Song #60 On My MP3 Player - Courage (For Hugh MacLennan) by The Tragically Hip

I have decided to share with the Lost Soul faithful every song that is stored on my MP3 player which is a Philips GoGear Vibe 4G model. All posts are in alphabetical order. Song #60 on my MP3 player is 'Courage (For Hugh MacLennan)' by The Tragically Hip which is the opening track on their 1992 album Fully Completely.

The Tragically Hip were a band I knew by name only during the 1990's because the music 'zines I would read would have advertisements for Tragically Hip shows in cities like Detroit. 'Courage (For Hugh MacLennan)' was my first Tragically Hip song, and it was used during a great movie called The Sweet Hereafter. I decided to find that song and purchased Fully Completely on CD, and this is one of a few tracks from that album on my MP3 player. Now you might be wondering who Hugh MacLennan is, and the answer is that he was the author of a book titled The Watch That Ends the Night.  'Courage (For Hugh MacLennan)' was inspired by The Watch That Ends the Night and apparently the lyrics reference the book. Enjoy!
