The core members of The Tragically Hip have been making music together since 1986. Recently, the Canadian band announced a farewell tour due to lead singer Gord Downie's health. We were lucky enough to see them during one of their 3 nights in Toronto. Today they will play their final concert in their hometown of Kingston, Ontario. We started off trying to compile a top ten Hip song list, but could not do it. We finally managed to narrow down the list of songs that follows to include just twenty of our all time favourites.
