Life is a Highway – Tom Cochrane (1991)
This Canadian singer-songwriter had already experienced a successful, distinguished career as front-man of the band Red Rider when this track thrust his solo career into high gear. While probably considered a one-hit wonder in the US, he remained prolific – and popular – in his native Canada throughout the remainder of the 90’s. He reunited with his band-mates from Red Rider in 2002, and they continue to perform occasionally. Cochrane was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame in 2003 and released his most recent solo album in 2006.
