"In View," World Container
"My sister and I were young teens when World Container was released, and our music taste was starting to shift away from 'whatever our parents were listening to' toward stuff that was more likely to create tension on long drives out of the city. Still, we could put The Hip on in the car and everyone would be alright with that, at least for a while.
When 'In View' would come on (track 3, after 'Lonely End of the Rink'), everyone was ready to sing along with Gord, trying to match his vocal runs while staring out the window at the Southern Ontario landscape, or smiling at each other. We still play that album in the car when we drive places as a family, and we still sing along out loud.
It's been about ten years that we've been doing this together, and tons of things have changed since we first bought the CD. Where we're going is different, Ontario is different, and so are we, but when we hit the line, 'I lose, things change, but never in your eyes', it is exactly the right amount of nostalgia."
