I've decided on a national final to determine our entry to WV 120 in Norway, and the Canadian Broadcast Consortium has picked Scottish-Canadian singer and songwriter Gowan to be our representative! He was at his peak in the 80s and early 90s, and is the current lead singer of the group Styx.

Below are 5 of his best-known Canadian hits, some you might have seen from past national finals. Have a listen to each one, and help pick which one you want to see next edition!

Song 1: Strange Animal

Song 2: Moonlight Desires

Song 3: Cosmetics

Song 4: A Criminal Mind

Song 5: All The Lovers in the World

Scoring:

:12::10::8::6::4:

I have decided to take a break for WV 123. It's not just because of three consecutive frustrating DNQs, but because I feel it's necessary. Coupled with not being able to go anywhere (except to the corner store to get my mom's lottery tickets) or do anything for the past 3 weeks since my workplace shut down, I'm just tired.

Hopefully this gives me a chance to recharge my batteries and think of more songs from Canada that I can share with you. It's worked before, it just might work again.

See you in WV 124

We'll miss you @esc87fan but sometimes you've just gotta (as you put it) recharge your batteries, and it usually works. I think I get how you're feeling as well. This lockdown has got me weirdly exhausted too and we're not even doing anything. It's strange. Tired from doing nothing at all basically. The mental aspect of the horrible situation we're going through right now probably adds to it.

Anyway, enjoy your break! And I'm sorry Joni didn't work out for you again. She's one of Canada's finest. Even if she's been unlucky here, plenty of your artists have been big successes like your lucky charm, Loreena McKennitt xheat

Time to play a little guessing game! I will give you 3 clues as to what Team Canada has in store for its return in WV 124. If you think you know what it is, just like the post.

All right, here we go... put your thinking caps on!

Clue #1: The artist is someone I've sent before
Clue #2: The song title is the name of a city
Clue #3: It was nominated for an Academy Award
