What Emily Did

I can honestly say I'm a fan of pretty much everything Emily Haines has done so far, musically. There is Metric of course, and there is her solo stuff, but there's also - let's not forget - her many wonderful collaborations. Some, like "Anthems for a 17-year Old Girl", seem to be universally loved while others, like "Stopwatch Hearts" or "Uptown Girl", are less well known. From her songs with Stars and The Stills, to her involvement in Crystal Method and even Tiesto projects - it seems that this is one musician who cannot go wrong. Here's a look at some of the highlights of her career.

K.C. Accidental - Them [Pop Song #3333] (Anthems for the Could've Bin Pills, 2000)

Stars - On Peak Hill (Nightsongs, 2001)
Stars - Going, Going, Gone (Nightsongs, 2001)

Broken Social Scene - Anthems for a 17-Year Old Girl (You Forgot It in People, 2002)

Couldn't agree more, she rocks.

Two of my all-time favorite Emily songs are from her 2004 Untitled Tour EP:

Detective Daughter (7:30 version):
