Saturday Music Post - Worthwhile Canadian Music

The Canadian folk and folk-rock duo Ian & Sylvia began performing together in New York in 1961. They married in 1964 and broke up -- musically and maritally -- in 1975 (with at least one later reunion concert). Their most famous song, written by Ian, was "Four Strong Winds," which has been covered many times. In 2005, CBC listeners vote "Four Strong Winds" the greatest Canadian song of all time. 

Sylvia also wrote the much-covered song, "You Were on My Mind." 

The clips are at The Faculty Lounge.

[For those who did not get the reference in the post's title -- intended absolutely ironically, I assure you -- see here.]
