Les Colocs – La Traversee

Okay, this post is too obscure, admittedly. Brian Topp ran for leader of Canada’s present official opposition party, the federal New Democratic Party. He told the Hill Times newspaper that his unofficial campaign theme song is this one from 1993. The group, from Montreal, Quebec, just like Topp, sings Quebecois songs, heavy on brass in the arrangements. Themes of their tunes include singing about social issues and poverty, which fits for the NDP, Canada’s party of the left wing. Topp, however, did not win the leadership contest.
