BLUE RODEO, "Stealin' All My Dreams," 2015

Posted on October 1, 2015

Line by line, Blue Rodeo skewers the present Canadian government in what they are calling a “modern day protest song.” In “Stealin’ All My Dreams,” co-vocalist Greg Keelor calls out Prime Minister Harper for his position on everything from the oil pipeline to national security.  The accompanying video and web page actually lists a staggering number of “stealin’ all my dreams facts” corroborated with links to news stories.  “Blue Rodeo does not always speak with one voice,” says co-vocalist Jim Cuddy. “However, we feel collectively that the current administration in Canada has taken us down the wrong path.” Download the song for free here.  And vote on Oct. 19 — Karen Bliss
