Isn't it still in effect?
It seems antiquated in an internet world, but I don't make music for a living; my friend at SOCAN says it's still necessary.

I was slightly acquainted with your friend, don't know if he would remember me.
There were a few funny stories about the MAPL designation, like Bootsauce pretending they recorded their album at a non-existent Canadian studio rather than one in the States so that their Hot Chocolate cover would qualify.

Send me board email, Halfway, I'll let Howard know.
God, Bootsauce--did I ever loathe them. Our own Red Hot Chili Peppers, but (somehow) exponentially worse.

I thought this thread was going to be about songs that sample the sound of cans being popped opened.

I might open the poll up to that interpretation, just so I can vote for Basehead's "Ode to My Favorite Beer."

Also "The Beer Hunter" by Bob and Doug McKenzie fits both definitions.

I think I just stumbled onto the patron saint of this poll: Dave Madden, who played Ruben Kincaid on The Partridge Family. If I ever did I know he was Canadian--born in Sarnia--I'd completely forgotten.

Will get this up and running in a week or two, once they're counting down the country poll. I thought I was finished working for the year, but at the last minute the union bumped my supply-teaching ceiling to 95 days again. Gifted multi-tasker that I am, I'll still go forward; it may mean, when it comes time for the results, that they won't be posted on consecutive days. Should be okay otherwise.

You're going to have to have the results vetted by one of your classes.

Only if we relocate to whatever social-media site they're using now. (I won't even say TikTok, which I assume is yesterday's news.)
I should mention that I'll be invoking the Mel Brooks Rule for the poll, meaning that everyone from all corners of the world is encouraged to participate, but making fun of Canadians or Canada will only be permitted if you're Canadian yourself and can produce, on request, official documentation. Anyone not in compliance will be expelled.
