Uncle E's Musical Nightmares. It would be easy to poke a little fun at him for waxing poetic about the country that gave us Bieber and Nickelback (see link above), but I just can't do it. Why? Turns out we have a mutual love for the greatest show to ever hit the airwaves... SCTV. This song is from Bob and Doug McKenzie's 'The Great White North' LP, circa 1981. What a smash! "Take Off" made it all the way to No. 16 on Billboard's singles chart. Geddy Lee has never had a bigger hit. Jokes aside, Uncle E, I thought your post was touching.
