I just post songs I fancy, usually after I'm reminded of them when they play on my Spotify playlist. Or I'll post something new I have just heard. I have no bias towards Canadian material, but as has been pointed out, I have a fondness for 1980s music generally, and 1980s Canadian music in particular. Part of it is probably my nostalgia for my childhood. I didn't listen to pop music much as a child (my parents often had classical music going in the house, which thankfully gave me an appreciation for it), but many of these songs formed the background of our lives as Canadians.
I didn't become aware of Strange Advance until early in the '00s, and they became, and remain, my favourite band.
I like your Saga selections, Coral, but I don't think Saga compares to S.A. But prog-rock and synth-pop are like apples and oranges.
Here's "I'll be the One to Cry", one of the better cuts off their second album, 2Wo, which I find marginally the least-great of their three amazing platters, but which contained their biggest hit, "We Run":

"Ludlow Expectations", Butch Walker's most Springsteenesque song:

Have had this stuck in my head since seeing Bingham in concert the other night.

Re: Post a song you like or love.

I imagine Chris de Burgh's music is considered wimp-rock by the music cognoscenti, but I don't give a damn. I like quite a few of his songs. Here's a really good one called "Timing is Everything":

Re: Post a song you like or love.

I really dig this song, "Summer's End", by folk-rocker Tret Fure. A good deal of her repertoire is excellent, but she is regrettably little-known.

Re: Post a song you like or love.

^ Several years ago I got a call at work from someone named Jim Carroll. When I returned the call and talked to him, I said something like "So, your name is 'Jim Carroll'?", he exasperatedly replied "Yes, and I didn't write any basketball diaries, and I don't know that many people who died"

I obviously was not the first person to poke fun at his name.

A really interesting take on black metal, and this video is completely bad-ass.
