»  Neil Young - Only Love Can Break Your Heart
»  Hayden - Skates
During the long drive home from camping last week, I had my iPod on shuffle.  At one point, Neil Young's "Only Love Can Break Your Heart" came on, immediately followed by Hayden's "Skates".  The combination struck me as ideal.

Both songs are from great Canadian folk-rockers who aren't afraid of the harmonica and both songs are about heartbreak.  "Skates", in particular, never fails to get me with that "I will skate as far as it takes, to bring her back home" line.  If you've never heard "Skates" before, you're in for a treat.

It's 2-for-1 Thursday.  Get 'em while they're hot.
