The Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame (CSHF) is entering the ‘80s and ‘90s. Entering its 25th year, the organization has chosen four songs from a period in Canadian songwriting when new voices and genres were breaking through, both nationally and on the global stage.


All four songs will be inducted on November 1 at Glenn Gould Studio in Toronto as part of the CSHF’s 25th anniversary celebrations.

They are:

Snow and MC Shan’s global sensation Informer.

They join Dream Warriors and Bran Van 3000 for the organization's 25th anniversary celebration, honouring songs from the '80s and '90s. Billboard Canada’s Rosie Long Decter has the story in full here.
