I've Been Everywhere
I'm digging City and Colour's "Comin' Home". It's totally mellow and full of shout outs to varous North American locales. There's a call out to Saskatoon, Sydney and Halifax, but no love for Toronto. That got me thinking about popular songs that do that shout out thing and include Toronto in the mix. That led me to the Man in Black.
Johnny Cash's "I've Been Everywhere" runs down the names of about a hundred cities and might be the best example of a city shout out song. In "I've Been Everywhere", Toronto is named an impressive sixth overall. Now that's respect.
At least The Tragically Hip released a song called "Toronto #4", wrote about Bashin' Bill Barilko and dropped our name in "Bobcaygeon". That, and Cash's call out, makes up for Dallas Green's slight. He's a good St. Catharines boy after all and we forgive him.
