Video of the Day, Canadian Music Week Edition: Sarah Polley’s Version of “Courage”

Share this post

If you were to ask someone in the 90s, “Who is the biggest rock band in Canada?”, the answer would almost certainly be: The Tragically Hip.  As with any big band, their influence spread its wings and its progeny landed in places it might never have imagined.  One of those landing places was in the brain of Canadian actress / director, Sarah Polley, who offered up a  stunningly solemn version of their hit song, “Courage”, on the soundtrack of the Atom Egoyan film, “The Sweet Hereafter.”

Behrnsie has a love for music that dare not speak its name. He attends many shows and can often be found counting out the beats for no discernible reason. He played alto saxophone in his middle school jazz band, where he was best known for infuriating his instructor when it was revealed that he played everything by ear, and could not in fact read music. He takes great pride that this is the same talent/affliction that got Tori Amos kicked out of the Peabody Academy. He does not live in his parents’ basement….except during the holidays.
