The Top Ten

Bobcageon is such a uniquely gorgeous song. If you want to hear a song that exemplifies Canada, this would be my choice.
This song is by far my Favorite hip song
A masterpiece... great groove, sweeping, contextually Canadian, but thematically universal.

2Ahead by a Century
This is awesome! This is my favourite Hip song, but I did not think that it was going to be in the top spot. I am very surprised and thrilled.

I can and will never get enough of this song.
This song is so much better than the rest of their songs, it's brilliant just want to keep listening to it.
This song is ahead of its time by a century

4Nautical Disaster
Absolute masterpiece of a song, possibly the best song by a Canadian band ever.
Easily the best Hip song of all time. Utterly Canadian, great lyrics, provoking rock glory.
Sends chills down my spine when I listen to it. Powerful. One of my all time favorite songs.

6New Orleans is Sinking
They warned you WAY ahead of time N'Oleans! Great tune!


This song is the one I heard first while traveling in CA. I have been hooked by the HIP ever since. I love all their material. My favorite band of all time. I live in Seattle so I get to go to Portland, Seattle and CA shows. Vancouver in September is next.

838 Years Old
Deep song, even if you can't relate, it makes you think.
One of their best songs, if not their best. Why it doesn't even crack the top ten is beyond me. "Heard a tap on the window, in the middle of the night. Held back the curtain for, my older brother mike... ", classic Hip.
My favorite all time

9Blow at High Dough
Blow At High Dough, Is one of there best songs ever made. Acually I am kinda sad Because I think there Best song that they ever did was 38 Years old. Then Boots or hearts then blow the high dough, then new orleans is sinking. Then little bones, then three pistols, this song are the best they did it has that classic rock feel, and the newer song they sang are sappy and not like the Album UP TO HERE or Road Apples ot Fully Completly, those were there best years.
My brother, rick, I so miss you... G
