Hipeponymous

The HipBack in April I wrote about the poll being conducted by The Tragically Hip in celebration of their twentieth anniversary. We were asked to list our ten favourite Hip tunes so I did. Here's what I wrote that day, in alphabetical order.

  • Ahead By A Century
  • At The Hundredth Meridian
  • Blow At High Dough
  • Bobcaygeon
  • Courage
  • Grace, Too
  • It's A Good Life If You Don't Weaken
  • Little Bones
  • New Orleans Is Sinking
  • Wheat Kings

On November 1st, the Hip have announced they're releasing "Hipeponymous", a limited edition box set consisting of two discs with 34 songs chosen by fans. The four disc package will also contain two brand new songs, a 48 page book, a live DVD called "That Night In Toronto", and a bonus DVD of all 23 Hip videos, plus 11 new video pieces. You don't have to buy the box set though because the two disc package, which they're calling "Yer Favourites", and the "That Night In Toronto" DVD will also be sold separately.

Remember when I complained about how bright it was during the November 2004 show at the ACC? It turns out those lights were there because they filmed "That Night In Toronto" that night. It was shot in High Definition and mixed in PCM Stereo and 5.1 Surround Sound and should be great.

Hip fans voting for their top ten chose the following songs, listed here in alphabetical order. 8/10 appeared on my list as well.

  • Ahead By A Century
  • Blow At High Dough
  • Bobcaygeon
  • Courage
  • Grace, Too
  • Little Bones
  • Nautical Disaster
  • New Orleans Is Sinking
  • 38 Years Old
  • Wheat Kings
