle a quitté son nid pour un autre terroir
    Et comme une hirondelle au printemps des musiques
    Elle revient nous chanter ses peines et ses espoirs

    Nous dire que là-bas dans ce pays de neige
    Elle a fait face aux vents qui soufflent de partout
    Pour imposer ses mots jusque dans les collèges
    Et qu'on y parle encore la langue de chez nous

    C'est une langue belle à qui sait la défendre
    Elle offre des trésors de richesse infinie
    Les mots qui nous manquaient pour pouvoir nous comprendre
    Et la force qu'il faut pour vivre en harmonie

    Et de l'Île d'Orléans jusqu'à la Contrescarpe
    En écoutant chanter les gens de ce pays
    On dirait que le vent s'est pris dans une harpe
    Et qu'il a composé toute une symphonie

    Et de l'Île d'Orléans jusqu'à la Contrescarpe
    En écoutant chanter les gens de ce pays
    On dirait que le vent s'est pris dans une harpe
    Et qu'il a composé toute une symphonie

    Aside from Justin Hines & Alex J. Robinson's, "There's No Place Like This" Ontario jingles, I like Sloan's "The Rest of My Life"
