K'naan - Wavin' Flag
I didn't like this song for the longest time, and then I heard my son singing it. I then spun it again with an open mind, and suddenly I liked it.

This isn't the first time I disliked a slice of Cancon until it grew on me. The same thing happened with Bedouin Soundclash.

I've had the same reaction to this song. It's not the kind of song I'd typically like, but it's grown on me.

I think those Radio 2 ads have sort of won me over.

Toronto Mike Verified as the defacto Toronto Mike

I think that's why I didn't like it for so long. It's kind of cheesy.

But then it grew on me.

I hated it for a while... and now I really like it... it's a good thing too, as I'll be watching a LOT of the World Cup this year, and I think it's the official song of the World Cup.
