Joey's asked for CanCon (Canadian Content) songs from the 80s and 90s - songs that didn't cross the border.
Cherry Beach Express - Pukka Orchestra
Wave Babies - Honeymoon Suite
L'Affaire Du Moutier/Closer Together - The Box
C'est Zéro - Julie Masse
and Walter Ostanek, of course.
Here are David Akin's suggestions.
