The past 3 weeks, the top 3 songs on the Hot 100 have all been by Canadian -which has never happened before in Hot 100 history. This week, Drake is also in the top ten, with Shawn Mendes climbing 14 to 12. So next week, half the top 10 could be Canadian. Another possible first.

I've linked my name to a Sporcle quiz I created, listing the 150 biggest hits by Canadian acts on the Hot 100 (between 1969, when Cancon regulations began, and 2013, the latest info I have). Give it a try.

One minor correction: The "Hot 100" wasn't called that until 1958. So the first 4 songs were #1 on the Best Seller list, but not the Hot 100.

Rock Golf, I remember you from those grueling Rhino RMAT tests in the late 90's.
