This week’s Rockin’ Friday tune is “If I had $1000000” by Barenaked Ladies. Those six zeroes indicate a million dollars and are how the band curiously chose to spell the title. That would have been my 3rd choice, but what do I know?
It’s a great song featuring a kid friendly “call-and-repeat” which little ones can easily participate in singing. The song is about what a Dude would do for his beloved if he possessed that much cash. The singer is obviously a kind soul, as he’d not only buy her a house but also furniture for her house so she wouldn’t have to sit on the floor. His generosity is not surprising, because he’s Canadian and they are usually pretty cool.

This song has been a concert favorite for BNL for many years and there is always some good improvisation when they perform it live. A perfect example is the Macaroni Dance/Explosion that singer Stephen Page does halfway through the version in the video below.
