Your Chronicle Editor's Choices for Canuckistani Tunes for Our Newest President

- "Rebellion (Lies)" by the Arcade Fire, because it rocks (sorry Mr. Cohen; you still rule though).

- Bach's "Goldberg Variations" played by the great Canuckistani pianist Glenn Gould, because it's Glenn freaking Gould for God's sake.

- "Quand les hommes vivront d'amour" by Raymond Lévesque, because I know absolutely nothing about French-Canadian music and this one kind of reminds me of actual French singers like Serge Gainsbourg and Jacques Dutronc. Sort of.

- "Departure Bay" by Dianna Krall, because she's married to Elvis Costello.

Vote for your favorites here. The HNIC staff needs your help.

"Suck on my chocolate salty balls" by South Parks Chef. Just to get everyone ready for the impending race war!

Yes. Diana Krall. Elvis is a lucky man.
