When you wake up this morning, let this be the first thing you watch and enjoy learning a bit more about Gord Downie and the type of person he was. Rick Mercer, another Canadian treasure shares a story about a song titled “The Dire Wolf” off their eighth full length album In Violet Light, released in 2002. The music video for “It’s a Good Life, If You Don’t Weaken” was filmed in Oshawa, Ontario, at Parkwood Estate. The light-hearted music video for “The Darkest One” featured Don Cherry and the Trailer Park Boys. (RIP Mr Lahey)
Thank you Rick Mercer for sharing this with us and we are sure going to miss RMR on CBC.
Here are a few comments from the RMR Facebook page worth mentioning while we remember Gord Downie…
Here is some great footage of The Hip singing Dire Wolf in Toronto on August 12, 2016.
