Canucks offering songs for Obama’s iPod THE CANADIAN PRESS

CBC49-bannerBarack Obama needs some Canadian content for his iPod.

So says CBC Radio 2, which is inviting Canadians to select songs that best define Canada for the incoming U. S. leader, known to be an avid music fan.

A CBC website already includes submissions from rapper Maestro Fresh Wes, who suggests his own 1989 hit, “Let Your Backbone Slide.”

Meanwhile, movie critic Richard Crouse says BTO’s “Takin’ Care of Business” would offer inspiration.

The survey officially kicks off next Monday, when Canadians have a week to submit their choices by email, phone or online.

CBC Radio 2 will reveal a shortlist of 100 songs for public voting the following week, and reveal the top 49 songs on inauguration day Jan. 20.
