    1. I thought Bobby Vinton had done it, but I couldn’t find a video on YouTube. A bunch of other guys did it, including Bobby Darin, Vic Dana, Paul Anka, and Dean Martin, but not Bobby Vinton (who would do a killer job, I think).

    1. Well, I have to give it to your song challenge and glad Paul Anka, a Canadian, is in your American Song. Stars and Stripes is an excellent song and loved Arthur Fiedler’s version. The last song fits the bill to a T. I give a great Canadian song to Gordon Lightfoot’s “Canadian Railroad Trilogy”. I just have to give the “O, Canada” anthem as the patriotic song and for the last one, …I can’t think of one that is Canadian..I feel so unpatriotic

      1. You only have red and white in your flag (in days of old the Union Jack was prominent in the upper left-hand corner), so if you can’t get blue in there I guess we can give you that one.

        I love Fiedler’s “Stars and Stripes Forever” and wish there was a video of him conducting it. They say that after he died and John Williams took over for him, in his first concert he walked off the stage and the orchestra played it without a conductor. Still breaks me up to think about it.
