The Definitive 1000

We are going to be counting down the Definitive 1000 things. Why are they Definitive? Because The Friendly Friends have deemed them as such.

967 - Kathleen Edwards

I love Kathleen Edwards. From the first time I heard "Six O'Clock News" on.

But why the sudden outpouring of love in the form of Enshrinement in the Much-Ballyhooed List of the 1000 Definitive Things?

I finally saw the video for "I Make the Dough, You Get the Glory" from her new album Asking for Flowers.

It's impossible not to love a song that features the following lyrics:

I'm a Ford Tempo you're a Maserati
You're the Great One, I'm Marty McSorley
You're the Concorde, I'm economy

And then you see the video and it only makes the song better. I finally got around to watching the video based on XPN's Michaela Majoun's recommendation. Pay close attention at the 1:09 minute mark.

Press PLAY

Donald Brashear may disagree with it, but this song and video is exactly what Definitive 1000 enshrinees are made of.

[Here's the inside story on the filming of the video which also features Paul Coffey]
