As we prepare to fire up the DeLorean and head back in time for another Feel Good 80's Weekend, I want to take a moment to give a shout out to our neighbors to the north for their contributions to pop music during the decade of decadence.

I realize that Canada has produced a whole bunch of really talented musicians that span many, many years, and many different genres of music. You could easily compile several different lists about artists and bands from the Great White North - from Neil Young to Alanis Morissette, from Paul Anka to Justin Bieber, and a bunch in between. This list, however, is just for musicians that we know and love for the songs (or maybe just one song) they put out in the 1980's. Some are obvious, some will come as a surprise.
