  1. I think Laugh Laugh doesn’t fit, and I nominate Universal Soldier as a replacement, but not the Donovan version but the Buddy St. Marie version, although, I think I could argue that either would do;). Laugh Laugh was by the Beau Brummell from San Francisco. All the other artists…..

    • Hey Bill!
      Yes you nailed it! However I’m curious How can you argue that Donovan’s version would qualify?
      I don’t believe he’s Canadian…
      Can you ‘Splain?

  2. 1 all recorded by either Canadian acts or feature Canadians in the band
    2 wrong laugh laugh – Beau brummells
    3 joni Mitchell/ Gordon Lightfoot/ beau brummells / Buffalo Springfield/ Paul anka/ guess who/Leonard Cohen/ the band.
