Bad Timing

A heartbreakingly lyrical and unflinchingly candid portrayal of a relationship that got derailed by uncontainable circumstances, veteran alt-country rockers Blue Rodeo's "Bad Timing" remains one of the most cherished gems in their shamefully unappreciated back catalogue. This achingly beautiful country ballad easily ranks as one fo the great heartbreak paeans of our time, and effortlessly displays why Jim Cuddy, Greg Keelor and their mates are one of Canada's most beloved musical institutions. Check out the elliptical, anecdotal video clip, which successfully conveys the song's central message of lost chances and perpetual regret.
