the rembrandts - I_ll_Be_There_for_You_Single copyAccording to RPM Magazine, the biggest song of 1995 in Canada was “I’ll Be There For You” by American pop duo, The Rembrandts. It was used as the theme song for television comedy series Friends which starred Canadian – American actor Matthew Perry. Twenty-five songs from the year-end top 100 chart below involve Canadian artists who have been bolded in red. The top song by a Canadian was “I Wish You Well” by Tom Cochrane (#4). The Canadian charts are an accurate reflection of Canadian tastes in music, and the Top 100 songs were determined both from radio airplay and nationwide sales data. The drawback with year-end charts is that songs charting from the end of one year through beginning of the next will have their chart performance split between the two years. More year-end and other Canadian charts can be found here.
