At Last: A Rock Song About Toronto

There are tons of songs about New York, Chicago, Memphis, San Francisco, Phoenix, LA, Nashville, St. Louis, Kansas City, London, Paris and Berlin.  There’s even a song about Winnipeg (“One Great City” by the Weakerthans.)  But is there any kind of wrock song about Toronto?  No.

Daylight for Deadeyes decided to fix that.  And yeah, the song does sound like it’s looking for a spot at the ACC during Leaf games…

    Starts out trying to sound like the Baba O'Reilly from the who and then becomes a commercial for the city. I couldn't picture wanting to listen to it at home, but could tolerate a smattering of it in a commercial.

    You've never heard of 'The Toronto Song' by the Arrogant Worms (otherwise known as Three Dead Trolls in a Baggie)?
