The Hockey Song = Canadian Anthem

March 7, 2013

Stompin Tom

Feb 9, 1936 – Mar 6, 2013

On March 6th, 2013, Canadians, hockey and music fans lost a legend.  Stompin’ Tom Connors passed on. But his music and passion for Canada will live on.

The Hockey Song has played in arenas all over the world. It will continue to be played in bars and rinks far and wide, bringing the excitement of hockey to every person that hears it.

The reason people love music is because it resonates with them. It reminds them of all the emotions that we experience in our lives. Music makes us FEEL.

The Hockey Song is simple but descriptive. It reminds me of the things that I love about hockey. It evokes the sound of skates on ice, the odd-man rush, the flashy deke and the game-winning goal. But most of all, The Hockey Song reminds me of the thing I shared with Stompin’ Tom – a passionate love for my country. It reminds me of Canada. Because hockey epitomizes Canada to me.

RIP Stompin’ Tom.
