Song of the day: Go Betsy – "Boy From Canada"

February 27, 2012

I know exactly two things about today’s song, and I’ll let you know what they are after you play it:

Go Betsy – “Boy From Canada” (2004)


1. That song appears on a Popboomerang Records (Hi, Scotty!) compilation called Shake Yer Popboomerang 2.

2. There’s another version of that song. It’s by Jane Vs World and I played it here in June last year. If you don’t want to read that earlier post (or you may be reluctant to click on that link for some reason), you can hear the song here:

Jane Vs World – “Boy From Canada” (2006)


And that’s it.

My guess is that Go Betsy morphed into Jane Vs World and someone decided to use “Boy From Canada” again. (Why waste a cute song?) I like a band that recycles.
