Canadiana: Bachman-Turner Overdrive BTO

Bachman-Turner Overdrive played music for the generation that preceded mine.

It doesn't mean I can't enjoy them, but I suspect their music is more meaningful to that generation than to me or mine. I still crank up the volume when I hear them on the radio though.

"House of the Rising Sun" was originally by the Animals, and their version was much better than BTO's.

Yes, I like the original version best. Several bands have covered this song, it's a classic.

Great memories Aaron, thanks. BTO was in my time. Through i was a punky middle schooler at the time. Definitely some of the best driving music from that era!

Agreed, great band. My music starts about 1979, so BTO is a couple of years before.
