Oh Quebec girl go with me, Oh my belle, my fleur de lis, where the lost river winds in the shadow of the pines?

Ah, merci Martin, Quebec, where I was born and raised..
I'll start with a song from my childhood, I was 7 years old in 1967, and spent a good part of that summer, Canada's centennial, at Montreal's world fair, Expo 67. This was the theme song, sung by a popular Quebec singer of the time, Donald Lautrec.

I like the YouTube video, with images of Expo 67 (the uploader, also included a cover version of "Canada", which was our centennial theme song.
Gino Vanelli, gave a shout-out to his hometown on "I Just Wanna Stop" .."When I think of those summer nights in Montreal.."
Gordon Lightfoot's "Canadian Railroad Trilogy", refers to the Rockies and the Prairies, but mentions only one specific area, Quebec's 'Gaspé'.
..and going back to 1928. "Hello Montreal" - Waring's Pennsylvanians
à bientôt :)
