Top Artist: Feist
What Sarah says: Years ago, when my daughter was about 3, she loved the video for Mushaboom so much that I made her flying toast from felt for her birthday (watch the video, you’ll understand). When I listen to Feist, I feel nostalgic for those early years of motherhood, and for the early 2000 Toronto music scene. I suppose there is at least one Feist song on every playlist. She’s on mine because her music serves many purposes for me – dancing, singing along, concentrating, comfort, feeling sad, feeling happy, and introducing myself to new people.
Top Song: The Bleeding Heart Show by the New Pornographers
What Sarah says: The New Pornographers has been one of my favourite bands for over 20 years, and this is one of my favourite songs of theirs. I love the harmonies, and the beat, and the driving melody.
